Come on Marcus, the Petuccis, Donna Cool, Mz Williams, any of the Deludes...where's your solutions to the 1.3m shortfall we are facing in Herkimer? Which sports are you cutting? Which music programs ? which staff are being laid off? Or are you too chicken to now stand up and be seen ?

1) Vote was held , Merge voted down

2) No back up plan

3) Can't talk now, we are in executive session

4) Are suggesting the public no longer has a voice and should waive their right to vote?

5) It's not incumbent upon the people who voted "no "to give our elected officials ideas or suggestions.They are the ones who have failed us. If you believe your ideas are no longer valid, perhaps it's time to start submitting resignations.

Hey Mary Beth will you please get over yourself and knock it off. This is over and done and everyone is sick if your complaining and whining. Stop putting names on here just because they didn't do what you want Cry Baby.

teacher benefits have them contribute...there your answer

teacher evaluations we rate 388 out of 430 get rid ofthe dead weight sponging off us for that full medical and benefit package

immediate pay freeze

And teachers and admins if this is truly about the kids why wont you take a pay cut..I dont mind giving up something a slight rise in taxes...But heres the deal the graduation rates and teaching are poor they dont deserve what the are now recieving

Here's an idea. How about those on the school board who gave up on Herkimer and who did not want to keep the school as Herkimer step down and let those who want to fight for the school take over. It's obvious the school board doesn't care anymore. They wouldn't have been so eager to merge if they still cared about Herkimer. Let us who led the no-merger movement have a position of authority so we can actually do something about it. Instead of bickering use your energy to do something productive. Either that or resign. Which will it be. As long as your demoralized aszes are taking up the school board chairs there is nothing we CAN do. Resign and then we can fill those chairs and do what needs to be done.

Oh, and at least we don't use the school as our own personal welfare system, collecting checks and benefits and expecting more and more each and every year. If the school can afford it that would be fine I suppose, but the fact is it can't support these past habbits anymore. And at least we weren't planning on getting a big raise, jobs for relatives, and higher social status once the merger went through. Sorry to have shattered your personal hopes and dreams. We actually think of the children rather than think of our own personal benefit at the expense of the school district's bank account. If you feel insulted with these words, then good, because you have a chance to show that you care about the children by increasing your portion of benefit premiums and taking a slight paycut for the children's benefit. At least show some humanity and don't seek to cut only the programs that are for the kids without first cutting some of your own. The greed shows and it's written all over. Everyone can see it.

So if there is nothing more you can do for the school, step down. The yes voters were beat by 15%. That's by no means a small margin. So stop bitching and complaining and start working on the solution that you need to work on based on what the voters want. You put all your eggs in the merger basket when you should have had plan B and maybe even plan C. Help the school and get to work, or resign and let someone who cares take over your position. Stop spending all your energy on Topix, use it on the board table instead.

Whoever you are, like most people don't already know, just shut up! You sound like a poor sport 2 year old that didn't win a game. Grow up, shut up, and most important just sell your damn house and go away! No one wants you here. Have a nice day

It's so easy to place blame when you are unwilling to give up anything for yourself, yet expect the kids' things to be taken away so that you can continue with your gilded paychecks and benefits packages. There is something wrong with that. This time around everyone should share the burden. Teachers, administrators, unions, taxpayers, and then if still necessary, the kids. But don't point the finger at just one of these mentioned groups and ask them to give something up without anyone else giving something up as well. What is wrong with that. Greedy bastrds.

And I will laugh and point right back at you because your whole merger was about what staff/faculty member would benefit most and who could receive the most money! That is all it came down to was money for the greedy admin well half this damn area is on welfare. Then sit there and say the merger was for the kids! You guys are pieces of work! Raises and paychecks is what it is about. Now find your real estate agent and get the fk out of here before you get run out!
