To the editor:
I am a mother of three and on the RTM serving on Finance and Budget and it’s Education subcommittee. My goals are operating the town efficiently and providing our children with the best education possible. After significant study I voted for the shuffle because I believe it is the best alternative in terms of cost and facilities usage available to Darien.
Some are concerned the shuffle will take money from our children’s education. As part of my diligence I directly contacted members of our school administration, and current and former members of the Board of Education. I urge you all to do the same. Their responses were consistent: historically, capital projects of this nature do not impact spending on Education.
If you vote "no", another option will come, but that too will have a cost to the town and maybe not only in tax rates. Vote Yes. Visit voteyesdarien.com.
