ALFORD — Select board member Peggy Rae Hendon-Wilson said she hoped that voters’ symbolic rejection of the Southern Berkshire Regional School District budget would send a clear message to the district: something has to give.
“We have always supported you. You could not find a town which has been more supportive,” Hendon-Wilson said, addressing the district’s superintendent Beth Regulbuto. “For us to not pass this budget, there’s a problem.”
The final vote was 16-19. The vote came after the Alford Select Board and finance committee recommended residents against passing the budget as a way to express their desire for more financial restraint from the district in coming years.
