My reaction to Region One’s fifth budget defeat in a row can be summed up in one tweet:
Region 1 budget fails for the 5th time. Boring! Keep holding these votes at town halls. At $8k a pop, they’re fun monthly social gatherings.

I am officially no longer interested. My kids are getting a good education and the political agitators continue to press for a pound of flesh. If those folks insist on spending thousands of dollars — none of which will go toward education — on monthly referenda, then so be. I have better things to think about.
P.S. The Region One Report blog is hyperventilating that the Central Office misreported the above results. Evidently, the Sharon yes votes should have read 82 instead of 28.
