Open Letter to the Citizens of Gloucester County Virginia
Thank you to the new Supervisors that kept your campaign promise to hold the line on spending. Accomplishing this while on the job less than four months is something to feel good about. Now you have time to look at cutting expenses next year and in future years.
The Virginia Constitution was written for us to limit the government intrusion into our lives. Have you ever read the Constitution of the United States? How about the Constitution of Virginia?
I have followed the proceedings to get to a new budget with great interest. Mr. Bazzani I think next year you should push to contract the complete school system not just non teaching positions. The Kiser’s indoctrination of the teachers, staff, and students that spoke in the BOS meetings show that they are not capable of teaching (I do not place all teachers in this group just those that spoke to the BOS). Abraham Lincoln was correct when he stated “…you can fool some of the people all of the time….” Who in their right mind would say and get published in the local gossip sheet, that you cannot contract out bus drivers because we cannot hire enough bus drivers? That is the reason to contract out. I thought papers used facts not worthless opinions? Has the paper been indoctrinated also? Does that make the paper more useless or less useful? You decide!
Let me provide some information. The BOS does not have a magic pot to get money from they take it from you and me. The School Board with the assistance of the School Administrator and the staff inform the BOS of the funds they would like to receive. The BOS determined how much to give them. In my opinion, the BOS choose to limit the funding since the School Board has not shown they are capable of being good stewards of the Taxpayers money. Check out Mr. Thompson’s blog site if this is news to you.
Now here is a news flash for the teachers, staff, and students that went after the BOS. The School Board determines how to spend the school funds. The School Board will spend the money on The Kiser and his staffs’ impenetrable castle with guards to keep out normal people rather than on teachers, books, and support staff. You need to get the School Board to do their job and set the priorities for the money they receive rather than them acting like sheep and giving The Kiser what he wants? When The Kiser started as Gloucester School Administrator our schools met the standards. At the end of the tenure our schools do not meet the standards? The School Board gave him raises? Why was he not fired? I do not blame the BOS they should have greatly reduced the spending not just held it constant. Only in the schools do you fail and get a promotion?
I am not a lawyer and cannot give legal advice. Our founding fathers used common sense and Christian scripture when establishing our founding documents.
