THIS PROBABLY WON'T BE POSTED BECAUSE IT SAYS WHAT MANY ARE THINKING BUT WON'T SAY OR PRINT ? Patchogue Medford teachers proved how GREEDY they are by not taking a pay cut or freeze ! They always say "DO IT FOR THE KIDS" ! In fact THE PATCHOGUE MEDFORD TEACHERS DID IT FOR THEMSELVES and now will get a raise of almost 6% on top of the already inflated salary. Did anybody else out there get a 6% raise ? Many other school district teachers voted for a pay cut or freeze to also include the unfair step raise that teachers get every year on top of the regular raises. Did PATCHOGUE MEDFORD send out 2,000 flyers to the last 2 years graduates (KIDS) to vote yes like they did a few years ago ? The people who gets stuck with the tab is the home owner and they are the only ones that should be able to vote for a school budget and or library budget. An 18 year old only thinks about saving his teacher's job of last year and knows nothing about the responsibility of home ownership and taxes. Teachers schould not be able to vote either since we all know they come out in numbers to vote yes. THANK YOU AND HAVE A SPARKLING-LONG SUMMER OFF WHILE THE REST OF US WORK TO PAY OUR SCHOOL TAXES !

I COMPLETELY AGREE WITH THOMAS W. O'HAIRA!---MY OPINION IS THE SCHOOL BUDGET VOTING SYSTEM IS EXTREMELY CORRUPT. IT'S HARD ON SENIOR CITIZENS TO GET OUT AND VOTE, AND IF THE SCHOOL BOARD DOES NOT LIKE THE RESULTS OF THE VOTE, THEY KEEP HOLDING RE-VOTES, UNTIL THEY GET WHAT THEY WANT AND WIN! DEMOCRACIES DO NOT WORK THIS WAY, COMMUNISM AND SOCIALISM DO! THIS IS THE U.S. OF AMERICA, AND NOT HOW OUR GOVERNMENT ON ANY LEVEL WORKS! SINCE WHEN IS THIS CORRUPTION ACCEPTABLE IN THE ELECTION SYSTEM OF THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA? OUR FOREFATHERS WOULD BE TURNING OVER IN THEIR GRAVES! THERE SHOULD DEFINITELY BE SUBSTANTIAL EXEMPTIONS ON SCHOOL TAXES FOR THE MANY OF US OUT HERE WHO ARE STRUGGLING TO MAKE ENDS MEET, AND DO NOT HAVE SCHOOL AGE CHILDREN, NO CHILDREN AT ALL, AND ESPECIALLY SENIOR CITIZENS! WAKE UP AMERICA, AND STOP BEING SO APATHETIC. .... OR YOU CAN JUST KEEP ALLOWING THIS CORRUPTION TO TAKE OVER OUR COUNTRY UNTIL AMERICA IS DEAD. THANK YOU. OUTRAGED IN PATCHOGUE-MEDFORD!
