From Marcelo Delmar:
I am dismayed at the proposed increase in the school budget. We are living in an economy where our incomes and wealth have dropped (if not vanished). We can barely hang on to our current lifestyles, and many of us are seriously considering leaving the town we love in search for a more affordable alternative.
Have you realized that, unlike the Federal Reserve, Larchmont households can’t print money?
Have you realized our wealth has dropped?
Have you realized our incomes have shrunk, if not disappeared?
WE CAN’T AFFORD THIS INCREASE, and if you insist on it we will vote with our feet and make the harsh decision of leaving this town.
This is a time for austerity, and not for largesse.
