Letter: Vote yes for school budget, appropriation

To the editor,

As you may be aware the [Region 16] school budget vote is coming up next week. Right now it is scheduled for Monday, May 5 at 7 p.m. at Woodland Regional High School. It is scheduled to be a ballot vote and you must be present (with your photo ID) to vote. On the ballot are two items, the first is whether or not approve the Region 16 operating budget for 2014-2015. The second item is to approve the use of surplus money for this year for the high school roof project. I am asking that you vote yes for both of these items.

Should a petition be signed and submitted to the towns of Prospect or Beacon Falls by Friday, the vote may be pushed to a referendum on Tuesday, May 6 from 6 a.m. to 8 p.m. Voting would take place at the Prospect Firehouse for Prospect residents and at Laurel Ledge Elementary School for Beacon Falls residents.

I urge you to get out and vote and let your voices be heard. Each time the vote goes to referendum it costs $6,000. We voted on our school budget three times last year at an expense of $18,000. Please support the school budget vote and the WRHS roof project with a yes vote.

Thank you,

Lisa Sizer
