A local citizens group, Support our Schools, is fighting cutbacks at Hamilton-Wenham, Globe North reports.

"Let's say that we received a tremendous amount of feedback that they want the district to maintain level services," said school committee chairman Richard Boroff. "At the very least, they wanted voters to be given the chance to say, 'Yes, we'll pay for this.' "

Like many communities, Hamilton and Wenham have held several votes to override Proposition 2 1/2 in recent years. In one vote last spring, voters approved an extra $500,000 for the school district but drastic cuts were still required.
