FBN: One Board Member Votes Against Extending Superintendents Contract

See: http://www.fortbendnow.com/2011/01/11/49869

"Fort Bend Now has submitted an open records request to the district to view the contract, including the amendments. When the contract is made available, Fort Bend Now will publish the details." FBN

FBW comment: Apparently the publically announced cut by the district to the superintendents contract is a misleading statement based on bonus monies being included now as part of his regular pay. This makes the money guaranteed in the new year of the contract if verified. FBN has requested a copy of his contract.
