Hearing from the state’s other political leaders this morning.
Massachusetts Selectman Association’s annual meeting just ended, which focused on education funding and how the schools and town sides can share the town budget. Best to have an agreement on a formula how to do so.
Let’s get the towns finances in order first! Establish a true five year plan, develop sustainable balanced budgets that do not require unaffordable tax increases, provide full fiscal transparency on both town and school sides, provide full information to the Warrant Committee (Finance Committee) so the proper governance checks and balances can occur and residents can have confidence that their tax dollars are well spent.
