West Hartford News: Reduced Budget finalized by Council; BOE must make cuts.

West Hartford News is reporting that the West Hartford Budget has been finalized. But there is still a long way to go to reduce Board of Education spending. The recent story about the Superintendent of Schools, David Sklarz, receiving an increase and earning a whopping 188K per year salary - doesn't give us pause for hope.

The most interesting comment in this story comes from Art Spada (a Rocky Hill transplant), who is quoted as saying, "Quality of life is a grey area. How do you tighten your belt without gutting the town?"

Gutting the town? Art, do you really think this budget "guts" the town? Look around you. That kind of rhetoric completely discredits you, and cheapens the debate.

Fellow West Hartfordites should join the debate at the West Hartford Blog site.
