    WOW! Who would have guessed this? I’m guessing there’s more to the story than this. Maybe there was to much pork/waste else where.


    NEWTOWN, Conn. (AP) — Newtown residents have rejected a budget that included money for extra school security in the wake of the December school shootings.

    Voters turned down the $72 million school budget by 482 votes and rejected the $39 million town government budget by 62 votes Tuesday. Nearly 4,500 residents voted on the plans, which would have increased spending by 4.7 percent next fiscal year.

    Officials put an extra $770,000 in the school and town budgets to hire extra police officers, unarmed security guards in each of Newtown’s public and private schools. The plan was spurred by the shootings that killed 20 first-graders and six educators at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

    Jeffrey Capeci, chairman of the town’s Legislative Council, and First Selectwoman Patricia Llodra say the budget increase of 5.25 percent was a hard sell to voters.
