YOUR TURN: School security salaries

MEMPHIS, TN -

This week's "Your Turn" segment comes from Enrico Dagastino by way of the Action News 5 Facebook page. Dagastino is reacting to the Action News 5 investigation into the salaries for security employees at Memphis City Schools. He's not happy.

In Dagastino's words:

It is an outrage that the chief of security for the Memphis City Schools enjoys such a salary in a city in which poverty is so widespread. Our school board continues to act as a rubber stamp approving additional spending without requiring constant improvement in operational efficiencies and improved educational attainment and graduation rates. This lackadaisical approach to appropriate fiscal responsibility, the intimate relationships with overpaid cronies, and the demonstrated indifference to taxpayer concerns render Dr. Kriner Cash ill suited for a position of public trust.

That's Enrico Dagastino's turn. Now it's your turn. To comment on this segment or anything else, email yourturn@wmctv.com or call 800-465-1210.
