Tension Lingers Over Northampton Override Vote

The voters have had their say on the matter, but there seems to be some residual tension from Tuesday’s vote to approve a $2.5 million budget-balancing prop 2 1/2 override in Northampton. ¬†Ward 7 Councilor and override opponent Gene Tacy presented a copy of a picture in Wednesday’s “Daily Hampshire Gazette” as evidence of he felt was gloating by override proponents, prompting an exchange with council President Bill Dwight. ¬†Ward 4 Councilor and override supporter Pamela Schwartz took exception to Tacy’s characterization of her group’s response to Tuesday’s win. The council voted final approval of the Fiscal 2014 budget, which did not have to be cut because the override was approved.
