I talked about this in my prior post.
This was the proposal to give the Superintendent, William Lander, a means to accrue sick pay (up to 30 days) though this was not in the 3 year contract that he, amazingly, managed to finagle through this dysfunctional board.
I want you to watch exactly what happens. It starts at the 1:32 mark (1 hour 32 minutes into the video).
The issue here, as Steve Miller, repeatedly points out is very basic and simple.
The Superintendent, William Lander, extracted an unprecedented 3 year contract from this Board. This sick pay benefit was NOT in that contract. Lander still has 2 years left of his contract.
So what Steve Miller is saying makes so much sense. Lander did not negotiate this as part of his contract. Now he is coming back, through the back door, with AN ADDITION to the contract.
Now as I have said before Lander owns this Board!
That even comes up. The Board won’t ask Lander to leave the room while they discuss his benefits!
This board is dysfunctional.
Also watch and notice that at least 2 members have GREAT DIFFICULTY trying to figure out how this addendum to the contract can be incorporated once the remainder of this existing contract has run out in 2 years.
This is the problem of having amateurs controlling multi million dollar public funds.
Two of the members, from what is in the public record, appear to have issues managing their own finances. But, they monkey around with public funds.
Watch how the voting proceeds. Watch WHO seconded Terri’s, immediate, without discussion, motion to APPROVE this bonus to Lander.
This board has to be held accountable at some point.
