Voters in Edison, North Arlington reject school spending proposals

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.

In Edison (Middlesex), a massive $189 million plan to expand capacity at two high schools was also defeated.

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
