UPDATED: Two Tiverton-Related Notes
UPDATE: I was able to restore the lost post
1. The post to which I linked on the Tiverton Citizens for Change blog was accidentally deleted, this morning. My time is way too limited to reconstruct it, and I apologize for any confusion.
2. The Tiverton Budget Committee voted last night to put a level-funded budget for the school district on the docket for the financial town meeting. Inasmuch as my visibility seems have positioned me to be among the most viscerally disliked people in town, I thought I should note — in my personal capacity — that I do not agree with that result. I don’t agree with it strategically, as a means of reallocating resources from pay and benefits for adults back toward programs for students, and I don’t agree with it as a final outcome, at least not yet, when the staff just voted to re open its contract and the school committee and teachers haven’t played their cards, yet.
