To the Editors:
It’s budget time again and once more the question of accountability comes up. Who is accountable for waste, poor judgment, excesses, mistakes, and budget overruns? Who is accountable for the elegant playing fields but dilapidated roads, high teacher salaries but the lowest SAT scores in the area as well as low SBAC scores, fancy lamp posts and walkways in downtown but businesses leaving downtown, hundreds of employees in the school system but fewer than half are classroom teachers, or high residential taxes and deflated house prices? In the years that I've lived in Wilton I have never heard of anyone, employed by the town, being held accountable for any of these problems.
