HCDE BOE And Fleecing Of The Taxpayers

Wednesday, July 15, 2020

It appears that the HCDE Board of Education has determined that extending the contract for Dr. Johnson and given a 2.5 percent pay raise to the teachers is a good idea when people are out of work and struggling to even pay for rent and food. 

I find it appalling that we as taxpayers have to agree to contract extensions which could have waited until the current crisis was over but as the Democrats say "Don't let a good crisis go to waste".   

I guess we need more conservatives on the HCDE BOE?
