The election is over. You Won. It's time for the two of you to get busy securing Herkimer High School's share of state aid. With all of this experience the two you keep telling us you have.This should be a no brainer. Lets get to work men.
great idea

I'm sure it's a simple phone call. Is this what Herkimer is counting on???

Yeah you're right. I wanted lower taxes and a better opportunities for my son to succeed. Instead I'm left with our identity, impending cuts, less of a suitable educational environment and raised taxes.

Now I'm banking on Butler and Seward going to Albany to ask for money. Money for a school that turned down a merger a state study said was the way to go. Yeah we got hope.

A bird in hand, nothing in the bush...brilliant. I'm happy you got what you wanted.

Taxes were never going down. Everybody conceded that. The opportunities you speak of were a lot of fluff not much substance.No one was trying to be brilliant. We were hoping for something a little more concrete in the merger and it looked very wishy washy to many of the NO vote as to what we would really wind up with. Once this merge took place there was no going back.The sky isn't falling and your son and everyone else will be ok. Don't let yourself fall prey to the fear.Butler and Seward are our representatives in Albany they certain;y have more pull there than we do. Let them make good on their campaign promises and help our kids.

Where do you get this stuff.

1.3mil down this year...the sky is falling.

Taxes were being dropped $3 per thousand in Mohawk and Herkimer. Classes we have and they don't, classes they have and we don't would have been shared by all the first year. Everyone got the memo. Click below to discover what a no vote got us.

Taxes won't go down as long as the numbers we support on public programs don't go down. We need jobs here.
As long as we are drowning in medicaid and public assistance, nothing will change. Jobs that are promised don't materialize. They need to pay enough to provide insurance benefits & a living wage. IDA, whats happening? Most of the budget goes for salaries. Definition of gravy train.County government helping themselves. BTW Mr. Bono publicly stated this is not a democracy and he makes all the decisions. How u like them apples? Change them out! New blood is what we need!
