To the editor:

I spent several hours going over the new proposed Madawaska School Budget scheduled to be voted on September 2. I have come to the conclusion that the Madawaska School Committee and School Department just don’t get it. In July Madawaska voters overwhelmingly rejected the school budget. Now the School Committee is proposing a new budget that is only about 14000 dollars less than what was rejected in July, a reduction of two tenths of one percent. Shades of the SAD 27 Budget?
