Letter to the Editor

printed 05/26/2023


It is very concerning that the Worcester County Commissioners rejected the school board’s budget.

Lack of transparency was sited as the reason.

Does that mean that in the past their budgets had clarity but this year’s doesn’t?

As a resident and taxpayer, I would like to know the specifics.

The net result is that teachers and supporting staff will not get raises but county employees will.

This decision disrespects teachers who are the cornerstone of a good school system.

What were Bertino, Abbott, Bunting and Fiori thinking? I can’t believe there wasn’t a way to work this out.
