Updated at 8:30 p.m., with all precincts reporting:
Tax levy for cemeteries, additional 0.5-mill levy
Fire and ambulance renewal levy
Let's hope Kent Miller isn't hoodwinked by Mcmahon or Kurt
I agree, at least Senor isn't and will put his foot down! He isn't part of the good ole boys and he is what the school needs!
I'm just glad we have someone capable of us even worrying that he may be "hoodwinked" by those two. We've had sheep following the herders for too long. Kent is a pretty intelligent fellow, with a lot of the right ideas, I hope he does a good job representing the community. I'm confident he will.
Well if you can "follow sheep" that have successfully consolidated buildings in the district, passed a levy, started a highly successful computer school that is financially solvent, cut the number of district employees through attrition, successfully negotiated certified and classified union contracts, negotiated pay freezes with both unions, and led the district to one of the top 11 report cards for student performance in the state………..I would say both Señor and Kent should get in line!
@Slacker, does that qualify Kurt to receive a huge bonus? NO I think NOT!! The teachers should be getting those bonuses, they are the ones who have to work long hours to teach the kids, while Kurt sits behind a desk! I feel all of the money should be divided up between all of the TEACHERS who work hard, not the administration. Honestly what do they do that makes a difference in kids lives? Even the bus garage head and food services director are getting bonuses, they don't ever interact with students, come on people wake up and smell the roses! Be glad we are getting new blood in there, its about time!
@slacker---Im afraid you completely misuderstood my text--or I may have conveyed it in the wrong way. I am in no way being detrimental towards any of the decisions or leadership our current members have given us. I'm just saying that I think Kent was a nice addition to the mix we currently have, and someone (ithink) should be happy that we now have a board member who viable enough to raise that worry.
I'll be happy after seeing what he does in a few months. He (Miller) seems like an intelligent young man, so yes, I am hopeful.
@slacker --- you have no idea what goes on behind closed doors. Eyes will finally be open in the community. Senor & Kent will get on BOARD & I am confident they will STAND and DELIVER for MHS in the right way.
With results like I mentioned in my initial post, who the hell cares what happens behind closed doors?????
A LOT of taxpayers--that's who!
So what specifically are you concerned with Ithink? I gave specifics.................your turn.
