Here's why school budgets lose in Roxbury

The commotion of the primary almost made me forget the Roxbury school board …. Recall that the budget was defeated and that the council recommended cutting an assistant to the superintendent’s position …

The school board refused,  and on Monday, it voted to give the assistant a 2 percent raise for next school year..

Chris Rogers, who voted no on the raise along with Maureen Castriotta, tried to introduce some common sense into the picture. He said this is why school budgets in Roxbury often are defeated.  Wise man, that Rogers.

    Roxbury is paying this Bozo $127K to place ads in local papers.

    At the last BOE meeting, this Bozo bragged that by accident he was able to save the district money due to a screw up on his part. Apparently, he missed the deadline to place an ad in the paper. Due to his error, the paper ran it the next day at a special promotion rate that they were offering to all school districts. So did Roxbury get a lucky break because of him or in spite of him? Why is he placing the ad instead of the secretary? Why wasn’t he aware of the newspaper special before placing the ad? Is this all he accomplished for the last 5 months as an overpaid secretary? Why is the BOE giving him a raise for less than a year with the district when according to the voters and the town council this position should be eliminated due to budget cuts? And the BOE wonders why budgets are defeated in Roxbury!

    Isn’t that the same town that has Duped Miller as a board member? That board of ed ought to be run out of town on a rail.
