YOUR TURN: Say no to a Cash bonus

Posted: Updated:

This week's "Your Turn" segment comes from the Action News 5 Facebook page. The hot topic is the proposed $41,000 bonus for Memphis City School Superintendent Kriner Cash. More than 250 comments were posted on this topic and the people who spoke up were overwhelmingly opposed to the idea. We chose a comment from Billy Davis.

In his words:

The Memphis City School Board members are idiots. This guy already gets over $275,000 a year now. That bonus would be more than a teacher makes for the entire year. With all of the layoffs and positions that have been terminated, a bonus for a basically invisible superintendent is crazy. I doubt very much if even 5% of the people who paid their taxes intended for them to be spent like this.

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