Christie names ‘poster boy of greed’ in public school system

PARSIPPANY — The Parsippany Board of Education voted 6-2 tonight to renew the contract for district schools Superintendent LeRoy Seitz, just hours after Gov. Chris Christie called the contract greedy and arrogant because it would exceed the proposed pay cap for superintendents.

The board voted to extend Seitz’s contract, which expires July 1, by another five years, paying him an average annual salary of $225,064. The contract was approved by the Executive Morris County Superintendent Kathleen Serafino on Friday, according to board attorney Mark Tabkin.

“I appreciate the support of the board and I am truly honored and humbled to work for Parsippany-Troy Hills, their parents and their school system,” Seitz said after the vote.
