BOOM! Taste My Nightstick!
Can we somehow clone this guy?
Governor Christie is on a tear. He continues to enrage some and amaze others. And then there are those of us who cheer him on! The latest on the chopping block? Seven school superintendents. The Governor has decided to fire one-third of the state’s county education chiefs whose three-year appointments expired Monday.
New Jersey.com is reporting –
Seven education chiefs for New Jersey counties have been dismissed.
Gov. Chris Christie decided not to retain them when their contracts expired Monday.
The dismissals were first reported by The Record of Woodland Park.
Christie spokesman Michael Drewniak said the seven county superintendents affected were holdovers from the previous administration who would be replaced by Christie appointees.
The positions pay $120,000 a year. County superintendents are assigned to see that state Education Department policies are carried out at the local level.
Superintendents in Burlington, Cape May, Hunterdon, Monmouth, Ocean and Somerset counties were dismissed, along with the Middlesex superintendent who also acting superintendent for Bergen County.
No word yet on whether the governor offered to help them pack.
