Councilman Frank Caligiuri has bravely and courageously managed to get a “victory” dinner cancelled by the inept and bumbling board of education that seems to believe they are entitled to some kind of special dispensation from us, the taxpayers.
Let me delve into this just a little bit… The school board which is unable to control spending, and thus taxes, hires a PR firm at thousands of our tax dollars expense, to educate us on raising our taxes and why that is a good idea. Then, the same inane school board wants to hold a “victory” dinner paid for by the company that they hired as the architectural consultant for this ludicrous and grandiose project, The Design Collaborative. To make matters even worse, the Superintendant and School Board president are attempting to cast Mr. Caligiuri as the bad guy. I just don’t see it that way!
Mr. Caligiuri appears to be the only elected official standing up for taxpayers, for all of us that fund this town, this school district, and these dinners they want. How many other dinners did the school board and others get before the vote? Mr. Caligiuri is a very courageous elected official during this time when it appears that our elected officials are openly mocking us with reckless abandon. Please let Mr. Caligiuri know you appreciate that he is looking out for you, the taxpayer in this instance. His e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org
It continues to appear that the taxpayers are not being served by the school board we elected… I can only imagine how mismanaged the schools are… afterall we rarely if ever get a glimpse of what goes on inside the buildings we entrust our children to everyday. I can say that I’m not encouraged by what we can see and by the decisions our elected school board makes that become public, even when they would rather we not know about them.
Please let me know your thoughts on the tax increase you received this Christmas season…
