That is VERY freaking cool! A lot of people, not just in government, could learn a lot from this man's example. How many public officials would be willing to give up 3 years pay (even the ones that could afford to won't) and still work? So many of our politicians are really just about the money and the perks that they get, it is good to see a public official willing to step up and be an example. Even the fact that he didn't tell people is an example to others. He's not asking for kudos or to be recognized, he's just doing the right thing for the school districts he runs.
I wish we had more people like this man in both high ranking public and private sector positions. Lord knows a lot of CEO's could stand to learn something from his example too!
