NORTH ARLINGTON, N.J. – Residents in three New Jersey municipalities shot down multi-million dollar school district spending proposals on Tuesday.
In North Arlington (Bergen), a $10 million security upgrade referendum went down 906 votes to 585.
Down in South Jersey, Moorestown (Burlington) voters rejected two $26 million bond questions by double-digit margins.
The exception of the night was Hillsborough (Somerset) where locals passed their local school spending question by a 2-to-1 margin. This measure concerned school repairs; an all-day kindergarten proposal was defeated back in March.
