There is absolutely no reason for this "NO" vote other than pure greed and spitefulness. The budget has already been committed and can't be changed so any further elections are a moot point. I believe yesterday "NO vote" was the School having a temper tantrum. They didn't get their way so they will make it cost as much as possible for the rest of us.
What is the point of this ? Is the School trying to increase the tension between the School Department and the town? Are they doing this to set the stage for next years Budget Battle? Are they trying to take money away from another town department? Possibly they want the money from the winter salt budget or they want to take money from the Library. Who knows
This is a hostage situation pure and simple. And I for one am ashamed that Lisbon has this greedy "special interest group" that gives Lisbon a bad name.
