Letter: Support of the Board of Education proposed budget

To the Editor:
Ridgefield Council of PTAs Board of Directors is writing in support of the 2019-20 Board of Education budget increase of 3.6%. The Board of Education has the responsibility of deciding what is best for the education of Ridgefield’s children.
We are confident they have done their job and have the children's best interest in mind. We believe the Board of Selectman’s non-binding recommendation should not influence the Board of Education decision and the 3.6% increase should be brought to the Board of Finance.
We also ask the Board of Finance to allow the town to vote on this 3.6% budget increase.
