"Ledyard sports, school paper face cuts," (May 1): I read the budget proposal that was put out by Ledyard. In my opinion the large increase in the budget comes from health insurance for teachers and workers. The article does not address this. The money that is being taken back from sports, school staff, etc. is really pennies.
I do not know about the rest of you, but how come the teachers and workers do not have to pay for some of their health care? I for one had to. If it is a union issue, then I would think that it is time to address it. You can not just keep increasing taxes in Ledyard and expect persons on fixed incomes to be able to stay here or other persons to come in and pay for this. Maybe it is time for a clean sweep at the next elections.
