I'm not against the raises, probably have had few over the last few years, but it should have been in the budget, not transferred from contingency, that was not transparent.

Has anyone noticed the Finance Director and Assistant Finance Director account for 21.2% of the $45,677. The bean counters take care of themselves. Seriously?

"Silent Pat." That could be the campaign slogan. It's wonderful how Ms. Llodra will appear and disappear to her constituents when she chooses.

ccording to the Newtown Bee "During regular meetings September 4 and 10, and with virtually no discussion, the Boards of Selectmen and Finance unanimously approved wage increases for 30 municipal employees." With virtually no discussion. So the question is when did they discuss it, in a smoke filled room. The BOS and BOF especially don't just vote to approve $45,000 being taken from the contingency fund with virtually no discussion. I guess they can do it because they can?

Bruce, I couldn't agree with you more. Tax Payers take notice, the schools didn't really need the money they asked for. What happens when there is an emergency and funds are needed from the contingency fund for our schools? Are the staff going to offer to give back their raises? A higher fiscal responsibility is needed within the BOE.
