In a bipartisan, and unanimous vote the Kingston Common Council's Finance committee voted on a memorializing resolution that I brought forward, asking that the State Legislature look at alternative ways of funding public education through property taxes. I'm very happy that this has moved forward, and we are one step closer to real property tax reform. People have talked about changing the way schools are funded for years, but I think with Governor Spitzer in office, who ran of Property tax reform, now is a perfect time to address this legislation.
On a similar note : Assemblyman Kevin Cahill will be addressing the Districtwide PTA Council, and answering questions on the way public schools are funded. The meeting will be tomorrow at 7pm, in the Kingston Council Chambers.
