EPISD not the biggest hogs

This slide is part of a future EPISD finance and administration committee meeting:

It looks like the city is leading the way on tax increases.

We deserve better

    Brutus now has a template on who to pick on and in what order. We never hear about EPCC, less about UMC and very little about the county tax increases on this blog. The city and EPISD seem to take up an inordinate amount of pixel space and time. According to this graph. the City, Country, EPCC and UMC should have as much if not more than EPISD on wasted tax payer dollar articles. We can assume that this slide purposely left off the neighboring school districts. YISD probably would be there as well as CISD.

      The slides on this forum are just conversation starters. Where the conversations go from there is anyone’s guess. This is what makes an open forum so interesting.

      Take this current side for example; we have no idea what the meaning is other than the fact that dollar signs are in front of the numerals. Each of us sees what we want in the data and writes what is on our minds. It’s like an ink blot test of sorts that confirms we are all pessimistic skeptics 😉 In this case we don’t even know if the data represents expenditures or revenues. If the data is for a finance meeting it would suggest the numbers might be revenue related – then EPISD will probably ask for more money to keep up with the other taxing entities (even though no other public school districts are included for better comparison). Also, if it’s an increase, then from what? There is also nothing to suggest these figures represent millions, but my mind tells me that is probably the case. Maybe EPISD only increased something by nine dollars over five years?

      On the other hand, what if the numbers are expenses? Even though expenses would be better suited for a budget meeting and not a finance meeting, what if the numbers are total expenditures for executive restroom remodeling over a five year period? We might be proud of EPISD (but alas, probably not, JC dropped $35K on his office remodeling during a so called budget crisis). Then again, maybe they are legal expenses? Dry cleaning bills? We truly have no idea but we are having fun thinking – and that is the point I believe. Here is food for a conspiracy theory, perhaps the slide’s ambiguity is intentional on the part of EPISD?

    Well the TAXPAYERS of El Taxo have to support the leeches , Margo, Tommy Gonzalez in the manner to which they are accustomed. Stuffed pockets. And then there is Juan Cabrera at EPISD, another leech on the butts of TAXPAYERS. Wasted MILLIONS$$$$$. Fire them all. Elections have consequences and PAIN, but only for TAXPAYERS. The POLITICIANS, people like Margo, Gonzalez, Cabrera just get RICHER.
