Long Island School Budget Vote Analysis 2011-2012, Ranked by margin of victory


Long Island school Vote Results for 2011-2012 ranked based on the margin of victory.



Data taken from news12.com and with the help of a friend got it to this format for easy look-up. You can now see where your school district ranks and how much was the win to loss difference.  Its a overwhelming win, Last year 10 budgets failed and I was expecting more this year. Disappointed ! Looking at the data I don't think substantial number of budgets will fail in coming years.
But again it all depends on the economic recovery !

Voters across Long Island headed to the polls yetserday to decide whether or not to support their school district's budget proposals.

Many of the Island's 124 districts saw their budgets passed, but five district budgets were rejected. Voters in Suffolk County rejected the budget in Fishers Island. In Nassau County, Locust Valley, Oyster Bay-East Norwich, Seaford and Westbury voters rejected their budgets.

While most Long Island districts faced about a 4-percent school tax hike, some had to decide whether to support as much as a 12.5-percent school tax hike.

Voters in Herricks were asked to support a 3.8-percent school tax hike and they did. Despite the budget going through, the district, like many others across the Island, is still faced with losing more than 60 staffing positions due to state aid cuts.

Long Island Property taxes most important issue, say LIers

No surprise here ! To stop this ridiculous rise in property taxes we have to educate our fellow LIers and contact your representative that they should demand Speaker Silver respond to the pleas of homeowners across the state and support a property tax cap in New York. It has already passed the senate but is being stalled in the Assembly by Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver.

Also this year we are seeing some enormous rise in property taxes in school districts such as
William Floyd 12.47% and Seaford 8.99%. Some school districts such as Middle country is resorting to blackmailing its residents. The deal for districts residents is either approved a 6.68% increase or the district is going to force 21.61% increase in tax levy.

By a wide margin, property taxes are the most important issue facing Long Islanders, according to a Newsday / News 12 Long Island / Siena Research Institute Poll. Property taxes were cited overall by 45 percent of respondents, more than twice the 21 percent who cited "availability of good jobs" as the second most pressing issue for Long Islanders. "Property taxes are really an issue here because it keeps the young people from staying on Long Island and it will prevent the older people from staying, too," Tafuri explained.

Property taxes also are a large part of why the 57 percent of those polled said Long Islanders are headed in the "wrong direction" rather than the "right track" in the poll. A similar margin said New York State was headed in the wrong direction as well.

Property taxes are a particularly raw issue in Nassau County, where 53 percent cited them as the biggest issue, compared to 36 percent in Suffolk. Islandwide, Republicans and people 55 years or older complained about property taxes the most. "The Democrats love to spend money and they have to get it from the taxpayers," said one poll respondent, a retired Republican who lives on Nassau County's South Shore.

School costs - the biggest part of property tax bills - were also on the minds of Long Islanders who cited "the quality of public schools" among their top concerns. "The first thing I would do is eliminate tenure for teachers in public schools to cut costs," said another poll respondent, a 50-year-old Garden City man who is a Republican and who did not want to give his name. Although he was happy that his two children attending local schools got a good education there, he said his family's property tax bill has been overwhelming.

Property taxes hit a chord with all respondents, regardless of age, race, gender, religion, location or party affiliation. In addition to identifying the most important issue, the poll underlined the intensity of Long Islanders' general feelings about property taxes, with 86 percent calling the issue "very important" and 11 percent as "somewhat important." Crime, schools, good jobs and health care also received strong reactions, with traffic congestion and the local environment getting milder reactions.
