Andrew Cuomo's idea to Consolidate School Districts is a POOR SOLUTION

I AM DISAPPOINTED in Andrew Cuomo solution to the HIGH School Tax Problem in NY State.  This is a POOR SOLUTION, since the result is basically a one-shot one time savings that will go away with future union contract increases. Also, School District Consolidation will TAKE AWAY OUR LOCAL CONTROL and OUR LOCAL VOICE about our SCHOOL'S direction.......NOTICE that Cuomo does not even mention reigning in the NY State Teacher's Union and the other state unions that have destroyed the competitiveness of this state. SEE the other blog posting about the pressure tactics used by the Highland teacher's union. This information is clear evidence why we New York State taxpayers and voters must reject any candidate who is supported by union money. Based on this, New Yorkers should REJECT Andrew Cuomo for Governor who has and continues to benefit from union support. Let's balance out the Albany legislative Democratic power monopoly of the NY State Assembly and Senate by electing Rick Lazio or Carl Paladino. I make this suggestion purely based on taxpayer logic and hope for a better future for we taxpayers and our children and grandchildren.

you're really going to criticize teachers for paying less in taxes? Do you have any idea how low a starting teachers salary can be in NYC, or any public school for that matter?
