Higher Education Commissioner Sally Clausen has given the state's high-paid poohbahs a lesson in how to handle an economic crisis. She cut her own salary in half.
Here's a shout-out to all the contractors, department heads, commissioners and assorted leeches who deserve their high-flying salaries because hey, you have to pay top salaries to get the top people: Do what Sally did.
And while you're considering which nationally certified educators can do without their stipends, or which school support employees can work for less because you've decided to privatize their jobs: Do what Sally did.
While you're deciding which potholes can go unpatched, which bridges can rust, which parks can be padlocked: Do what Sally did.
That's all. Do what Sally Clausen did.
