Merger prediction from fb

Keeler had Dr. Rick Timbs on this morning who did an independent analysis of the merger plans and the financial state of both school districts. He suggested, based on the numbers at both districts alone...and the mandates required by NYS and the 8 million dollars the two schools have lost in state aid in the last 3 years alone...that the only way these schools can survive without the merger, is to have double digit tax increases for the next 10 years. That means people will have to vote to over ride the tax cap every year by a majority vote of 60%. If they fail to do so, the schools will collapse financially. Meaning, a number of bad things could happen including the possibility of the state coming in and taking over. Besides this, he asked how we can continue to allow our students in both Ilion and Mohawk to receive a substandard education. How will they be able to compete in the job world?

More crap and scare tactics. He is Keelers' father in law. Keeler is pro merger and he is using Dad to help sell the merger. If Keeler gave one shit about all this then tell me why he is sending his kids to new hartford with wife who teaches there? After they merge and suddenly we become the top performing school in central ny will bill then allow his kids to go to school in ilion where he lives? I doubt it. Come on Bill answer that question! Put your money where so fat mouth is.
