Really? Not properly educated??? What do you want? Retired teachers? We have Tsonos who is a PC grad and runs his own business! Furtado who has served on as State PTA President and on several education related boards including RIPIN, and graduated from Bryant! Now the past school committee really "strangled" our city! Running up a $7.3 million deficit!!! That is why the budget commission came in, a $7.3 million dollar deficit and piles of unpaid bills!!!!

How about Bradley? Sitting on an $80 million dollar property, NON-TAXED!! And they regularly call on city fire and rescues, and they also bill the city to the tune of @$300,000 per month to use city buildings (RENT FREE) to teach special needs students. What would you call it when someone charges you to use your own buildings??? And check out their website, they are advertising for students from across the state to attend the "Bradley Partnership" in OUR rent free buildings!!!
