    Really, You had no idea that the town had issues with your proposed election date of December 18th. Who are you kidding! I know for a fact that you were told that it was not a good date. You are a bully and thought you could push your own timeline. Oh so sorry that someone called you on it. BAZINGA!

      I agree with runner. I also know that Hamlin knew the town had issues with the new vote date and went ahead with it to spite the town. Playing dumb does not bode well for the budget. The people in that office (superintendent) act like a bunch of keystone cops when you walk in to ask a question.

    “I am wondering what is it that is in this budget, which is below 2009 expenditure levels, that is not understood. It has been a whole year.” Really Hamlin?? You call yourself an educator and you can’t figure it out…. resign.

    Dear School Board,
    1. Get rid of Hamlin
    2. Propose a budget
    3. Watch the budget pass
    There will be no compromise. You allowed her to ruin this district and these schools, now you get rid of her.

      If you fet rid of Hamlin(which I don’t care I don’t know her) how are you going to explain to voters that you had to increase the budget by approxiamately $130,000(pay and benefits) to hire a new superintendent? Because you will be paying her until her contract runs out.

        The Board made the choice to throw away the taxpayers’ money and put us on the hook with her for three more years when they recently extended her contract and increased her salary. They need to take responsibility for their decision to reward her when they had just cause to get rid of her handed to them by the Court system. But they chose instead to thumb their noses at the taxpayers and voters and now it will cost our district a huge sum of money on top of the havoc and damage she has done to our school system and community .

        By the time the 3rd lawsuit is over, it will have cost the district more than that amount.

      No one knows if it is a good budget or not, because Hamlin keeps telling lies when asked what is in there. She is the one that said there was money budgetted for Carl Troutt at one board meeting. Then at the next meeting she said there wasn’t. Which one is it?? She said it costs $2000 for a new vote. Then she said it was $13,000. Which one is it? Not “liking her” has nothing to do with it. She’s the one who said that our Sped Director is certified when people were asking about that hefty raise. And then she said it again. And then, one more time, in front of many people. (I have a photocopy of her conditional certificate, which means that she is not certified.) She’s the one who said that she was not getting a $5000 stipend last year for “overseeing” the uncertified Sped Director. (I have paperwork to prove that is a lie also.) She is sneaky, deceiving, and a chronic liar. 1886 people said NO. A handful of board members keep supporting her lies, extending her contract, and giving her raises. Do any of those board members honestly think that she cares an iota about Chester, Lincoln, or Mattawamkeag?? She’s here for a paycheck. When all is said and done, Hamlin will head back to Milo with a huge bank account, compliments of us, and all thanks to the Sheriff, the Preacher, and the ex-chairwoman.
