The whole thing cost us time but we are alright. Frankfort and Herkimer can't say they weren't given the opportunity. Frankfort bailed out early and Herkimer voted their way out. Lucky breaks for us. We have little reason to be upset with them.

If I lived in Frankfort I'd be mad and if I lived in Herkimer I'D BE PISSED!!! They got screwed by their own.

Many point at pizza-boy and don't get me wrong his was DUMB. But he was one of about 15 losers that were instrumental in holding back or providing misinformation.

Wasn't for the other two mergers, but will vote in favor of this one. From the beginning, I always thought that Ilion-Mohawk made the most sense economically, demographically, and educationally.

Once you see how much less incentive aid they will get compared to when it was a 4 school merger and then a 3 school merger you will realize why Cosimo was pushing for the larger mergers. Now he'll just take what he can get, he'll get a raise although he's still pissed that it won't be as large as he could've gotten, and the incentive aid will barely be enough to stabilize the schools for the first 5 years, but he'll still get that raise, cus that's the way Cosimo is. Then more money will be needed from this new district's taxpayers to keep the subsidized school's programs, and it will be more than is required now. By then Cosimo will have made a nice resume and found a new job and he won't care about that. Good luck.

Is there an updated merger study showing how the Ilion/Mohawk merger would work?

How are the changes to the the existing 3 way merger study being handled?

Who is making the changes and with what public input?
