There are ways that Central York could cut spending right now.

In the current budget year the district is hiring a Human Resources Director, a position that must be costing over 50-thousand dollars a year for sure.

And then there's that Director of Communications position that Julie Randall Romig now holds and costs taxpayers another 50-thousand plus.

Lets hope the taxpayers get a voice on this school board sometime soon.

With the possibility of Harley Davidson's property tax revenue disappearing fiscal responsibility is essential at this point.

The incumbents are too tied to the administration and many have family members who have jobs or have gotten jobs working for the school district.

The teachers union is blackballing non-incumbents like Gregory Lewis, William Wagner and Howard Myers because they are concerned about taxes and spending.

I received an email from one of the board members over the weekend, after I had emailed them all telling them I will do whatever it takes to get them all out of office.
He was trying to justify his existence. It didn't work.
The biggest thing that sticks in my mind is a 6 million freakin' dollar INDOOR SWIMMNG POOL. My g*d, what a bunch of morons.

Dollars and sense should dictate how people vote for the Central, Dallastown, York City school boards etc.

The dollars are disappearing with pay cuts and job losses.

Now its time for some common sense to prevail.

I'm also thinking that one of their prime motivator's for delaying the vote is the election.

Dump 'em all and let's start over.

Everyone needs to quit complaining. It's funny how everyone wants their district to provide the best opportunities for their kids, yet nobody wants to pay for it. You can't have it both ways.

In general, things are getting more expensive (food, utilities, cost of living/salaries, etc.). Because of that, of course, operating budgets will require more money, which means taxes will rise by default. It's economics people.

I don't complain, but I do demand some honesty and integrity from elected officials.

Central York's School Board is bought and paid for by the administration because most of its members have family who have jobs or have gotten jobs from the school district.

Its taxation without representation.

That's why all these buildings get built and taxes have to go up to pay for them.

Most of the cost of education is about salaries and benefits.

Everyone at Central from Dr. Michael Snell on down is under some contract that gives them automatic pay raises every July 1st.

Meanwhile taxpayers take pay cuts and lose their jobs.

The reality of our current "economics people" is that it is TANKING!
When the "malls" close you will expect the property owners to provide THAT "hanging out" opportunity in the schools...
WAKE UP! NO NEW TAXES!!! Vote the incumbents in ALL school districts OUT!
