Be sure to vote tomorrow! #Massapequa #SchoolBudget

Tomorrow is Tuesday, May 20, which is the day for the Budget Vote and School Board Election here in Massapequa.

I am a Mom Blogger, not a political blogger, so I do not believe in sharing my views or thoughts on politics or elections.  Because I am also still very new here in the district, I know that I needed to go and actively research these elections, what was being proposed, who was running, what to vote for.  I am sure I am not the only one who needs a “Massapequa School Board Elections 2014 For Dummies” course, so I wanted to share some articles and resources I have found for anyone who might need it.  For the sake of being neutral and fair, I am sharing articles from a variety of different sources.
