At a time when our fellow citizens upstate are desperate for jobs and economic growth, casinos may be better than nothing. But how much better the opportunities for upstaters would be if, instead of making bets on casinos, their politicians in Albany would do something to change New York’s shameful ranking as the least business-friendly state in the nation.

What these administrators are doing are kicking the tax increase can down the road.  So those small increases should not be voted for now because we will pay dearly for it in two, three years.  It’s plainly bad governance.


monticelloProtest High Taxes: Vote NO on Sullivan County School Budgets on Tuesday

Too many schools, too many administrators, too high salaries, too many games.


by Tommie Jefferson


The last post in this Writer’s Workshop of Sullivan County by Ruby Pixman entitled “School Budget Vote: Better education opportunities for children translate into better lives for all” urged readers to vote yes for school budgets that are being considered in an election on Tuesday.
Mr./Ms. Pixman gave an admirable, but misguided argument that voting for the bloated budgets and the various new construction projects being proposed was necessary to improve our future as a community.  He acknowledged that taxes obviously will go up, but we had to keep the big picture in mind when funding our children’s education.
While his or her argument was righteous, it was also misleading. The big picture is that our educational system in Sullivan County is broken.  There are several valid reasons to vote NO on Tuesday.
Tomorrow’s vote is our only way of protesting an extremely antiquated and very expensive system of funding our children’s education in Sullivan County.
