I would like to know why many of Billerica's retiring school superintendents and apparently many other people within the town knew about this little criminal enterprise -- yet, nothing was ever done about it? Why did the school committee allowed Calabrese to empty our the school side of the rainy day account during his last Town Meeting before retiring -- funneling hundreds of thousands of Billerica taxpayers money to what we now know to be a potential criminal enterprise. Why do we have a school committee member working for that enterprise? What about the transportation contracts and our school committee representative that appears to be on the receiving end of the dollars? What about the ability to count civil service time while working for a separate/private not-for-profit. It seems that many in Billerica Town government new about this -- but, looked the other way. Perhaps because they are involved in other scams to collect two paychecks while at the same time bolstering up their civil service retirement.
