Hooksett voters reject Pinkerton Academy contract
In a turnout more than double that of 2013, voters cast their ballots and Article 3 failed by a vote of 1,026 to 792. The decision sends a seven-member school board — with only two incumbents — back to work in terms of an anchor high school for Hooksett students.
"Right along I said we were going to bring the contract to the public and let the public decide, and that's what they decided," said outgoing school board chairman Trisha Korkosz, who lost her bid for another three-year seat. "I think the community thinks a 'no' vote will get them a better deal, and we'll see how that pans out for them."
