Signs of the times

Protesters opposed to Morristown’s proposed $10 million budget demonstrate next door to the Town Meeting Day polling place. They were solidly in the majority, as voters defeated the budget 1,141-391.

Morristown voters have sent the town’s proposed $10 million operating budget back to the drawing board, and it will be a very different board doing the drawing this time.

Residents overwhelmingly defeated the first eight-digit spending measure in the town’s history on a vote of 1,441-391 and, in a landslide election, chose an anti-budget selectboard candidate over a 20-year incumbent who helped craft that budget.
