If, in fact, the trustees are going to throw more money at the superintendent after their fake evaluation today, I want to remind you of a post from September, 2016:

At the forum last Wednesday night, for example, we heard school board president Dana Black attempt to justify the superintendent’s big salary by claiming that the cost of living in these parts is high – yes, it is – and that the big taxpayer bucks are needed to allow the top-level people to live here because “we want the administrators to be a part of our neighborhood.”

Yes, she actually said that. I wrote it down.

Supt. Frederick Navarro lives in Long Beach.

See? It’s really simple: The superintendent will keep getting more of your money until he can afford to live in Costa Mesa or Newport Beach.
