Hamilton Town Meeting
Saturday, May 8, 9 a.m.
High School Auditorium
Free child care — Miles River Multipurpose Room

Hamilton Town Meeting is this Saturday. Every body counts – we need you there to support the schools.

Please make every possible effort to be at Town Meeting for Article 2-7, the School Budget

Article 2-7 includes the appropriation for the school district that represents an average 2.5% increase between the two towns — just 1.8% from Hamilton. This is not an override or a debt exclusion.

The Selectmen and Finance and Advisory committee support this budget, and it has already passed at Wenham Town Meeting. But Article 2-7 is expected to be challenged in Hamilton.

We need every school supporter to come and vote Yes on Article 2-7 as it is written. Accept no changes or substitutes.

The Article is expected to be taken up early in the meeting — at approximately 9:30 a.m. Please make an effort to be on time for this important vote.

Also of interest to school supporters:

  • Article 5-4 Creation of a Stabilization Fund for the Regional School District
  • Article 5-5 School Committee’s Amendments to the Regional School District Agreement
  • Article 5-6 Citizens’ Petition for an “Operational” Audit of the Regional School District

Once again:

Hamilton Town Meeting
Saturday, May 8, 9 a.m.
High School Auditorium

Use our free child care in the Multipurpose Room of the Middle School, or ask your relatives or Wenham friends to pitch in so that all voters in your household can make their voices heard to support the schools.
