UPDATE: Southampton Voters Overwhelmingly Defeat Merger Proposal In Straw Vote Tuesday

The headline and the sentiment is in direct contrast to reality. Tuckahoe is in Southampton. That would make Tuckahoe voters Southampton voters. Of all of the votes that were cast 53% of them were in favor of the merger. 47% of all votes cast were against the merger. The reality of the situation is that Southampton voters approved the merger yesterday.

Yes, Tuckahoe and Westhampton are in Southampton. The only conclusion that can be drawn here is that a small number of total Southampton voters participated and the majority of those voters pulled the lever in favor of the merger. The powers that be have heard them loudly and clearly it is guaranteed that they will get the merger they have requested. If you don't believe any of this, it should not phase you.

I'm not sure how anyone can argue with the fact that the majority of voters voted for the merger. There is no way around that fact. When you count the votes, 53% of them were yes. There can be no argument about that. The majority of voters voted to merge the schools. Twist that any way you want but the vote was in favor of the merger. The people in charge know that the people who voted did so in favor of the merger. Thanks for your detailed explanation and hope to see you at the ribbon cutting ceremony for the new school district." Oct 31, 13 7:46 AM
