In one of the sillier applications of democracy, there is a slate of candidates and a school budget to vote on today.

If we do vote No, what really happens? Not much. But it sends them a signal that we’re wanting some fat trimming.

So with the blah weather, turnout will probably be even lower. Go ahead and vote NO. Trust me, you’ll feel better.

UPDATE: No shocker…while a few budgets in Union County got shot down, ours passes and the incumbents re-elected. But the 986 of you who wanted to show the “man” how you felt are all right in my book. Well, except for the ones who are just cheap and want the kids to sit on boxes, use slates, slide rules and learn about our 48 states.
