Critical Dates to Save

There will be a Public Hearing on the Provisional Budget voted last night on Wednesday, July 14th at 7:00 PM in the Little Theater at the Portsmouth Middle School. The Final Budget could not be voted on until the next regular Town Council meeting, which would be Monday, July 26th. On that date the Council could again cut the Schools and vote not to exceed the cap. Were there to be a Referendum Drive, we would have 14 days from July 27th to get 1,350 to 1,400 signatures - this is no easy task! Therefore, we will proceed to plan and organize a Referrendum Campaign as if we still face a $1.2 million cut. We can not be caught flat footed. See the below post regarding the first planning meeting (To opponents - this is a closed meeting and I reserve the right to restrict entry)
