Reader Mail: School Budget Fat

6/9/2008:

This morning, a Hoboken411 reader sent in this sweet employment contract for our School Business Administrator, courtesy of you, the Hoboken tax-payer.

One reason behind the bloated budget

“Hi, 411:

Thought I’d pass along a copy of the school business administrator’s contract, which is up for renewal at Tuesday’s school board meeting. Brian Buckley now gets $145,000 and no doubt they’ll vote him a 5% raise. He also gets seven days off for a death in the family, including aunts and uncles, and 15 sick days. I guess that’s standard throughout the district. There’s also an assistant school business administrator. No wonder it’s costing us $25,000 per student!”

Of course, a gas tax holiday makes all the sense in the world. How is it Mighty McCain the economics know it all doesn’t understand this?

FAIL.

“This looks like a fairly standard BA contract. Salary and benefits package are inline with the rest of the State.”

Yes, this looks like a standard Sopranos approved layaway plan. Lay away all those “never used” days for a nice payout.

Only in Joisey baby, only in Joisey.

Now we know why our state is the laughingstock of the nation. But what the hey, Praise Obama.

They are all idiots, true, but the voters who keep sending them back to Washington aren’t much better. :roll:[/quote]

And the 18 year old kids supporting “he who must not be named” are even bigger idiots, and their parents who raised them and are easily are old enough to remember the gas lines, double digit inflation, interest & unemployment rates are the biggest idiots.[/quote]
I can’t decide between Obamassiah and Obama Christ, Superstar. Either way, I agree with you 100%
