Hampton Bays school budget includes 18.5 percent tax hike

Some simple math for you, Beach Gal:
Vote Yes: Pay $307 taxes
Vote No: Pay $150 taxes

You vote No, and it will take years to recover.

Taxes will go up, because the world is in economic turmoil, and it's rolling downhill from the fed gov, state gov, and town gov.

We are all victims here. You vote no, students will pay the ultimate price, and so will HB homeowners. A No vote will kick HB back to its reputation of old.

Beach gal, pull YOUR head out of the sand. It seems like you've gotten a little bit too much sun! " Apr 24, 10 7:41 AM

Don't punish your own children by voting NO in defense of your own racist views.

Kudos on being consistent, Kelly.

You are consistently ignorant and hateful.

So, you're voting NO to make a statement on salaries (collectively bargained), pensions (controlled by the state) and "non-essential activities" that could help a kid get a scholarship and get into a college?

Kelly, like it or not, we are all impacted by the economic crisis, starting at the national level, and working its way down to the state, local, and school level.

We should not take out our anger on the schools and the students that attend them. This snap decision could have a long-lasting negative effect on all of us! " Apr 24, 10 3:40 PM

Can someone please clarify the numbers for me? Why was 18.5% reported?

I'd like to be informed and vote on the budget based on the FACTS and not emotions that come from one side of the story.

There has got to be more to the story than what was reported.

Don't misdirect you anger about the state pension system for the school budget. There two different arguments." Apr 24, 10 4:21 PM
