Some State's Politicians are abusing taxpayers, by allowing certain politically connected friends to collect a pension and a paycheck AT THE SAME TIME to do THE SAME JOB. We think this is wrong.
There are 255 Collier County Schools Triple Dippers receiving over $16.5 million in salaries and over $36 MILLION in cash bonuses just for showing up to work and are the only Florida public employees who don't pay 3% of their salary into the Florida Pension system.
Replacing the overpaid and over the hill Triple dippers with freshly trained and educated entry level employees would save taxpayers $20.1 million without cutting a single position.
The $21 MILLION savings should end the Reckless Collier Schools $34.3 million money grab proposed in the upcoming referendum. The referendum will loot the Capital budget by up to .35 mills and divert those looted, segregated taxpayer funds to operations which is mostly used for salaries.

“The highest paid Collier County Schools Triple Dipper is Superintendent Kamela Patton with an annual pay of $245,672 plus benefits. Kamela Patton is the Queen of the Triple Dippers in all of Collier and Lee Counties scheduled to receive a cash bonus Payout of $685,656 on June 30, 2023. WOW! How many homes, cars, fancy dinners and vacations does one person a "Public Servant" need at the expense of school kids and taxpayers?
