Clarence voters reject budget, so do voters in handful of districts
Voters in six area school districts rejected spending plans on Tuesday. The margin of defeat was decisive in Clarence where 58-percent voted against a plan to increase taxes by nearly ten percent.
Voter turnout in Clarence set a record. Lines of voters were extensive throughout the day. Budgets were also rejected in Niagara-Wheatfield, Lewiston-Porter, Alden, Wilson and Bemus Point.
The margin of defeat in Niagara-Wheatfield was by a mere three votes.
