In an attempt to clarify a few points, I believe it is misleading to state that Regan "makes around $110,000". I think most people would be led to believe that this is his base salary. Is this the case before we get out our torches and pitchforks?
If you read Mayor Whalen's Letter to the Editor closely, he indicates that, including roll-up costs, Regan earns approximately $110,000. His definition of "roll-up" costs should be explained. Many businesses include employer's health insurance plan contributions, unemployment taxes, FICA and worker's compensation insurance paid on behalf of the employee in calculating the true cost of the employee. Most employees would be shocked to see this number since they don't see a good portion of these funds. This is the reason why many employers distribute annual compensation statements to their employees.
Also, comparing a starting teacher to Supt. Regan is comparing apples to oranges. Longevity has to be factored into the equation. What does a teacher in the system for 30+ years make? It is immaterial what a starting teacher makes. Besides, administrative/executive positions always pay more than the front lines, in every field. This is not unusual.
