It didn't make the T&G write-up this morning, but I have it on the authority of those present that the Clinton town meeting was even more imaginative than portrayed.
The first motion made regarding the school budget was to eliminate it entirely.
And it received a second from the floor.
This was voted down.
Clinton is facing a $1 million budget gap, and parents and community members there had hoped to pull some money together to save positions. However, the budget went through and then was reconsidered without addition. Those of you familiar with Robert's Rules won't be surprised that not everyone caught that reconsideration closed debate.
No word on what the gentleman who suggested zeroing out the budget was going to do with the kids...
