Thanks for your Vote,
2011, Outdoor Kiosk, Hudson, NY, installation

Midnight installation of letters on the kiosk for the John Edwards school. Using the kiosk as a public voice for the community.

Voting against a proposed budget of almost 10 more than the previous year (an almost record high for the country), Hudson City School District voters defeated the district’s 2011-2012 proposed budget by 1,249 against, and only 424 for, the budget at the school budget vote Tuesday night. After tallying the votes, the school board voted in the proposed budget as the new budget, despite the votes of the taxpayers. Voters will not be able to vote again on the budget, due to the school board’s vote. Only 18 percent of registered voters showed up to vote. Two-thirds of them voted no on the budget.
