All I can say is shame on you and choke on your ego ! When leaders have no integrity their followers have no leader!
After demolition of the near 3-million-square-foot facility, the Boxwood Road plant will be home to a business, fulfillment and distribution campus spread across four buildings with a smaller footprint than the previous structure.
Meantime back in the ranch Cowboy Merv is keeping the $$ card close to his chest. No one is talking about the property reassessment that lowers the value of this property whereas it would low school taxes to be paid, Who know what the property value will be after the demolition. But in the interim Red Clay will see less property taxes being paid from this property.
For Fiscal Year 07/01/2017 – 06/30/2018 TOTAL SCHOOL DISTRICT TAXES DUE 2,015,608.27
RED CLAY 38913100 2.31400 / 100 $900,449.13
NCC VOCATIONAL 38913100 0.16030 /100 $62,377.70
Total Current Tax $962,826.83
Prior Balance $907,570.23
TOTAL SCHOOL DISTRICT TAXES DUE $ 2,015,608.27
7/25/17 tax bill appears to be based on assessment value of 38913100 and this appears to be current assessment value:
At 9,800.200.00 x last year’s 2.314 per 100.00 assessment this would equal $227,235.00 for Red Clay in contrast to $900,449.13 = 673,214.13 LESS in Red Clay School Tax. And this will be less once plant is demolished.
Now I am no CPA but this what I see. But at the end of the day, there is an impact in Red Clay school taxes that will have to be made up through another referendum shifting the burden on others. The sad part of all this is, Merv is hiding in the corner like a scared mouse. Red Clay taxpayers need clarity on this issue and its impact.
I understands extracurricular school activities help shape students as individuals beyond classroom academics. However, with teachers being underpaid and deficiencies in material needs of the classroom the time has come to question what $$ is the priority of needs?
Spit is out! Should we need to consider cutting after school extracurricular ?
I understand the issues behind the teacher strikes around the country. However, its having a negative impact on students currently in school. What right do teachers in these states have making current students sacrificial lambs for the better of the future of education in their state?
To the question of teacher compensation. I don’t see anywhere where people were rounded up and forced to work in public education. Obviously the choice was made by educated adults. Don’t get me wrong boy who can’t see his reflection in the mirror. But teachers public and non-public are valued members of society and I support traditional public education. But honestly, if there is money to be found and raised we need to use it to support and increase the needs of our law enforcement. Then there is this question, should teachers be paid more than social-workers?
As far as looking at increasing public school funding in Delaware the time has come to fund all traditional public school like how Delaware votech schools are, The state legislators set the local tax-rates for votech schools. This is ground zero for the making positive changes in Public school funding. We need teachers in the classrooms teaching and legislators that have their backs. When we have legislators like Rep Paul Baumbach burning so much energy trashing President Trump while at the same time defending his support for former Governor Jack Markell who single handily upended Delaware public education sits around with his thumb up is ass on Delaware school funding we’ll never be able to address the problem.
Delaware needs to improve on the issues we’re seeing around the country is being held hostage by education labor leaders who spend more time on broad political rather than investing himself in a job that he is being “PAID” to do. I have the theory that to reform a nation we must do it state by state with common goals. Children who are undeserved is all areas of needs is a result of failed adults.
YeP ! Kilroy is calling it ! Giuliani to replace Jeff Sessions as United States Attorney General .
There I was, Saturday kicking back in my beach chair at Rehoboth Beach Delaware when a bottle with message in it washed ashore. The message said, a certain North Carolina congressional district (D) is funneling $$$$ to “one” of the three candidates running for U.S Congress. After reading the message, I scratched my head and said, if this happened before party endorsement or primary election wouldn’t it be illegal? Then I thought, be a hard thing to prove. On the back the message it said, “see next bottle”.
I support certain aspects of gun law legislation but not changes to the 2nd Amendment. But of course, if I speak-out in defense of preserving the 2nd Amendment Liberals will claim I am not for protecting children.
I’ve come to the conclusion, far left democrats want to disarm American. So, I’ll lose a couple of friends when I tell those legislators who support changes to the 2nd Amendment to go fuck themselves.
