ABSOLUTELY POSITIVELY YES. Please see my detailed reply to your question on Dave Weinstein's profile comments. People that know me well know that I think this is a critical issue for all levels of government, and the only real way we will get control of our expenditures. We do NOT have a revenue problem, we have a SPENDING problem. That problem, at its' root, is related to benefits (even more than salaries), causing "long tail" spending problems. I do not know Dimitri but he apparently is knowledgeable about this point, since he has looked at the cost structure of the schools and knows that 83 percent of the budget is salaries and benefits. I suspect that he and I would be aligned on the key issues. The only way we will accomplish two seemingly divergent objectives of 1) improving education - which we MUST do to allow our children a good chance to compete in the global economy - and 2) keeping our taxes under control, is to look at ALL expenditures closely. THIS WILL BE HARD AND INVOLVE SAYING NO TO SOME SO WE CAN SAY YES TO OTHERS. I am an EXPERT at cost containment (see my background on LinkedIn http://www.linkedin.com/profile/view?id=626137&trk=tab_pro) and know how this is done in the business world. I am NOT saying that education is the SAME as for-profit business, but there are principles that can and should be applied. Fundamentally this will require us to define our priorities. Not everything can be a top priority.

Did he say principals ???? I think we have about 20 of them at the high school alone if you include the vise principals? LOL

I registered as a Republican years ago in order to vote in a Republican primary and I have never bothered to change my affiliation but I vote for candidates not parties and always have.

The article in Nov 13th's Philly Inquirer says it all. The article foused on Brandon Pugh "From Schoolboy to School Board. Hard-Charging Brandon Pugh 19, Won A Seat". Quoted in the article was Moye. Whan asked about Pugh, Moye said, “I didn’t give him a second thought.” Moye also said, "He said he found it “kind of insulting” to be compared with Pugh. It is statements like these that say a ton about a person's character. And this is not the character the school board needs. Perhaps next time Moye will be less arrogant and condescending to an opponent who quite frankly "kicked his butt".
