My neighbor gets a raise

Well, my neighbor, the Superintendent of Portsmouth Public Schools, struck a four-year deal with the School Board. Guess that weekend trip to Iowa paid off, eh, David?
Superintendent David C. Stuckwisch signed a new four-year contract Thursday night that increased his salary by more than $17,000 and bumped up his perks.

The School Board voted 8-1 to approve the contract, which takes effect July 1. School Board member B. Keith Nance Sr. voted against the new contract.

“I pledge to you that I will do my best every day to promote these schools in Portsmouth,” Stuckwisch said after thanking the board.

Under the new contract, Stuckwisch will be paid $142,000.

On top of that, his annuity or deferred compensation, will increase from $9,000 to 10 percent of his salary, or $14,200. His car allowance will rise from $6,000 to $7,000.
So now he's making well over twice what I'm bringing home. First I have deck envy, and now salary envy. But at least I don't have to put up with the cantankerous board members. Perhaps that's worth nearly a hundred grand...
