To the Editors:
In order to make Wilton more competitive by increasing home values versus surrounding towns, we must decrease taxes sending a strong message to the Board of Education by voting down the budget. For years they claimed fabricated enrollment numbers in order to renovate a preschool for over $40 million when in fact enrollment is falling. The BOE has not effected best practices and has hired coaches and coaches of coaches for teachers for millions in consulting fees. Good teachers are leaving. The new financial director uses terms like “voodoo economics.” Outplacement costs were $164,000 per student. Enough is enough. Our taxes have skyrocketed as a result of the bloated BOE and our home values have decreased considerably compared with surrounding communities.
