(Continued)

In the five years since 2008, every single budget was overstated by an average of over $1,700,000.

The School Board is again demanding an increase based on fantasy figures. It’s a rehash of last year’s deceit. Saying they were “cutting” the budget by 1.53 percent, but instead they ended up receiving 4 percent more.

Now for 2013-14, by using spurious accounting, they are asking for 4.8 percent “more” than they “incorrectly” budgeted last year, but in reality it is 10 percent “more” if they use generally accepted accounting principles rather than fantasy figures.

Vote against this deceptive budget. Elect responsible board members May 21.
