POLL: Little Silver Passes Full-Day Kindergarten
A little over 1,100 residents voted in Tuesday's referendum. Do you agree with their decision?
Of the 1,089 residents that came out to the polls, 615 voted in favor of the referendum to build two new classrooms at Point Road School and 474 voted against the initiative, according to Business Administrator Amy Lerner.
She said the district received 13 absentee ballots in favor of the referendum and 16 ballots opposed.
A "handful" of provisional ballots were also submitted, said Lerner, but needed to be sent to Freehold to have residencies verified.
"It wasn't resounding," said Board President Kevin Brennan on the fairly close race, "but it certainly ended with the right result."
Brennan said that the board appreciated "the support of the community."
"I think the administration did a good job laying out the benefits of the full-day program," he added, "and the community agreed."
