Hey, if that's what he wants for himself and his family then good for him. I wish him luck.
However, I'd be remiss if I didn't ask if the Super Cap had some bearing on his decision to look elsewhere. If you remember, he was rushed into a November 2010 Board meeting to sign a contract with a start date no later than the February 7, 2011 effective date of the new Super Cap law. He got a $210,000 starting salary back then and he's at $218,484 now - and that will go to $222,854 on July 1st - the last year of his contract. Once this contract is up - he falls under the Super Cap and that will be less than he's making now. He beat the Super Cap once - is this now a second time? And when he was hired, didn't the Board know what would happen when his contract was renewed? Did they really want to hire a one-term Super?
Well, I guess it really doesn't matter if it was part of his decision-making process or not or what the Board had in mind - he's opted to seek employment elsewhere.
I truly hope he gets the job because who wants a Super that we now know is looking for the exit ramp.
We've invested a lot of time and taxpayer money in him and do we really want someone in such an important position spending time looking elsewhere?
And, let's not forget, we need a new School Board for two reasons; (1) for picking Senor O'Malley, and (2) for failing to explain to the people of Downtown Edison that he's publicly out there looking for a new gig.
Anyhoo, the more things change in this town, the more they stay the same.
