School Vote Should be November 5th NOT December 10th.
Ulster County's Election Commissioners have verified that school budget votes could be handled on Election Day in November. Therefore, why not have this important building vote when everyone comes out to vote in November? This is the same subtle voter suppression technique that is used for the School Budget and school board votes held in May instead of November. Let's call a spade a spade. If the KHS renovation/expansion Vote is held on Election Day, many more people will vote and express their opinion and the project would probably be voted down. If the KHS renovation/expansion Vote is held on December 10th, during the Christmas shopping season, the vote total will be way down and the building project could possibly pass. Is this anyway to run a democracy? I don't think so. The Kingston School Board and administration should be ashamed of themselves. This is pure bold arrogance.
