Stamford residents seek more input on school budget

Full story: North Adams Transcript

Some town voters apparently want a second chance to vote on the 2010-11 school budget and possibly to make more cuts, but a reported petition drive has thus far stayed mostly out of the public eye.

The way I see it, the petition was not to take more away from the kids. The petition was to let the school board know that parents and townspeople are sick of their leadership and their mischievous ways. They are so vague when it comes to letting us know all the facts about the budgets The school board is supposed to be working for the towns people and not to form their own agenda. They are the ones that are responsible for letting us folks know the whole truths so that we as tax payers can make an educated decision.

Exactly how many people, out of the 230 voters who cast votes this year, are "sick of their leadership and their mischievous ways"??? If it was a majority, they would have been voted out. And, speaking of "mischievous ways", what about the two board members who sat on the board while simultaneously working for the school and being best pals with our principal??? This was a MAJOR conflict of interest, and HIGHLY UNETHICAL, if not outright ILLEGAL! All while our Superintendent, like a slippery snake, covered over the whole thing with his legal sounding mumbo-jumbo. And, if you want the truth and not vague answers from the board about the budget, go to the budget meetings next time, as others on this forum already told you!

Michievous and vague sounds more like the principal and superintendent than the rest of the board. Maybe you should creep down their backs. They are the ones pulling shady stuff all the time. How about working on the useless principal and the affairs and the lying???

I will agree with you smiley, too bad we could not vote for the principal. She is running this place into the ground.
