Goldrick: BET Republicans ignored the values of the community

“Contrary to Drake’s insinuation that Greenwich spends a great deal on education, that 46% figure actually ranks far below virtually every other suburban municipality in the state. Indeed, most comparable suburban Connecticut towns allocate a vastly higher percentage of their total budgets, between 60%-75%, to fund their school systems. A key reason that our school system’s budget comprises such a small proportion of the budget is that Greenwich enrolls the smallest percentage of its school-aged children in its public school system of any municipality in Connecticut.” – Sean Goldrick Continue Reading →

Massive cuts to our universities? Huge tax increases on public school teachers? Weakening our gun laws? Membership in an NRA front group? Racist voter suppression?
