School budget process
By Charles Edwardson
March 30, 2008
I guess my last rambling letter missed the mark appealing to
the public to attend and comment on the Ketchikan school budget
process. Only one guy commented and apparently the budget is
perfect so none of us has any room to complain. Good job school
board and borough budget committee. You have passed a perfect
budget that needs no public comment or participation. The public
trusts you completely and has no qualms about how things are
running. Microsoft could take some pointers from this budget
committee and the school board.
For the two school board members who were on the side of activities
taking more of a priority, apparently you two and a few of us
that failed to try to help were in the minority. The long term
negative effects of our negligent priority list will have to
be realized when it is too late.
Sorry for not participating. Now I have no right to complain
about these choices of priorities for our schools. I can doubt
the rational but have no right to criticize, as I failed to participate
as did everyone else who had a question or two.
To the school board members
who feel frustrated and feel like you are fighting an uphill
battle, thanks for your support and service. Even the ones who
passed this 'budget" -- thanks for your efforts, even though
I personally feel you missed the mark .
