What Does the District Have to Hide? PART II WITH CORRECTION

This year is very special.  It is the first year people in our district will be able to vote to reject the SAU budget. It is the first year the SAU budget will have to stand up to voter scrutiny. Because this year is so special and so much is on the line for the SAU and its budget, the SAU is keeping some sensitive information out of the public eye; namely, what it pays to each of its employees.

Salary figures are public information subject to the Right to Know law. Mr. Jorge Mesa-Tejada an eagle-eyed Hampstead resident, requested the salaries of all the SAU staff as is normally published in the SAU’s  proposed budget information package.  This year the salary information was missing.  Mr. Mesa-Jeada has made numerous requests to the SAU for this information.  To date, they have not provided it, making me now keenly interested to see it, as you should be, too.

Just so you know, the SAU budget is up 10%.  Timberlane’s SAU bill is up 10.66%.

[CORRECTION: IN A PREVIOUS VERSION OF THIS POSTING I SAID THE SAU BUDGET CAN BE CHANGED AT DELIBERATIVE. THIS WAS AN ERROR. I FAILED TO REVIEW RSA 94:C PART b. APOLOGIES TO MY READERS. THE SAU BUDGET CANNOT BE CHANGED AT DELIBERATIVE.]
