Voter's Guide: Port Washington School Budget, Board Election

Port Washington School District residents will vote on the district’s $144 million proposed budget for the 2014-15 school year on Tuesday.

The proposal calls for a 3.79  percent increase in spending over the current year and carries a 1.35 percent percent tax levy increase, which is within the state's tax cap.

School officials say the fiscal plan preserves all academic programs and services, maintains current school staffing levels and continues facilities and technology upgrades.

Two candidates are running for two school board seats. Incumbents Alan Baer and William Hohauser are both running unopposed

Polls are open from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. Tuesday in Port Washington. Find polling information and district's budget newsletter here.

It is a shame that two completely fiscally responsible school board members are running unopposed. Maybe they can explain why the Weber roof which probably never needed replacing was leaking after it was replaced due to nobody watching while the work was done. This along with the sweetheart and ridiculous contracts given out made us national laughing stocks on Saturday Night Live. Why is no one accountable? Why was no one held responsible for our declining test scores? Come to think about it, I have never seen either of these two hold anyone responsible for anything unless it was brought up by someone else and even then they fought it many times.
