Obviously from the picture the Chelmsford Public Schools are the problem :o) Online classes... it will happen, we could be the model.

The powers to be in this town always compare Chelmsford, with Andover, Carlisle, Westford, Weston, Franklin, etc. and othe such towns. Get real, people Chelmsford is not like those other towns. Stop trying to be like other towns, and be your own town. Most people in this town can't afford the taxes, along with all the others charges this town has. If you have to make cuts so be it. Live by your means and not somebody else's. I know running this town isn't easy, but be realistic. Then you got the schools. We have been bailing out this department for years. Now it is worse than it ever has been. I went to the girls and boys basketball game last Sunday. The basthroom was filthy, the hallway to the bathroom was dirty. What ever happened to the $500,000.00 a year they were saving on out sourcing the custodians? Know wonder why more kids are going to Nashoba Tech, costing the town more money. They should take that cost right out of the school budget. And no, I don't have all the answers.

Tax Classification
Pat Mullen January 29, 2014 at 04:24 PM
Tax classification. No. "Free" cash. Nope. It all starts and ends with the state legislature. Chelmsford is punished by virtue of its voting record - or more precisely, its lack of voting for Democrats. The legislature divides and conquers Chelmsford with multiple representatives to prevent real representation of the voters interests. It withholds monies due the town in a criminal manner and redistributes those funds to other communities that support the regime. How very tolerant and inclusive of our enlightened brethren on Beacon Hill. The truth is incontrovertible, malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end; there it is.
