I am an Ultra-Conservative, Alpha-Male, True Authentic Leader, Type "C" Personality, who is very active in my community; whether it is donating time, clothes or money for Project Concern or going to Common Council meetings and voicing my opinions. As a blogger, I intend to provide a different viewpoint "The way I see it!" on various world, national and local issues with a few helpful tips & tidbits sprinkled in.
Residency rules for Teachers, Police Officers, and Firefighters:
In the public forum for Wal-Mart, someone brought up the residency clause for teachers in discussing the alternatives for revenue.
While I feel having the teachers have a residency clause would be good for the city; I think it would be bad for the schools and our children. Right now, it is hard enough to get teachers, not to mention great teachers, which is what I think of our educators.
If we should move forward with having a residency requirement, maybe having a grandfather clause is a good idea for the teachers we have already. I would not want to lose the awesome teachers we currently have.
I don’t think we have a residency clause for our fire/police either. I could be wrong though.
Someone at the last common council meeting said (while waiting after the meeting ended) that having the firefighters live in Cudahy would increase the time at which they could report and respond to a fire.
How do you feel in regards to these issues?
