Some interesting information in the passage of the Region One Budget on the second vote… 2

Yes, the budget passes. But there is a definite trend..a look at the number reveals quite a bit…

1) The budget passed  because two towns voted heavily in favor (Salisbury 172-91) (Kent 74-18)

2) In the four other towns, the budget was defeated 298-254

3) Cornwall (the home of Region One chair Phil Hart) the budget passed by only 15 votes…the closest in over 10 years…

So, we now have the beginnings of an active, informed, interested taxpayer base that will grow over the next year. Attend more meetings, vote , participate in the process….we can make a difference, and we can be heard!
