Manatee County school board can't justify own pay increase

June 22, 2014 

For Manatee County school board members looking for a pay raise, tell them to go see former Superintendent Tim McGonegal -- the one they were supposed to be keeping a eye on.

I would really like to know what the board members' jobs are.

The support people at the school district have not gotten a raise in years and we do our jobs. Oh, I could use an iPad also and an assistant.

I really can't believe that they think they deserve a raise.

If they do get it, then I think there is something really wrong going on.
