Milford Public Schools superintendent makes case for budget
Parents and teachers packed a public meeting Tuesday night in Milford to discuss a gap between the Board of Finance's proposed budget and what the school district says it needs.
Superintendent of Milford Public Schools Dr. Anna Cutaia made her case to try and persuade the city's alderman to approve her budget, instead of the Board of Finance proposal that is nearly $2 million less.

A number of parents dressed in red to show support for administrators.
"I would happily pay more taxes to have my children go to a good school," said Ryan McConnell.
Parents say their greatest fear is a school will close, forcing the kids to switch schools.
"It's not something any superintendent wants to do," said Cutaia.
The final vote in this budget is expected sometime next month but Ward Willis, who is on the Board of Aldermen, says it's possible there might not be a resolution until June
