Any of you big Hankin SUPPORTERS want to comment about how you feel about standing up like idiots and giving her a standing ovation while she was boldly lying to your faces about foregoing her raise?

Why is Dr. Herman being allowed to remain in his position? It is now quite apparent that he is way over his head when it comes to the finances of this district. Either this, or he is complicit in the fraud perpetrated by Hankin in regards to her alleged foregoing her salary in the just voted upon budget. Herman stood up in multiple meetings and doted on Hankin for freezing her salary along with the teachers in order to save money for the budget we were to vote on, all to great applause by her clapping seals each time. He then entered this budget into record to be voted on by the Board and then by the Public. Now, the question is: Did he know that her raise was included in this budget? For if he did, he is complicit and guilty of fraud and should be removed immediately, in my opinion. And if he did not know, then he is ill equipped to handle a position that requires a level of financial skills that he apparently does not possess, and he should be removed immediately. In either case, this man has done great damage to his own reputation as well as the reputation of our district and our town as a whole for letting yet another of Hankins schemes to just slide on by on his watch. He needs to be removed from this position of trust because it is obvious that he can no longer be trusted to perforn the tasks that this position requires.

Howie, There is no hope in this town. Sell your house and move to another town. You will be happier, richer and you will most likely have neighbors that say good morning each day and not when they are in the mood. I have put my house up for sale. So far the taxes are a big turn off to the idiots who have come to see it..and yes you have to be a big dope to move into this town....
