It’s as easy as ABC…vote NO….. 1

Residents of Region One who are about to vote Thursday on the latest incarnation of the budget, please read the story in this mornings Republican-American….here is a line from that story that tells you why the budget should again be defeated……

“There also were objections raised to the central office ad­ministrators getting three ­year contracts with 2 percent raises for each of those three years. At the board meeting, members voted to ask the su­perintendent, assistant su­perintendent and business manager to reopen negotia­tions. A meeting is being scheduled with the All Board Chairmen Committee next week to discuss reopening the contracts. That advisory group makes recommenda­tions to the Region 1 Board of Education on administrative contract matters”

Note the item …”A meeting is being scheduled with the All Board Chairmen Committee next week to discuss reopening the contracts”…

You would have thought that with the public, and board asking for the administration contracts to be re-opened, that the ABC group would have acted with some speed..but NO! They figure, along with the administration, let’s wait till AFTER the next vote…if the budget passes, we won’t have to deal with this issue.

This is a slap in the face to voters, residents, and the board, the situation demanded some sort of immediate action from the ABC, but no, they kicked the can down the road, figuring the problem might go away. The Region One BOE scheduled a special session, why did the ABC not do the same? Shame on them, this is reason enough to defeat the budget one more time itself to show them WE ARE SERIOUS AND WE WANT ACTION.no (1)
