Corinne Cascadden, superintendent of SAU 3, Berlin School Board Chairwoman Nicole Plourde and Berlin Mayor Paul Grenier testified before the House Education Committee, the House Finance Committee, the Senate Education Committee and the Senate Finance Committee on the state budget over the course of several weeks. They informed members of these committees about the serious financial struggles the schools and taxpayers of Berlin are having, and that the state needs to provide more support.
Now all they worked so hard to achieve has been thrown into jeopardy because the governor saw fit to veto the budget. Whom had the governor seen and heard? Clearly not the good emissaries from Berlin and countless other communities across the state.
