Only four people elected to speak at the public hearing Tuesday night.
A small turnout at Old Mill High School made Tuesday night's school board public hearing last no longer than 25 minutes. Only four people elected to give testimony at the hearing, with each commending the board and Superintendent Kevin Maxwell for the proposed budget. Old Mill parent Lisa Shore said she wasn't surprised by the hearing's brevity. "This isn't the time where [the budget] is going to be an issue," Shore said. "Thursday will be different," said Ray Leone, president of the Anne Arundel County Council of PTAs, referencing the next hearing when the school budget for fiscal year 2013 will be discussed again in Annapolis.
