The March poll is done. That survey asked Gasport residents how they've been impacted by the economy. The results pretty much match the numbers from around the US. Here's what they reported:

Still have a job, and confident in its future: 34%
Still have a job, but worry about its future: 58%
Laid-off: 9% (the US rate is 8.5%)
Someone else in the household was laid off: 4%

April's survey will address something that has become a hot issue in the school district....the funding - or not - of some athletic programs. A recent post about JV football possibly getting the boot created a lot of discussion about the philosophy and financing of sport, so it is hoped this survey furthers that.
