BY RUTH EPSTEIN Republican-American

FALLS VILLAGE — Gale Courey Toensing, Falls Village representative to the Region 1 Board of Education, told community members in an informal meeting Thursday why she is voting against the district’s proposed 2012-13 budget.

Toensing, an outspoken member who conducts community forums a few times a year, focused on the budget that will be considered during a daylong referendum May 8 in the region’s six towns — Canaan, Cornwall, Falls Village, Kent, Salisbury and Sharon.

She said she was speaking as an individual and wasn’t advising people how to vote.
