Poll Results: What Do You Think About Sachem's State Aid?

Sound off on this week's @SachemPatch poll about the new state aid figures.

Update: To see the results from last week's Sachem Patch poll, check out the final stats below.

Original: This week Sachem learned of its new proposed state aid totals from Governor Cuomo. The blow was not as bad as in 2011-2012, but there is still a large shortfall the district is going to deal with for 2012-13.

"Because of the tough choices and the historic reforms we achieved last year, we are able to propose a pro-growth budget, tackle broad fiscal reform, drive accountability in our schools to put students first, and leverage tens of billions of dollars of new investment to create jobs without significant cost to the taxpayer," Cuomo said in a statement. "Through fiscal discipline and working in partnership with the private sector, we are making New York a pro-growth State once again. This budget represents the next step in our plan to transform New York State."

Vote below to sound off about this year's figures ...

School district budget is bloated. School district should stick to education in the form of teaching reading, writing, constitution, bill of rights & to think for themselves

Mr Cuomo beware, if you go the wrong way with pensions!? this is not the midwest!
