To the Editor,
The Educrats control the process. Our BOE, the Administration, the Unions and PTA cheerleaders run the show. They certainly have not earned the trust of the taxpayers. In all the years I have been observing, have there been any permanent wage freezes or reductions as experienced in the private sector? NEVER. Have the benefit packages been restructured to bring them in line with the private sector? NEVER. Has the BOE gotten any serious concessions from the Unions? NEVER. Have there been any serious sacrifices made by the Public Sector members? NEVER.
Have the taxpayers had to deal with a continually increasing school tax burden? ALWAYS! Do the Scholar, Athlete and Special Needs Parents fight each other for scraps while the Unions and Administration feast? ALWAYS! Is austerity threatened to keep the taxpayers in line? ALWAYS! The end result of this mismanagement will eventually be bankruptcy. Future taxpayers won't stand for paying unfunded pension and retiree healthcare costs. If there are any taxpayers still living here.
Which part of the Educracy is paying for the "Vote Yes" signs? The Unions? The PTA Cheerleaders? Vote NO on the upcoming school budget Tuesday, May 15 to stop this madness.
A Voting Taxpayer,
