EDUCATORS’ PENSIONS POSTED ONLINE

More than 1,000 retired New York State school teachers and administrators are entitled to annual pensions of more than $100,000, according to pension data posted today on www.SeeThroughNY.net, the government transparency website. The new database from the New York State Teachers Retirement System (NYSTRS) includes name, benefit rate, retirement date and last known employer when available, for 134,796 people collecting pensions in 2009.

So how much is Dan Gilligan, former Superintendent of New Hartford Central School/Town of New Hartford Economic Development Czar making these days whilst he retires in his Arizona home? According to this database, Mr. Gilligan receives $119,573.76 annually!

His predecessor, Robert Bradley enjoys a $100,165.56 annual pension.

One can only imagine what current Superintendent Robert Nole will be receiving when he retires. Here is a copy of Nole's current contract that expires on October 14, 2011.

This database also includes pensions for all retired teachers. Take a look at the annual pensions for all 114 teachers and administrators that are retired from the New Hartford Central School system (this is a pdf document we created from information we found in the database listing).

All schools in NYS are listed on See Through New York. To view the pensions of other schools, click here!

We need to vote down the upcoming school board budget.

With these type of retirements, it is no wonder that we are paying very high school real property taxes.

What the hell is going on in this town.

Please VOTE DOWN the New Hartford School Budget.
