And I know what tax lovers will say: it wasn't a big margin. Yet they are wrong. Twenty-eightRead Morepercen t of the voters turned out and 1636 of those said no. That means in any language that your constituents want the budget cut.

The results are in. 26 was enough. The largest increase I could swallow would be 1% increase. AnRead Moreans wer to most questions on the Budget has been, Payroll, Insurance , Fuel Increases. The Teachers, Municipal, and Police in Monroe, have not received an increase of 2.2% per year. You can look at the Contracts. This Budget is for " One Year " not a normal three year contract with the above Unions. Their Insurance Premiums have gone up also, along with the deductibles. Lay-offs have occurred also. Why for 2014/2015 : Administration-Certified------------- + 4.28% Administration-Cert.Sec.Inst.Ld.-----+100.00% Administration-Principals-Cert.--------+2.30% Professional Educational Services------+18.46% Office Personnel and Mgt.---------------+5.59% All these increases seem to be going to the Top in Management, not the workers. Than this beauty: Line Item #753400-Other Professional Services $973,698. That's almost the whole PW workers Budget. If the Ed Administrators can't cope with the requirements of the Job, they should be replaced with better qualified ones.

Just because you allege to know someone does not provide the readers with the questions poised! Do you have concrete answers or are you full of IT???

The massive legal fees are from cases as you state from early 2000' s. Get over yourself
