Budget

Be prepared for this one. Dr. Andrejko is going to present another over-the-top budget. I bet it's over $300 for the average homeowner, not the "under $200" that some have suggested. It's going to be a very interesting meeting.

Vote all the directors out and put in new ones. Even if you think they are OK.

People just keep voting the same people in no matter what. It's the same with Paul Clymer.

Just remember, part of the increase in taxes is to fund the increased teachers' pension that Paul Clymer voted for!

Using your logic, shouldn't we work to replace the school board members who keep raising our taxes to provide salaries to the professional staff that are the 9th highest in the state and on which the pension contributions from the taxpayers are based?

Those same QCSD Board members and administration are planning on wage increases rather than demanding give-backs duing the upcoming contract negotiations.

Under the 2010-11 proposed budget, the tax rate would increase by 11.51 mills, or from 129.5 mills to 141.01 mills, an 8.89 percent increase.

The increase also includes new band uniforms and instruments AND A NEW PROGRAM to provide a laptop for all incoming freshmen who choose not to bring their own to school.

If Qtwn replaced all of our teachers with non-union teachers, what is our continuing requirement to the union pension?
