Accountability. It’s indispensable for good government. And it’s critical in every school.
As a member of Norwalk’s Board of Education, Steve Colarossi has fought to hold the people who spend our taxdollars and who educate our children accountable. That’s why he’s been unafraid to ask the tough questions of superintendents and other administrators—that’s why he reviewed every line of every budget, questioning the assumptions that caused years of misappropriations and fought to end years of wasteful spending. And that’s also why, when political considerations took center stage in the 2012-2013 budget, Steve Colarossi developed an alternative kids’ first budget plan, and was the lone voice to support the programs needed by our most vulnerable students.
As a probation officer, Andres Roman has dedicated his professional life to helping his clients become accountable for the mistakes they’ve made, guiding them to lead productive lives. A dad to two young boys, Andres has set an example for them through his extensive community involvement and military service.
Steve Colarossi and Andres Roman appreciate that an accountable school department is one that uses our taxpayer dollars to provide the best possible education for all of Norwalk’s children.
