It has not been disclosed how much Mr. Cornell will be paid as the next Superintendent of Hamburg, but surely it will be more than the big fat salaries bestowed upon Colleen Kaney, Barbara Sporaz and Brent Jordan. All three individuals are Hamburg Central Administrators, and all were given new titles and new pay grades by former Hamburg Superintendent Dick Jetter, just days before his mask was pull off for all to see the crazy man beneath.
These individuals were given three year contracts and salaries as follows:
- Colleen Kaney: (14-15) $122,000, (15-16) $123,000, (16-17) $124,000
- Barbara Sporaz: (14-15) $125,000, (15-16) $126,000, (16-17) $127,000
- Brent Jordan: (14-15) $110,000, (15-16) $111,000, (16-17) $112,000
It is hoped for the sake of the Hamburg taxpayer, that the school board did not use the services of Mr. Andrew Freedman of Hodgson Russ to negotiate with Mr. Cornell. It was the legal art of Mr. Freedman, allegedly a close personal friend of Dick Jetter, that saddled the Hamburg taxpayer with the Jetter contract and contract buy-out. One would hope that given the beating the district took in the Dick Jetter drama that Mr. Freedman et.al were sent packing. As the old saying goes, "fool me once shame on you, fool me twice, shame on me". Here is hoping the Hamburg School Board learned the lessons about blood sucking lawyers.
Welcome to Hamburg Central School District Mr. Cornell, you will officially be entering the twilight zone.
