Let's blame Price, Shar, and Alexandroff for this !!!!!!!

The financial struggles that have faced the West Mifflin Area School District for the past two years were caused by district officials significantly overspending from 2007 to 2010, according to a special audit performed by the firm Case Sabatini.

The audit, presented at Tuesday's board meeting, put into black and white what some school directors and administrators already knew -- that the district went from having a $4.5 million surplus as of June 30, 2007 to a $3.1 million deficit as of June 30, 2010. School directors ordered the audit in January 2011 when they first learned of the deficit.

The audit covers the school years 2004-05 through 2009-10.

The audit doesn't point to any malfeasance for the overspending. But auditor Ed Gardner implied that district leadership spent without regard to the budget, adding numerous employees to the payroll at a time when enrollment was static.

Mr. Gardner said the district overspent its budget by $4 million in 2008,$5.4 million in 2009 and $2.6 million in 2010. In each of those years, revenues were higher than anticipated but not high enough to cover the overspending, he said.

"I would have considered this to be alarming myself. School districts are not supposed to go over budget," Mr. Gardner said.

He pointed out that the number of employees during the audit years grew from 334 to 446, with the bulk of the hiring taking place between the 2006-07 and 2008-09 school years.

WOW!!!!!!!!WOW!!!!!!! HOLY CRAP!!!!!!!!

If I read correctly we had a surplus of $4.5 million in WMASD before Risha got here and then spend all that money and went thru another $3.3 million??

Lets do the math here........ that adds up to
$7.8 million in debt during the Risha years???????

The old board OK'd all this spending in just 3 years????????
Who was OKing all this spending???
Lets think on this one!!!!!
Who was on the board back then????
You decide..........

Folks! You cant make this stuff up!!!!!!

I think a forensic audit would show exactly where that money went.....I'm all for an forensic audit now to see what scum was skimming off the tax payers.Risha wasnt the only on involved.......someone other than him got kickbacks,,,,,,,

the auditor pretty much blamed Cmar for projecting that the money would be there for them to spend on programs. Why was that not reflected in the article. Was Mary protecting Dennis at Phil's command. Denny was squirming while the blame was dumped on him.

I think the new board should look into cutting the 120 positions that were created during the Risha years and cut them all.

The new board did get rid of some people........of course they had to apy some lawsuits that were much cheaper than paying these clowns to work in WMASD
Just a few examples to starters........
J Gajdos.......income 60K Plus benefits( clown head guard ) stills owes the IRS 45K and 8K for school taxes,etc.( settled for 45K before attorney fees )
R. Tedesco (secretary )....income 45K plus benefits( paid her to get her nails done and hair done on the clock and go mall hopping , settled for 35K before attorney costs)
G. Tedesco ( PPM )( lawsuit pending, lost cause for him becuase of stall tactics ) but would have to wait until 2016 until the new middle school was ready to open..
J Cambest 10K-12K a month to scam tax payers.( no lawsuit )
P Martell .....income 70K Plus benefits Quit ( to chicken to hang around ) He didnt sue! A one time pay out is better than keeping these clowns around for years and years..We are ahead of the game already and in the black. Anymore additions can be added if you know of any....*wink*
