How do school board candidates view corporate influence in public education? What do the people running for Board of Selectmen want to accomplish for the town?
These were some of the questions Ridgefield High School students asked last week, in the 50th anniversary candidates debate organized by the League of Women Voters and the social studies department.When “questions from the audience” were allowed, RHS student Brian Sullivan said he was “concerned about corporate influence in the system” and asked Board of Education candidates how they’d view corporate sponsorships or donations of money or equipment influencing the board and students.

During my twenty-three year career with the U.S. National Team, I was competing all year round. When I wasn’t competing, eating or resting, I performed what I liked to call “maintenance work” - drills that helped me maintain a good feel for the ball.
Maintenance work was all about getting back to basics. In fact, I still do these basic drills with my instructional soccer camp, the Kristine Lilly Soccer Academy, during the summer months. It’s my belief that a player who practices basic skills will eventually become a great technical player. One of my teammates on the U.S. National Team was Michele Akers, the most technically sound player I have ever seen. Her technique kicking a soccer ball was so precise, powerful, and consistent that she was deadly from anywhere on the field.

Ridgefield owes more than $100 million, pays $14 million a year in debt service, and has the third highest per capita debt of any municipality in Connecticut.The Board of Finance heard a proposal to finance another $4 million to purchase two-thirds of the Schlumberger property, with the remaining one-third to be sold to a private developer at a below-market price to construct 50 housing units. Mr. Marconi’s motivation to purchase this property is to “control its destiny,” but has no plans to use the property or proposed offsets from the current budget to pay for it.
