The school board mismanages the budget through unnecessary programs, exorbitant salaries for their lawyer and superintendent while underfunding student resources and special education. They do not understand that HOW our money is spent is more important than how much money is spent.
The situation has become so dire that the board recently petitioned the Wake County Commissioners for $56M in additional spending and carried over $220M in covid relief funds to address the pending “fiscal cliff”. Please see my blog post on WCPSS budgetary malfeasance and waste. Mahaffey and the board are mortgaging away our children’s future. Changing Direction from WCPSS & Fiscal Cliff
When elected, I will ensure:
▪ transparent budgets through line-item audits
▪ direct student funding through use of the WSF formula (weightedstudent funding)
▪ cutting unnecessary programs that have not produced results
Chip in today and help give schools back to parents.
