Budget work session under way
The Spotsylvania County School Board is currently meeting in an all-day work session. The quote of the morning has come, so far, from Board member Ray Lora during a discussion of the energy manager position.
Board member Marty Wilder noted that when the person is paid $57,246 and last year saved the division $1.3 million on utilities, he had one word on the matter: “Duh.”
Lora then offered his take on the reaction of teachers who have had to give up on small appliances in their classrooms such as coffee pots, microwaves and space heaters.
“The only people who like change are babies with diapers,” he said.
See tomorrow’s Free Lance-Star for more information from the session.
