Subject: Re: TRSB meeting on 6/5/2014
Thank you very much for your time and the consideration you have given to me. I admit I am a simple, old man…. nothing fancy here. And I realize that we can’t continue to meet like this. I know you have a lot on your plate.
Please allow me to set up two scenarios so that even an old gentleman like myself will understand these issues.
1) DBJ policy says that any transfer of funds exceeding $5000 between budget lines requires the TRSB to give it’s approval beforehand. Question: Has there been any transfers over $5000 between budget lines without the prior approval of the TRSB? All I am asking for is a plain and simple ‘ Yes’ or ‘No’.
2) NH RSA’s prohibit spending for any purpose for which no appropriation has been made. Question (yes or no) Has there been any spending or any incurring of liability where line items have no budget appropriation-they are zero-funded in the budget?
As you can see, I am a plain meat and potatoes a simple yes or no type of guy. Thank you for taking the time to answer these two questions and I wish you a fantastic summer.

It appears as if you simply do not understand our policy, nor do you understand the RSA, and therefore your questions do not make sense. We have not violated policy or RSA.
