As I heard the situation, the present turf survived it's life expectancy and perhaps is out of its warranty period and could be a hazard.

posted to express your displeasure with a $355 K expense which IMO is prudent and justified. Why let a multimillion $$$ football stadium go unused or be a hazard to the players and band members because of a reluctance to upgrade. The stadium was built about 1980 and this is not the first replacement of the turf.

You were silent when the City and Teachers' union controlled board was pushing for years for three new schools (about $60 million) which is now proven as not needed.

The previous Cornell schools was replaced with a palace that is too extravagant and expensive. Where were you on that one?

Some say that the six grade academy will cost about $13 million.
I believe that citizens of MASD should petition and demand a forensic investigation of the entire building programs including the PPM firm that ripped off MASD with an outrageous upfront payment.

Do you thing the abrupt departure of two superintendents were related to building programs management? It is strange that both accepted eye opening salary reductions to leave MASD. That is why the PA Auditor General should be contacted to conduct a forensic audit of the building programs.

I smell something fishy and it is not the Renzie duck pond.

No I think they should spend $1,355,000 at least. That will create enough jobs and grease to gather up at lease 500 much needed machine votes.

Politics and its cover ups trumps education, graduates, integrity, Shelly type justice, and law enforcement including absence of drug busts.

IMO they should cancel the football turf and reserve the $355K and a lot more for the three Ms. D cash settlements. The civil and federal actions are still lurking in the minds of the $$legal team$$.

I heard Ms. D wants a cool million coming her way, attorney fees and processing of all court documentation and costs are a separate pay check. One million clear and tax free would make Ms. D a happy camper, now does she want her job back?, stay tuned !

The ball is in MASD court !! As time goes on the settlement goes up each and every day plus interest...Remember interest rates were a lot higher years ago!!!

If MASD screwed up the bogus case, I think they will screw up the settlement and that will cost the taxpayers even more.

Convert MASD to a Propel Mega School and remove the board and fire the administrators who screwed up the Ms. D kangaroo case that failed.
