School budgets are always a major issue on Town Meeting
Day. We talk about the tough decisions school boards across the state have made as they try to balance the needs of schools with the
economic realities of taxpayers in difficult economic times. Our guests are Randolph School Board Chair Laura Soares, Brookline-Newfane Joint School Board Chair Kim Friedman and Grand Isle School Board Chair Herb Durfee. Listen
Also, we talk with Albany Times Union political reporter Jimmy Vielkind about New York’s gubernatorial race. The campaign has been heating up
with some prominent Democrats calling for Democratic Governor David Paterson to step aside. Paterson is feeling increased pressure
from possible Democratic challenger Andrew Cuomo and a Republican challenger, Rick Lazio. Listen
Also, we open our mailbag and read from your letters.
