Every Red Clay board memeber and local legislators at risk of losing seats!

School realignment plan calls for property tax changes  Matthew Albright, The News Journal

“Among a slew of proposals, the commission also wants the state to give the Red Clay School District about $6 million and temporary authority to bump up property taxes. The goal is to bolster the district so  it can absorb Wilmington students and schools currently served by the Christina School District.”

“A property tax reassessment would also help Red Clay handle the influx of new students, the report says. Until that happens, the commission wants to give the Red Clay School Board authority to make small increases to its property tax rate without getting input from voters.”

You know damn well a temporary $$$$ cash infusion will be permanent and reassessment of property will set the stage to unseat “every” legislator serving  within Red Clay’s boundries.

If we’re going to FUCK with the way we fund traditional schools than we need to fund them like Votechs! Let the legislators set the property rates like they do with votechs.

God help the senior citizens living on fixed income and the impact on local businesses will cost JOBS!

Perhaps we need teachers and administrators to start paying their fari share in healthcare cost! Red Clay’s adminstrators receive a rasie every year while employees in the private sector goes 3-4 years without a raise. And perhaps we need to end healthcare coverage for state legisalators. They all act like volunteers serving the community and yet it a big pay day for many with all the extra $$$$$$$ serving on committees.

Red Clay school board elections coming May 2016 and I think we need a sacriifical lamb to let other board members they are next! EACH AND EVERYONE!

    Oh sweet baby Chuy! Kilroy hits the Babe Ruth slam of the week. Not only are health care costs a much better deal for state employees than for private sector employees.
    Look at DB pension costs with the state expense north of 20% of payroll. That is double the private sector rate, if they have a DB pension at all (most don’t). And NO ONE in the private sector has the entitlement of “step changes” based only on longevity and education while these guaranteed “survivor” raises are devoid of a merit component.

    People working (who worked) for Ashland, AstraZeneca, BMS, Chemours, Dupont, Evraz, GM, Mopar and others — look at the state system and shake their heads. And here we have Crazy Uncle Johnny K talking abut how he will use state IT assets any way he darned well pleases. Hubris Unhinged.

    The voter revolution is upon us. Once the napenthe wears off.

    • On this issue we can agree Publius. Why should state employees pay less for insurance than non-state? Granted, the pool in the insurance group is much bigger than many private companies in Delaware, but this is costing taxpayers a lot of money to pay for someone else’s cheaper insurance rates while we are paying more. In what world does that make sense?

  2. Property taxes coming to a neighborhood near you soon. Communities have no more home equity to be taken by the education industry. They will not stop until everyone is taxes out of their homes except them.

    Kilroy,

    Which seats on the Red Clay board are up for election in 2016, and who do you think should run? If voters want to DQ an incumbent, what should their message be? If an incumbent wants to retain their seat, what should that message be? I’m trying to get bumper stickers lined up, so please suggest short messages. And please don’t say “It’s for the kids”.

  4. Every RCCSD resident should be headed to the next board MTG with pitchforks to skewer a board that obviously ignored its residents. The acceptance of the CSD annex alone should have been a district vote.

      M Ryder is on task. He gave a bumper sticker slogan. The slogan will take Arial Narrow font and a big inhale to fit between the shoulders, but we can work with this. The Midnight Rider rides again …

      “I WILL VOTE, SO U DONT HAVE TO. NOW GO AWAY.”

      Too long for many bumper stickers. With appropriate understory, and appropriate image-graphics, this … excuse me … dog might hunt.

      Shorter still:

      “JOIN IN .. VOTE ”

      This one leverges intrinsic biases based on bonhomie, photo, and more. Such biases have been part of the electoral process since the time of the Founding Fathers. Probaby OK>

      Best Practice:
      “JOIN IN .. VOTE
