LETTERS TO THE EDITOR: School budget anew

October 17th, 2013

You must be thinking “What? School just started! How can we be talking about the school budget so early?”

Well, the fact is that the annual school budget process for the next school year (2014 – 2015) begins in late October and ends in March. And what kicks off this process is the input from the community. So, please join the School Board Thursday, Oct. 24 from 6 to 8 p.m. in the cafeteria at Williston Central School.

This year, we will be tagging along with the Community Potluck and Learning Expo that Families As Partners has organized. Along with a great potluck dinner, more than 20 teachers and school staff members will have tables set up with information about school activities. This will be followed by two separate information sessions, and childcare will be provided if needed.

Please come join us!

Giovanna Boggero on behalf of the Williston School Board

    I am writing in response to Mr. Hoxworth’s article on transportation costs for the poor in Vermont. I would like to suggest further research on this topic before we simply just give another handout or tax credit. The poor, may, have a higher disproportionate burden on their transportation costs than the wealthier residents of Vermont; however, they also have a lower disproportionate burden on taxes and housing. Pick your evil.
    We can simply just give every poor Vermonter an energy efficient car, gas card, free tuition, renter’s rebate, etc.…but the only way out of poverty is through the combination of education, hard work, and discipline. Education and degrees are not handed out or purchased; a person has to EARN them. This seems to be the only way out of poverty—sorry, there are no shortcuts.
    If we continue this trend of enabling, our entire state will be a welfare state.
