I am glad to see that the West Babylon taxpayers said no to the over-the-cap school budget, and no to higher taxes ["3 districts that sought to exceed NY limit are defeated," News, May 21].

The school board should not waste any more money asking for a second vote, but instead should figure out how to manage spending with the austerity budget. The community has spoken; no means no.
