I wonder where Mr. Gambino was last night? He was so concerned for the state of affairs at the school that he chose to run for the Board. Yet at one of the most important Board meetings of the year and he's not there? Where are all his fresh ideas and new approaches to dealing with budget issues? Just because he didn't make Board doesn't mean they wouldn't still be welcome. What a joke!

No mabey not but look at the amount of people it brings in. That alone is a plus.

I would have no way to quantify the money it creates in excellent jobs for your community members and thousands of students from out the area coming here to spend money at stores and businesses in Fredonia that is from out of the area (not money made here and spent here). These things do not happen in Brocton and rarely if ever trickle down to our town and village.

You are absolutely correct. The point I was making was that it is a huge piece of property that is off the tax roll. there should be some sort of pilot program for all these tax exempt properties in every community, quite a few places suffer because of them.

Agreed....

I feel whatever formula has been in place is no longer appropriate or meeting the needs of districts in a meaningful and fiscally responsible way.

I have received bulletins indicating that the Obama plan calls to create an increase in gasoline prices with a goal of as much as $9.00 per gallon...Will these distant schools then be fiscally responsible in those circumstances?

I would initially say that the gas price is boloney but this same contact told me over 6 months prior to it hitting the mainstream news that they wanted to tax farmers for letting cows live and produce "emmissions" and I thought that was a line of "bull" until it was actually on the news...

I am thinking stay put and keep my eyes and ears open and watch the show...

I know jeff better than anyone else. I know what a con artist he is. HE IS SCUM! This so call nice guy is not to be trusted. For instance, when his dad was diagnosed with cancer, he took it upon himself to run his business which was located out of Silver Creek at the time. Jeff owned the bar in Fredonia at the time, which wasn't doing so great. Mr nice guy was suppose to help his dad run the business until he was able to come back to work. Oh yeah! he helped him alright. He took his check book and his credit and ran the business to the ground. He used the credit card to purchase a vehicle then turn around and sold it for cash and also paid his own personal expenses with his dads small profit. He put them so far in debt, that he had to file bankruptcy. He never paid them back for stealing their money. People do not trust him to handle your money. You will regret it.

didn't Jack pay one of the female principals a monthly bonus for driving back and forth to BCS the last year he was in charge? How come that was never looked into??? Did the female principal pay income taxes on that money???

Hey, if you need an example of what happens in a merged district, here is what Chautauqua Lake has for their stats...
Chautauqua Lake is an anomaly for a school its size it has a student population of around 800. There, spending per pupil stands at $22,000. The school gets $5,800 per student in state aid. And the budget voters will pass judgment on Tuesday carries a charge to property owners of $11,000 per student.
$11,000/student!!! How do you like those numbers...? This could be Brocton + Fredonia...
This community will be making a whole lot of noise if the issue continues to be forced on us...even if it has to be on the state level, make the tv news or any other sort of noise to affirm that NO, we are done...we are going to keep the status quo.
And...one of the top rated schools in the area. Sometimes it's not just about the almighty dollar.

Teachers not at the ridiculous top pay of 85 thousand plus get double raises every year, they get a step, plus a percentage raise, the teachers pay is the real problem with the School budget, I do not believe that any other State in the Union comes close to what teachers in NYS make. So do NYS students rank at the top?----NO they do not, higher pay does not make better teachers, it just makes more the tax payers have to pay because of greedy unions. The support staff at most Schools get very low pay, some with no health insurance, but those are the ones they cut first. People in this area cannot afford to pay teachers 85 thousand dollars for a little over 180 days of work. Take a teacher at top pay of $85,000 divide by, say 185 days it comes out to $459.45 a day, nobody is worth that much!
I wouldn't get out of bed for $495.45/day. What is that,$57 and hour!?!
