We have just been pointed to the way Rep. Tim Mahoney talks up (or down) the $100,000 study he revealed begins its work on whether or not there will be any cost-savings by consolidating the Administrations of six local Fayette County school districts into one countywide school district.

School district consolidation study to begin

"This study is for the consultants to recommend what we should do. They may come back and say 'Don't do anything because there is no savings,'" Mahoney said...

Has the Rep. been reading our site?
 
He must be. To even have the thought enter his mind at this point in time, the consultants might come back and "say don't do anything, NO savings," well we have to tell you, that comes straight out of the pages of Not Enough Said!
 
Straight out

"But I believe there will be a better way to save money and put that 15 percent we save back into education without anyone's taxes going up."

http://www.heraldstandard.com/news/local_news/school-district-consolidation-study-to-begin/article_8945ac45-6710-50c8-83a4-ecbb6c48c735.html

 

We don't know what Rep. Mahoney has been reading to claim "there will be a better way to save 15%."
 
15% of what, for one thing.  15% of an individual's property tax bill?  15% of the entire budget of the combined budgets of the consolidated school districts?  15% of one school district's budget (while the other budgets remain the same)?
 
What is the study of the consolidation of the Administrations of six area school districts for but to study the Administrations of six area school districts.
 
If NO savings are shown there what will be the "better way to save money?"
 
Where is the study that shows a "better way to save money" is by consolidating several school districts into one countywide school district to amount to savings of 15% - of something?
 
Is it possible the 15% savings would come from consolidating vendor services for soft drinks and bottled water usually available in high schools?
 
We don't know because Rep. Mahoney does not cite the specific study which already says 15% somewhere will be saved by doing something.
 
We're not even sure the 15% savings somewhere would be applicable to formally consolidating school districts as we questioned above.
 
Pooling vendors ah wait just a minute - anybody who is now thinking ahead and intends to offer themselves up as a candidate for  an open slot as director of the new countywide school district related to any owners of vending machine companies?  Pizza vendors?
