For the most part, voter turnout was relatively strong for Tuesday’s election.
Although, there seems to still be some discussion about voter count, I do not believe this will affect my position in the recent 15th District race. With that, I would like to thank the voters of the Oswego County 15th District for coming out to vote in the November 3rd general election.
The Oswego County Board of Elections reminds Oswego County residents who are eligible to vote on Election Day, Nov. 4, that if they will be out of the county or unable to get to the polls because of illness or physical disability, they may vote by absentee ballot.
UPDATED: A special school board meeting is set Thursday to discuss the budget. Unofficially, voters defeated the 2008-09 spending plan by a 1,666 no to 1,133 yes tally. The school board can now either adopt the budget as currently is or meet and decide to reduce the budget.
New budget proposal saves nine positions. However, the tax rate increase would jump from 3.81 to 5.72 percent.
