Published DateTo the editor,
To my friends and constituents in Sanbornton, you may not be thinking much about the affairs of local government right now, as we do our town business (voting and meeting) in May! But I want to make certain that you have not forgotten that there is still an important meeting on Saturday March 23 at 9 a.m. at the Winnisquam Regional School District that needs your attention and participation.
For the voters in Tilton and Northfield, your March meeting season is not yet complete even after town meetings and the fire district meeting are complete. I remind you as well of the importance of your attendance and participation at the Annual Meeting of the Winnisquam Regional School District on Saturday March 23 in the high school gymnasium beginning at 9 a.m.
The School District Report for the Fiscal Year Ending June 30, 2012 is available at town offices, the SAU Office in Tilton and local libraries. It contains the information on the warrant articles and budget to be voted upon. Supporting information including the Budget Committee presentation from the February 20 budget hearing is available on the school district website at www.wrsdsau59.org Click on Information on the home page and there on the left-hand side of the page you will see a title Annual School District Meeting. All of the background information used in the budget development process can be found there.
The Annual School District meeting is the time when important decisions are made regarding the direction and support of education in our communities. The dollars appropriated at the meeting are among the most significant on the local tax rates. If you are not present you leave that important decision making to others. I hope you will join me and the Winnisquam Regional School District Budget Committee and the School Board on March 23rd at the high school gymnasium in Tilton at 9 a.m.. Thank you
Nina C. Gardner, Sanbornton Member
Winnisquam Regional School District Budget Committee
