Quick County Board Tea Partiers! Sell this property off just like the New Richmond Property so there will be no PUBLIC ANYTHING anymore!
Micheal Foley February 12, 2013 at 05:02 PM
Are you talking about the UU property?

Oh! The Hypocrisy. This Board just will not quit. They must go…
Truthometer February 12, 2013 at 10:07 PM
Which agenda item are you hot about? Is it the request and consideration to add three properties from Somerset and New Richmond into the HSD? As if we need more students in our district. Is it the investigation of UU, which should have been done prior to the dog track mess, knowing that when the city says no to water and sewer the HSD will then tell us they have to sell it and look for other property? Remember, we were told it was not buildable. Is it the addition of other options to consider for a building? I thought the board decided on three options and disbanded the Citizen's Committee because they had already chosen three? Where did these other two options come from? And what about public input? Is it the choosing of Hoffman and Co. to be the architect for whatever plan the board decides? Or is it the closed session to consider the super's compensation, opening again in open session where you can bet she will be given a big raise. Well, that's nice, that will add to the 930,000 that the board spent on wage increases district wide at the Dec. and Jan meeting. I wonder if their goal is to spend all of the 1.2 million saved on health insurance premiums thanks to ACT 10. Sure looks like it to me. If these items mean anything to you, vote on Feb. 19 and April 3 and vote Kunz. A vote for Johnson or Hanson will not put a stop to this kind of stupidity.
Micheal Foley February 12, 2013 at 10:10 PM
Election dates are Feb. 19 and April 2. If you vote on April 3, your vote won't count.
bblair February 12, 2013 at 11:36 PM
Truthometer, You are Correct Sir! Kunz for School Board....
Paine Reliever February 13, 2013 at 01:01 AM
How will a vote for Kunz stop the need to build more space for a growing district? You could have 7 sandy Gerhke clones on the board and a new superentendant and it won't change the need. I do agree that it is time that we spend yet more tax money to get yet another report about uu. This time Sandy is forced to be part of the process. Can't wait to see the cost of a stem school for 700 kids that only addresses our needs short term with no room for expansion. I look forward to the city addressing water and sewer
Micheal Foley February 13, 2013 at 01:39 PM
She's now making $159,480.
Frustrated Hudson Parent February 13, 2013 at 10:10 PM
Here we go again.... Do a poor job and get promoted with more pay and less work... Who is he in bed with? Granbow was a bad teacher at EP; Got promoted to be a bad Prinicpal at Willow; Got a newly created job at district in a systems improvement job... NOW promoted again Systems Improvement Director? What a crock!!!

For those of you interested in the superintendent's pay raise, here's a post I just finished with some analysis of numbers from comparative districts, including a calculation of "cost of superintendent per pupil": http://hudson-wi.patch.com/articles/hudson-school-board-grants-superintendent-13-000-pay-raise
