Streifer to retire, sort of, well, not like most people retire

School Superintendent Philip Streifer is joining the ranks of high-paid school officials who retire but then get hired to stay on. It's classic double-dipping, of course, and even though it may save city taxpayers some money, it just doesn't look right.
Then again, it's hard for most of us to accept the sorts of pay that upper level educators get.
Anyway, here's the link.

This is pure bull shit whats going on in bristol. This guy says the school board needs money. YEA to fill his pockets. If the council and Mayor let this go by there political days will soon be over. Tax Payers are stupid if they let this go by. Took a offer on my house last week thank god. Think i will rent for a while.

That's quite a country club down there at the BOE. How many previous "retired" administrators did the same thing in the past? How many "supervisors" and "assistants to...." do duplicate work or generate superfluous paper shuffling to justify their position? Yet the schools go without and class sizes continue to grow. That's alright though, as long as the top people get theirs they don't care if it doesn't pass the smell test.

Time to take a stand. Let him retire and dont replace him plenty of people doing nothing and getting big money. Let some one else fill in. We must stop kissing these over paid guys asses. Let him go work at Mr OBRIENS FUNERAL PARLOR opening doors or something.

12:08, What's really TOO bad is that you have 3rd grade level writing skills and your comments are at approximately the same grade level.

Was this something that Ward and Klocko could have caught in the budget?

Don't Doyle and O'Brien talk to the Mayor?

Is anyone running this city?
