Letter on Wasteful Spending by Edgewater Park School District
----- Forwarded Message ---- From: K**** ******* To: firstname.lastname@example.org Sent: Wednesday, July 29, 2009 12:31:22 PM Subject: Wasteful Spending
First and foremost, thank you for your voice! Finally there is someone who truly is dedicated to getting to the bottom of things here in Edgewater Park.
I'm writing this letter, infuriated, with the news that our illustrious edgewater park school board, which passed the new budget I might add, (almost topping 14 million dollars for the fiscal year) took on a new PART TIME employee this season, working only TWO days a week in the maintenance dept. soley as an Heating and Air Conditioning specialist??? WTF you might ask??? Well after digging into this and speaking with a LOT of my former school personnel, this new "employee" so to speak, was hired on to complete projects that the school district back burnered through-out the year due to his previous status of being the schools primary HVAC contractor and achieving the states public bidding threshold as defined in N.J.S.A 18:18A-3.
What better to do after a school district can't pay-out anymore money to you on your company side? Hire you as an employee making almost MORE than the regular maintenance men do working full time!!!! WHAT A CROCK!!!
Who is this you ask??? Try John Stidfole of Stidfole & Associates, Chestnut Street, Beverly NJ.
The public employees database is not current with 2009 employees but ask anyone! His wife Michelle however IS an employee for the Burlington Twp. School district as indicated in the database.
Now this may not mean a lot to some people, but when I read between the lines on this one I see the infamous streckenbien administration trying to pull the wool over our eyes once again utilizing taxpayers money.
Hire the same contractors to do the work every year.
When the work's done or they're topped out hire them as an employee.
Pay them to fix & maintain everything they've already been paid to install.
Makes sense to me doesn't it??? Why do we even have a maintenance dept. then?
I'm sick of it. Over and over again. The last time they did this was when they let all of the kitchen help go and hired a private food industry to cater the school district! Maybe you didn't know about that one also! Feel free to ask around about our great schools. Perhaps the state may increase the number of pay to play figures to 45 or even 46 when it's all said and done.
