Voice Concerns

Aug 09, 2017

To the Editor:

It has come to my attention that the Little Egg Harbor school board has decided to approve massive salary increases for administrative personnel. This is ridiculous since many school programs, school maintenance issues and staff have been cut due to state funding being decreased by $193,807. 

This is what happens while parents are busy working, chauffeuring their children around, etc. and we leave school issues in what we “believe” are capable board members’ hands. 

I’m sorry I voted “yes” on the last budget, and assure you I will vote “no” the next time around since the board seems to have excess funds.

The next board meeting is Monday, Aug. 21 at 6 p.m. at the Frog Pond Elementary School. Anyone who opposes this agenda, please attend this meeting to voice your concerns. They will only listen and know we are watching if a large number of people attend this most important meeting.

Residents of New Jersey no longer the right to vote on school budgets, that right was taken away several years ago.

It used to be that if residents voted down a budget it would have to go before the municipal government which could propose cuts. But state regulations changed, leaving residents with no say except in the case of special referendums.
