GOOD! The budget has been way out of line for years! Let those who have kids in public schools pay for it. Those who don't, don't! Keep trimming that budget. Look at OT in the police dept. How many of these guys make way over $100,000 a year? Use more cameras on Stamford roads to fine speeders. Let those who come to Stamford for work, pay to work here. Re-look at corporation taxes. Quit taxing Stamford residents to death!!!
