NEWS FLASH: WAUKEGAN PUBLIC SCHOOLS DISTRICT 60 SUPERINTENDENT DONALDO BATISTE DISCOVERS AVAILABLE FUNDS IN THE BUDGET!!
Considering the recurring protestations by hired gun Anthony Ficarelli that WPS only has 5 months reserves and not really a surplus we were surprised to learn today that Board members and Batiste are playing dress-up and enjoying rubber chicken dinners....
and you guessed it, fully funded by your taxpayer dollars.
Why a public school Board would need to make payments for attending dinners at charitable events is mind boggling. To boot, the charities or noble causes consistently look to WPS60 as Daddy Warbucks.
We just received this FOIA response regarding the practice of purchasing tables at these events.
Read it to yourself....
Donaldo and Anita, why not enjoy free meals at taxpayer expense while WPS60 students, who rely upon hot meals served in schools are used as your pawns in collective bargaining negotiations?
Careful, don't drip the gravy on your clothes!
