SALISBURY

Losing election a relief when victors’ responsibilities emerge

Marshall Miles of Salisbury, who had been an outspoken critic of the previous Region 1 Board of Education, waged a campaign to be elected to the board last fall, but was defeated by Jennifer Weigel. Miles, who operates Robin Hood Radio of Sharon along with Jill Goodman, and writes a blog called Region 1 Report, keeps a close eye on the actions of the board. Last Wednesday at the start of the board’s budget hearing in Falls Village, Miles came to the microphone to congrat­ulate members for working hard to come up with a plan.

“You all came in under a tough situation,” he said, then added, “When I saw the insurance costs for next year (a 22.9 percent increase) I was glad I lost the election.” Board members laughed and thanked him for his praise.
