Listen to voters explain how they voted on the Newton North site plan and why.

NEWTON

I voted no, it's a terrible site plan and a terrible building. Basically what they designed was a gold-plated athletic complex with all sorts of athletic fields suitable for Olympic training ... then they squeezed in a crappy little high school in the corner. The price is way too high and it appears it's mostly there because of the athletic fields.

I voted yes because I believe that education is a very high priority. I happen to be a teacher and I think that it is important to put money into education and it is important to fund what is needed to be funded in this city even if the price is high. Even if we need to raise taxes.
