Update: Nelson recently refused to take a raise, Laredotejas stands corrected.
Sometimes, I can't help but be influenced by the LMT's asleep-at-the-wheelitis. Case in point: I recently suggested that UISD and LISD superintendents take a voluntary cut in pay as a show of leadership for their respective districts. Well, fellow blogger Que Fregados brought it to my attention that Nelson had just turned down a raise. I had missed that recent development and I applaud Dr. Nelson for taking this action of his own accord. Some may say it's mostly symbolic but how many of us would volunteer to do with less money? A letter to the editor appeared in today's LMT praising Dr. Nelson as well. Thanks again to Que Fregados for the heads up and congratulations to Dr. Nelson for his example.
