Letter: Essex Town Government, Elementary School Budgets Draw Mild Response at Annual Hearing

To The Editor,

The statement in the subject article: “There were no calls for specific reductions or other changes to the budget plan …” is absolutely NOT TRUE.  I attended the meeting and made specific line item recommendations to reduce about $13,000 in the budget.  These reductions, in my opinion, would have had no impact on the services provided by the town.
