Organisciak and the rest of the school board are out of their minds. And don’t think that they didn’t have their hand in the sudden “technical interruption” that surprisingly cut-off live streaming while one of New Rochelle’s residents was giving it to them good.
But everyone shouldn’t be surprised as the Board of Education always tries to censor taxpayers.
This meeting was a strange one. Surprisingly the main issue was about busing, how ridicules. It’s really not about busing; it’s about necessary budget cuts vs. unnecessary budget cuts.
Why is it necessary that supervisors get salary increases?
Why is it necessary that supervisors & department heads have unlimited expense budgets?
Why is it necessary that executives & supervisors are assigned city vehicles?
Why is it necessary that the Board of Education continues paying overtime to maintenance employees?
Many corporations around the world have been affected by the economic downturn and many owners of these corporations have implemented cutbacks starting from the top. There are actually many CEOs that have stopped paying themselves so that they can keep employees that desperately need their jobs in order to live. The people of New Rochelle aren’t asking for such extremes.
CUTS NEED to be made AT THE TOP!!!
All Executive level personnel should have a 10% reduction in salary.
Reduce the number of assistant superintendents from 4 to 2.
Cap monthly expenses of all executive level personnel.
Revoke all city issued vehicles from executive and supervisory officials.
Implement salary freeze.
Implement a school tax onto residential renters that have children within the New Rochelle school system.
Create a volunteer committee designated to apply for grants, both public & private, to increase funding for special programs for students.
Simple money saving cuts and revenue boosters such as these will reduce layoffs, reduce the elimination of vital programs offered to students, keep busing, and eliminate the need of tax increases.
Think these few suggestions over and let the Department of Education know what you think of their unrealistic & insane budget proposal.
