Another raping of taxpayers by an Abbott District and Corzine

Well kids, Newark has a new superintendent, Clifford Janey, and guess what, he is going to be the highest paid superintendent in New Jersey, with a yearly salary of $301,000.00!  To add injury to insult, this contract has been approved by the big idiot himself, Jon (do as I say, not as I do) Corzine.  Yes kids, the same Jon Corzine who promised to deal with the ridiculous contracts that these superintendents are receiving in this state.  but, let’s dive a little bit farther into this contract and who it is being given to, one Clifford Janey.

Janey is being cited as having an extensive resume, including being superintendent of schools in Rochester, NY and Washington, DC.  Let’s have a look at these assignments.

He was the superintendent of schools in Rochester, but what is really interesting is how he left, how about this for a left out fact:

“When Rochester let him go, he was given a $260,800 separation agreement (that’s nearly half the amount of the entire RCSD’s budget for one year!) & a commitment that keeps school board members from saying nasty, if truthful, things about his competence.”

He was let go in Rochester in 2002, and the school board had a gag order to prevent them from telling exactly how bad this guy was running their school system.  Wow, what a resume builder that is, but that is only the top of the iceberg.  Let’s look at Washington, DC:

“The bureaucrats in the District of Columbia have given Doctor Clifford Janey the boot from his post as Superintendent of the schools there, effective immediately.”

“They liked the job he did SO much, they’ve eliminated not only him but also the position of Superintendent!”

“His current contract with Washington, D.C. runs for another two years. At $274,000 plus a $25,000 bonus, this man Janey is one lucky guy. Sweet! (Yes, he’s getting a bonus for 2006-2007 while being fired!) ”

Janey was superintendent in Washington DC for a little less than three years, and he gets fired again!  Just more padding for the resume.  It seems that what this fellow does best is getting fired and collecting huge settlements.

So this is what Corzine and the other clowns in Trenton think we should be spending our Abbott District funds on; a person who is a failure in all of his professional endeavors, to lead the largest, failing school district in the state!   And is there any wonder why this state is on the brink of economic disaster?

To all of the idiots in Trenton, “IT’S TAXES STUPID!”
