The Greenwich Board of Education has devolved into eight (nxxxxxxxxps) sitting around a table lurching from one costly fiasco to the next.

Why I Did Not Vote for the Town FY 2019-20 Budget Letter to the editor from Karen Fassuliotis published in Greenwich Free Press, March 29, 2019

“Maybe I Will Be Proven Wrong, But I Doubt It” – Karen Fassuliotis

“Maybe I will be proven wrong, and I hope I am, but I doubt it.  The BOE projects that were voted on today will likely be swallowed up in regulatory approvals and other roadblocks. We might even find ourselves with another remediation project at the high school. And while this BET feels that there should be an exception for the schools who apparently now do not need to follow our town’s long-established process for approving capital projects, that is – monies first for feasibility to get through the planning/MI process, and then come back for the full appropriation, I have no problem approving projects that address safety concerns in the schools – I would have voted for replacement of the bleachers and monies for feasibility/Architectural & Engineering design only – but bundling these projects to a more grand scheme will simply delay the implementation of measures to correct the safety concerns, not expedite them – which is a concern in itself.” – Karen Fassuliotis, Republican Member, Board of Estimate and Taxation, Town of Greenwich
