I am writing in support of the 2010-2011 school budget passed by the Mamaroneck School Board. Having attended many budget meetings, I do believe the administration and the Board worked diligently to balance the fiscal and educational concerns of the community to develop the best budget they could in difficult times. In addition, they have provided the community with a huge amount of information about the how the district spends money in a way that would have been unimaginable a few years ago.
As Superintendent Fried has said many times, “this is the best of the worst.” I feel the administration was also responsive when concerns were raised about specific cuts.
I hope residents of this community will support this budget and be sure to get out and vote on May 18.
