Who are they representing?
To the Editor:
The scheduled two budget meetings for Mexico have taken place.
The end result was a new budget for Mexico voters to vote on which is more than the first budget which we defeated. The selectmen (not Byron Ouellette) basically refused to listen to the voters who took a pen in hand on June 11 and 4084 times marked the word "no"
Who are they representing? Byron Ouellette made an attempt to give up selectmen's pay to help cut the budget. None of the others went along.
Here's what happens next. A "no" vote will bring us back to last year's budget. There will be no third chance to vote on a third budget. So we are between a rock and a hard place and really don't have much choice.
We can send a message and vote "no" all the way just to show we meant "no" the first time and we still mean "no" or we can say "no" to only administration, library and unclassifieds. This will save is a little over $15,000. For myself, this is a slap in the face and us not the cuts the people wanted. I will quote Betty Barrett and say, "they don't amount to a hill of beans."
Come and express your feeling at the public hearing on July 23. Vote on July 30. I have just one last word, recall. Your vote, your money.
