Letter: School 'wants' should be tabled to pay for Bancroft overrun


When I hear something about leaving debt to be decided by the voters, I hear code for another “override” vote. There is already a Special Town Meeting scheduled for February 2013. Proposition 2 1/2 was put in place to protect the taxpayer from excess spending, but make something an emotional issue, load a Town Meeting with “pro” voters and bingo, you have new debt exempt from the protection of Prop. 2 1/2.

What happened to the concept of saving, paying for what you need, creating a budget and sticking to it? Too old fashioned? Oh well, see you at the polls in February.
