Yeah right, Gardener judges people on merit. You have to be kidding. I bet even his pal Jamie Wolgemuth is having a hard time defending Gardener's actions as king, oops I mean president.
Hey Deb,
My goodness you are so full up with words of wisdom. Impressive. Do you have a crush on Ed or are you still carrying a torch for one of the former members and you're just frustrated?
Will you be at the meeting on Monday?

Can someone explain to me how they go from a $900,000 deficit to $1 million surplus? I know the teachers "had" to give up their raise but where does the almost $2 million swing come about. I understand there was NO discussion during the public meeting concerning this issue and yet they are going to raise the taxes 3 mills! I guess the public doesn't desrve an explanation.(I don't want to hear it was discussed in committee ... maybe some people have to work @ 5:00) This board is just the same as the last if not WORSE!
All the executive session before and after their meetings they sure must have a lot of problems.
I don't think ANYONE knows what they are talking about! Now the business manager doesn't know exactly how much the teachers pay freeze is going to save the district. PLEASE she better know! But she also made the comment to the reporter about having a $1 million surplus but claimed the reporter took it wrong. Does she know what she is doing or can't she talk to a reporter? I am willing to bet at the end of next year the district will have more of a surplus then the business manager is now claiming. I guess time will tell.

"does she know what she's doing?"
Good question.
She is one of the highest paid business manager's of the 6 county school
districts and has nothing more than a high school diploma and the departing school board member approved a 5 year contract for her before they left office. She's there for 3 more years.
Does she know what she's doing?
Send her a RTK request for financial information and see for yourself.

She was terminated as the business manager at Northern Lebanon SD dist before coming to Elco. Of coarse no one wants to talk about that?
Elco is the last stop flunky shop.
The SD who will pay more for less.
The Elco motto is Expect Excellence. How ridiculous is that?

Lets face it Nilsen is a "lame duck" and is no longer calling the shots this is the boards call all the way. They are playing games and the fund balance will show in a year from now. This will show the kind of ganes this board is playing.

Just ran across this now. Thank you John, for your kind and true words, and yes, my father was truly all about football. He has been dead for 15 years now, so this Fred Poorman character from Lebanon is a fraud.
