Letter To The Editor


To the Editor,

I’m going to bring up the town and school budget repeatedly over the next two months. If you’re not interested just put me under your parakeets unread, I’ll understand. It says something (you can decide what) that I spend a lot of time on the budgets.


The Northwood School budget is built without any sense of real need or compassion. I don’t say that lightly and understand that I just irritated a number of people. Just look at the last two years of unspent money. Rest assured that this school board member would, if he had any trust in our financial data, have voted to spend some of that money on genuine needs. I don’t, didn’t. Unspent, almost $700,000. If we don’t need it we shouldn’t take it from you.


After much drama the 16/17 year budget is $11,866,715. I wish I had room to tell you of the bs, whoops I mean drama. The budget should not be more than $11.778,544. There are 5 extra Coe-Brown students and two extra Coe-Brown special education student differentials in the budget, “ just in case.” That is $88,171 just for starters that should come out. Due to your generosity we have $112,000 (high school)+ $50,000 (special education) in trust accounts for those possibilities and another emergency retention fund of $216,000. Totaling $380,000 of your money, generously given, sitting in trust accounts for a huge influx of students. Five years ago all three districts in our SAU had 726 students each, We will likely be under 600 in the 16/17 year.


Budgeting is very important. The board simply went along with the SAU. They let the fox into the hen house. I’ll talk about our default budget later, you be the judge.

What Ties It All Together


What makes Bernie Sanders such an appealing candidate to so many of us? I know that for me it really matters that, instead of taking one issue at a time and promising a fix for it, he has an overarching view of how all of the issues fit together. No other candidate has made that argument with such force and perseverance, that the pain and, yes, fear that so many of us are experiencing as we contemplate our futures, and the futures of our children and grandchildren, all of that is part and parcel of the domination of what I call “big money” on our political system.


Bernie sees the pattern, that all of the issues, from the climate crisis to student loans, are tied together by the fact that enormous profits have been and are being made by the industries involved. Part of those profits go to campaign finance contributions. He understands that there is no real fix without ending this corruption of our system, and the first step is running one’s campaign on contributions from individuals and individual workers through their unions. The differences between union and corporate donations are well described in this article, do read it all:


Bernie’s campaign is a WE campaign, and the idea that we the people as individuals must fund it is part and parcel of this. We fund the campaign, we vote and we hold elected officials accountable.
