Fresno County Schools Superintendent Larry Powell reduced his salary from $290,000 to $31,000 recently as a way to handle reduced resources. He said, “If we face mid-year budget cuts, I can have the money ready to go and it doesn’t affect our employees.”
What a great role model. What would you do in a similar situation?
Doing it well sometimes means doing something difficult in the short run so that you reap benefits in the long run.
