Why weren’t you there?

To the Editor:

It is a shame more Islanders did not attend Stephen Nixon’s high school budget presentation. Don’t you want to know what your taxes pay for?

Mr. Nixon gave an excellent PowerPoint presentation on the school budget. It is unfortunate that the cost of education continues to go up with little financial support from the state. However, what you missed is his description of the success of our school in comparison to other schools and the state. We far exceed in all categories.

Continue to aspire, collaborate and engage. Keep up the good work. Maybe next we have a few more citizens attend.
