Carmelo Garcia sends thanks

4/17/2008:

A message from Carmelo Garcia after this weeks Board of Education election:

carmelo-garcia-hoboken-board-of-ed.jpg“I wanted to take this opportunity to thank Hoboken residents for coming out and showing their support for public education by electing good, committed leaders! I believe this turn out unites all of Hoboken old and new! To charecterize this election as a b&r versus young professionals or new comers is inaccurate and devisive! I wholeheartedly beleive that as the top vote getter we had many parents, taxpayers and young professionals come out in support of my candidacy and my running mates! I appreciate democracy at its best especially when the people lead at the polls and prove we are the agents of change!We selected a course of progress and we’re sticking to it, “this victory belongs to our students, parents, taxpayers and especially our teachers”. We have much work ahead of us, our re-organization, working with our new superintendent and trust me we will provide our children with a world class education! We plan to make sure that a strategic financial management plan is prepared to reduce our per pupil cost and mandate fiscal accountability. Once again I thank you on behalf of myself, Frances Rhodes-Kearns and Phil Defalco. Thank you Hoboken for placing our children first and now we must continue serving our students.”

It is Hoboken. How else do you explain half the waste that goes on in this town?

I like that we spend a million a year on transportation. Thats an awful lot of school bus rides in a town a mile square……

SPMom – the budget has not “basically stayed the same”. Please open it up and look at it – Matt posted a link. It is going up millions of dollars year after year.

And if you look at the cummulative amount of waste over the last decade or so, I bet that would have gone a long way towards paying for a new school building (or remodeling an existing one).
