GOLDRICK: The Facts Show We Have Cash Reserves to Invest In Our Schools

“The town of Greenwich does, indeed, possess tens of millions of dollars in cash reserves it can, and should, put to use for our sorely needed school capital projects.  The reason Mr. Camillo and BET Republicans refuse to do so is their deep-seated hostility toward our public school system.  They are determined to delay, deny, and underfund our schools.  They’ve done it for years, and they will continue to do so until they’re voted out.  And that is the bottom line.” – Sean Goldrick, Riverside Continue Reading →
