It was not unanimous


To the Editor:

A story published Jan. 15, “Oak Bluffs FinCom objects to hike in school assessment,” suggested that the vote of the Oak Bluffs Finance Committee on Dec. 18, 2014, to send letters to the Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School Committee and the All-Island School Committee was unanimous. It was not.

Six members voted yes and two voted no. One member was absent. At the time of the vote the committee did not have budget information for other town departments, so another member and I thought that sending the letter was, at best, premature.
