Hudson School Referendum Narrowly Passes
Excerpt from Hudson Star Observer:
Voters passed Tuesday’s $12 million school bond referendum by a margin of only 129 votes. Turnout was heavy with more than 6,400 voting in the single-issue election.
“It is definitely a positive thing for our community. Prior to asking for this, we did everything we could—we revisited each school’s capacity and looked for space everywhere we could. And when we had exhausted all those possibilities, we went to the community with the need for a new school and with a commitment to maintaining quality education in Hudson. This is the right solution.”
TOTAL ............................... Yes 3,300 ....... No 3,171
This allows us to build a new elementary school south of town, where most kids are currently bused across town to North Hudson. Even though my kids are out of elementary next year, it was still important to Carla and I to support the area's growth, and provide the same quality education to the new kids.
