If Warwick had programs to attract new taxpayers, we wouldn't have to close much-appreciated schools like Randall Holden. I have proposed several plans, such as tax rebate checks for new home buyers and a two year moratorium on building permits. These ideas were applauded by almost everyone. Those few that criticized them couldn't think of better ideas.

Warwick has lost 5,800 taxpayers in the last ten years. The long term solution is to bring them (and others) back. They will bring their children with them and our schools will start to regain student population.

Happy Autumn everyone.

More BS from Mayor Dumbness. No one applauded any of your ideas, (not plans) because not only are they not well thought out, not only do you have no idea on how the budget works, but you still cannot and will not answer basic questions. For example :

From what line item will you cut checks to people who buy a home in Warwick?

Do you understand that when someone buys a house someone else has sold a house. Do you understand that if you were to give someone a check for buying a house that it would result in a net negative tax collection? Of course you don't, your a dope.

Do you think that every person coming to Warwick is developing an empty parcel of land?

Have you done any research into how many building permits are issued and what the fiscal ramification is when you put a moratorium on building permits? Of course you havent because you are incapable of performing research.

You have contributed nothing to your community except for providing us with laughter. Tax cheat, drain on the system, dishonesty, etc.. You are the poster boy for the type of people that do not contribute in any positive way to their community.

Shut up and go away.

The schools are being closed because the population of the city is aging and the student enrollment is declining, period.

Schools should have been closed years ago but the school committee lacked the political fortitude to do what needed to be done. Now we are dealing with the ramifications of those poor (or lack of) decisions. Nobody wants "their" school to be closed but the fact of the matter is we have more schools than we need.
