40K, that's absurd!

How can this (tax payer) pay raise be justified?

It can't. That is why the Board kept it a secret. They knew their decision was screwing the KC taxpayers.

Oh my god. Barely limped into provisional accreditation, and he gets a raise larger than the family incomes of the majority the families in the district? And a car? AND another contract for three years? Pretty sweet. One and a half mil for six years is a good living if you can make it.

10:35 quit bitching dude! US rich folks that live on Ward Road just got a brand new road, we own this city and if you dont like our privalage move the fuck on to another city that gives less than 5 shits about your complaints,(like KCMO) only people with money matter here, I am sure you are starting to figure that out by now, so figure it out you trash people making less than 300K a year, we love our dumb young people who rent, those are the suckers that keep us rich, along with our KCPL partners who charge 3X what a drink is worth when we have a event in town, One would think the greed would yeild to the locals, after all this city would be a ghost town if it were not for people coming here for work because the HAVE to. KCMO for sure has no class!! Hopefully I will never have to come back here for my job, I truely feel sorry for the people who live here!!
