Candyman handing out candy to the unions
Jetter was quoted in the Buffalo News as stating, “That’s the bad news: You’re kind of waiting for Santa Claus to stop by, and when he doesn’t show up for Christmas, you’re disappointed,” he said.
Richie, there is no Santa Claus nor magic buses.
Unbelievably you are at the helm of a $60 million dollar enterprise financed by taxpayer dollars, not yours. The school board made a colossal error appointing you in the first instance, you have NO experience and are seeming making things up as you go along. Public sector entities have a responsibility to the public and those that they serve. Hamburg School District is not the place for you to promise the moon to special interests just so you can get the job by popular opinion.
As interim superintendent and alleged candidate in the selection process for permanent superintendent, one might ask Richie how much experience he has in developing budgets? Or, perhaps one might take a gander at his academic training to determine if he has taken a simple accounting or finance course.
So, Boars of Education listen closely as Richie sells you a bag of candy. See through this young persons inexperience and irresponsibility. Hamburg needs a wise superintendent, not the candy man.
Hamburg Boars of Education do the right thing. With Governor Cuomo's promise for increase in pre-kindergarten, perhaps the best position for Richie Jetter would be teaching the little ones how to tie a shoe. He will shine with the little tikes telling tall tales of magic buses and men in red suits who deliver presents.
The Hamburg Board has a fiduciary responsibility to the taxpayers of Hamburg.
Jetter was further quoted in the Buffalo News as saying, “the good news is that we’re going to get through this. I’m confident we will be OK in Hamburg, to not have devastation hit our district.” Perhaps in light of the increase in salaries he has promised the unions and the decrease in state aid, one might ask Richie to illuminate his remarks as it seems impossible to avoid devastation when school expenditures exceed revenues.
