Tewksbury Town Manager Richard Montuori revealed his proposed budget earlier this week. But according to a report in the Lowell Sun, Montuori told town officials that the proposed $1.8 million increase won't be enough to full support the town's needs.

The Sun reported that the Town Manager's proposed Fiscal Year 2015 budget comes in at $91,295,785. 

While the budget proposal will allow Tewksbury to maintain status quo, the newspaper reported that it will not include additional staffing in the library, Fire Department and Police Department.

"I think if you ask any department head here tonight, they'll tell you their operating budgets are razor-thin and tight," said Montuori, according to The Sun.

To J.S are you that angry I am in this race that name calling my writings"spam bot being triggered" FYI I have made improvement to shorten most of my posts. As for understanding what I am saying or trying to say, I suggest you ask me a question instead playing at your game of insults. Others here, including myself can disagree with each others views without acting rude. J.ust S.aying ...

Dear EMA, I got one post from you. I responded once in a clear manner. And then you call my stance warped and say don't worry no one will vote for you' It is one thing to disagree the other is to write a cry out about my candidacy. from Donna.

@Donna, seriously? You answered me in a clear manner? Surely you're not talking about what you wrote here, right? You haven't represented yourself well in this forum at all and I'm honestly embarrassed for you. Good luck with your candidacy because, at the rate you're going, you're going to need lots of it.

I am not angry. I was not name calling. It just seems you use the same phrases over and over again, very similar to spam emails I receive in my inbox. I am not trying to insult you, I am trying to see if you are able to speak intelligently and do not choose to do so or if you just have trouble with the English language.

To EMA, Yes seriously. I did answer your questions clearly. You choose to claim I have not. I re read your post to me. I read my answers and it seems to me that your not going to disagree with my views as reason to claim I am unfit for Tewksbury the Planning Board open position., instead you scream words of dislike for my candidacy. Feel free to ask a question and I will answer it. Also, don't you worry about wishing me luck. I will be grateful for any consideration I have during this campaign and for each vote cast for me on April 5th. Winning is my hope. Participating, my appreciation for the process of elections and love for this Town is the best reasons for me being a candidate. I have understood and accepted the advice of some patchers to ..write about things important to planning, development and my views and visions for this community. I have also used less emotion. If you have not seen improvement, perhaps you could offer up what I could do to explain my positions in a better manner. from Donna
