REVIEW THE SALARIES
BEFORE YOU VOTE YOURSELF & YOUR NEIGHBORS ANOTHER ANNUAL TAX HIKE​

Public school educators are inflating & eviscerating public school budgets.​  Our school budget is their grab bag.  Aided and abetted by colleagues, sympathizers and well meaning clueless members on school boards.  A state backed abusive monopoly that the state had to rein in with 2% tax cap.  A fiscal cancer damaging NY, Nassau & Baldwin.

Annual tax hikes are pass thru revenue to the salaries & benefits of public educators.
Educator-heavy school boards collude to sign  rich sweetheart contracts​ , "self-dealing" with their colleagues.

Baldwin SD:  Entitled to their annual tax/budget hike???   
2019 Budget         features 8.47% salary hike for Supervisors(people already paid $140k- $210k)​

​The School ​Budget  is funded by 70% of your property taxes, 25% of NY State Income taxes, 12% NY State Sales tax revenue, part of electric bill  15% (property taxes on PSEG) and the heavy property taxes on every business in Baldwin passed on to customers


2008-18Enrollment down  - 16%    as   budget increases  +30% 
Baldwin:   $ 131 million budget / 4526 students (8 schools)  = $ 29k/student = $ 10/gallon @ Valero = $12 BigMac​

​Money intended to enrich students is diverted to enriching educators.

 Karyn  uses the taxes of our low wealth residents to hand over to her well off educator colleagues.  And then begs NY for more because we're poor!

The Baldwin teachers heavily campaigned for  Karyn Reid, paying off a debt of gratitude from the last contract Karyn Reid signed​ as Board President.

Meanwhile our math scores are so low ​​, the District hired a new additional Math administrator (Mr. Lok Yung) to figure out   why Baldwin is so bad ?

Cheerleader wannabe Mrs. Reid  cares about sports, sports, sport, sports.... academics?  fuhgettaboutit​!
