Tamath Rossi, Rosa Rebimbas, Ron San Angelo, and even though Wayne McAlister is in for the Board of Ed, please express your opinions!!!!! Sorry to put it soooo bluntly but how come some union workers get increases when the private sector is still suffering.... And I do not agree with "Health Insurance" concessions as the private sector does not get any "concessions"!

I wouldn't put Wayne in for the BOE as his contract is with the municipality and he receives funds from the BOE for services rendered. The point of interest should be in Parcels A ,B and perhaps the creative financing that may occur to facilitate its purchase.

I believe his title is Town Comptroller but his role for the BOE is "business manager" for services rendered... Therefore, I would love to hear how he feels about our town budget!

Based on the article and data above, oncessions were given by the employees. In most cases these are employees contributing a higher portion of their healthcare out of their salary. In the summary chart, that is the negative number attributed to healthcare. With national healthcare costs on average expecting to rise 10 -16% for next year this is not a bad deal for the town IMHO.

Sorry, didn't finish, the private sector gives up these concessions every time a private employer lowers a healthcare benefit, removes a benefit or increases the employee required contribution.
