While we are on the subject of “salary” for the (new) Loomis Superintendent of Schools (Journal, June 16), I believe the community of Auburn and particularly the parents of school-age students would be alarmed not only of the salaries of current superintendents, but also the number of them. I counted 11 within an (approximate) radius of 30 miles — all of whom make six-figure incomes. This does not include their eight assistant superintendents and their staff. Why do these superintendents think they are so “superior” to teachers, custodians and the much-needed educational programs for the students, which have all suffered? It is time to consolidate individual school districts. Do we need 11 superintendents? Please make your voices heard. RUTH YOUNG, Auburn
