YONKERS, NY – June 23, 2012 – Yonkers Tribune has learned that in an agenda that came before the Yonkers Board of Education Board of Trustees in its meeting this week, the Board of Trustees took an up and down vote in which YPS Superintendent Bernard Pierorazio was given an extension to his contract that has him employed until 2018. No advance notice was divulged and the new contract has been kept under wraps since the vote took place on Wednesday, June 20, 2012.
Superintendent Bernard Pierorazio earns approximately $265,000 per annum plus perks, for a sum of approximately $300,000 yearly.
The stealth of darkness maneuver to extend the contract in favor of Superintendent Pierorazio is a contract that can be clawed back. It must be reviewed post haste by the newly posted Inspector General.
No discussion, no advance notice that the issue would come to a vote, the contract not noticed in advance. All improper conduct. This contract had best not stand legal scrutiny. The vote was 7 for the contract, 0 against the contract, and 2 abstained, the newly appointed member to the Board of Trustees, D. Nader Sayegh, Esq., and John Jacono.
