  2. How about that! Pam Perron and Bernadette Walsh voting against the budget, when they knew darn well the budget was going to pass. This was a Jeff Voigt era grandstanding, where they could look like good guys or in their case good gals, without the problem of the budget actually not passing. Those two are despicable.

  3. How can the public view the budget document that was voted on last night? Is there a link somewhere on the village website?
