Nancy Bulea for Huron School Board
Bulea, 65, has served on the Huron school board for 17 years and the EHOVE board for four years. She said the school district must be financially strong with solid leadership and a strong teaching staff.
“Huron has worked very hard over the past 10 years to set up an organization/teaching structure to accomplish this goal,” Bulea said. “In Huron, the current majority school membership has lost the focus on education and fiscal responsibility.”
Bulea said if elected, she will refocus the board back to education and recommit to fiscally sound budget practices. She also said she wants to recapture board integrity that has been lost.
“Recently, there have been numerous instances of misuse of board policy, the law and a failure to fully disclose information to the taxpayer which has resulted in a loss of integrity,” she said.
The board needs to re-establish fiscal responsibility to ensure they build on the current education structure that has been established by the district’s academic success, Bulea said.
“To do this, I will examine all expenditures and implement prudent cost saving measures without disturbing the existing academic foundation,” she said. “If we do not curb spending, based on the current five-year forecast, we will be in fiscal emergency by (fiscal year) 2016.
“The projected, continued deficit spending must stop. We have a duty to the taxpayer to implement cost savings prior to requesting new money.”
