For all those people who wrote letters to the editor on how absolutely necessary it was that Baltimore County have a tax increase to support education, I hope you are satisfied with the latest spending by the school board (“Baltimore County interim superintendent Verletta White, now demoted, will earn $232,700 consulting salary,” June 25).
If Ms. White was so important to the Baltimore County school system that they had to pay her a salary of $232,700, and a stipend of $8,770 for a car and $2,000 for a phone, why isn’t she the superintendent instead of a consultant?
The absolutely necessary tax increase wasn’t for the kids, it was for the ever-bloated management. Wise up, Baltimore County.
