PAGE, John B. - Governor, state treasurer, and for a generation prominent in Vermont railroading, as born in Rutland, Feb. 25, 1862, the son of William and Cynthia (Hickok) Page.Educated in the public schools, and at Burr and Burton Seminary at Manchester, he was called at the age of sixteen to assist his father, then cashier of the old bank at Rutland, to which office the son of John B. succeeded later, and so became a banker, and was many years president of the National Bank of Rutland, the reorganized form of the old state bank.He became interested in the Rutland & Burlington R. R., by being appointed one of the trustees of the second mortgage bon-holders, and upon the reorganization of the property as the Rutland Railroad Co., was made president.He was for a time co-trustee with Hon. T. W. Park of the Bennington & Rutland R. R., and later was associated with Hon. J. Gregory Smith as vice-president of the Central Vermont.He was a director of the Champlain Transportation Co., and various other railroad enterprises, and also in the Caughnawauga Ship Canal project for connecting Lake Champlain and the St. Lawrence, etc.He was instrumental in the transfer of the shops of the Howe Scale Co., from Brandon t Rutland, of which company he was the treasurer.He was in 182 elected a representative to the General Assembly of Vermont at the age of twenty-six, and re-elected for the sessions of 1853 and 1854.In 1860 he was elected state treasurer and received successive re-elections annually till 1866, and was during this time allotment commissioner by appointment of President Lincoln.He originated the plan for the payment of the extra state pay voted by Vermont to her soldiers, $7 per month, and disbursed during his term as treasurer a total of $4,635,150.80 for military expenses.In 1867 he was elected Governor and re-elected in 1868, serving with judgment and ability through the critical period after the war.He was again elected representative from Rutland in 1880 and took the place for the purpose of furthering some important measures that he had become interested in. Chief among these was a comprehensive scheme of tax reform, which is the foundation of our present corporation law, and with which he wished also to include a plan for the taxation of personal property like that of Connecticut.He made a strong fight for these ideas with the influential vested interest of the state mustered against him, and he lived to see them afterwards incorporated into its laws.He was a member of the Congregational church, for many years a deacon and superintendent of the Sunday school, a corporate member of the American Board of Commissioners for Foreign Missions and was instrumental in having the meeting of that society, the only one ever convened in the state, held at Rutland in 1874.During this meeting he led in the movement which resulted in the establishment of a Christian College in Japan which the late Joseph Neesima projected.His strong personality was illustrated by his advocacy and accomplishment, at a meeting of this society at Providence, of an effort to pay off a debt of over $70,000.He was one of the most public-spirited men and had always in mind the welfare of his town and state.In his young manhood he was foreman of the Nickwackett Engine Co., one of the oldest organizations of firemen in the state.He pushed the erection of the commodious Congregational church in 1860, building for future generations, and largely aided in the construction of the chapel addition, the two united forming, perhaps, the most complete church property in the state.He died Oct. 24, 1885, and is buried near Rutland in Evergreen cemetery, a "city" which eh helped to purchase and adorn.

But Lynchburg City Schools Chief Financial Officer Cynthia Page said the proposal leaves the schools $1.5 million short.The School Board budget includes "substantial increases" for teacher salaries, Page said.School officials pointed to a study that found Lynchburg teachers are paid well below market minimums.The increase in state money does help alleviate the problem, but she said the city budget won't cover everything the schools wanted to fund.
In fact, Chief Financial Officer Cynthia Page scaled back recommendations by the Management Advisory Group Inc. to boost the pay of more experienced teachers at a slower rate.MAG recommended, for example, that teachers with 10 years of experience be paid $44,111 as opposed to the $35,631 they currently receive in the Hill City.Page countered with a proposal of $38,458.Likewise, MAG recommended that teachers with 25 years receive $58,148 compared to the $44,897 they do now.Page recommended a more modest $49,314.So while Page is trying to be responsible with the taxpayers' money, she's also slowing the effort to reach the market rate.Under her scheme, school employees would reach the 2005 rate in 2008, which means they will still be behind.Page also recommended a 3 percent base raise for employees and increasing salaries to put employee pay at the minimum of market value.
The budget recommendations from LCS Chief Financial Officer Cynthia Page came two weeks after the administration and school board members learned that employee salaries are below the market value, thereby making the division less competitive with similarly sized school divisions. The salary study, conducted by Management Advisory Group Inc. (MAG) at the request of the school division, looked at 23 jobs and found that in many cases employees were paid 11 percent to 12 percent below the market value of their job. In order to become more competitive, MAG recommended that school division bring salaries up to market value. With that as the goal, Page proposed giving classified and administrative employees a base 3 percent raise, increasing salaries to put employee pay at the minimum of market value and increasing salaries on the experience-based pay scale.At Tuesday's meeting, Page proposed more moderate increases.She recommended a teacher pay scale that starts at $32,973 for teachers with no experience and moves to $35,942 for those with five years experience, $38,458 for those with 10, to $41,488 for those with 15, to $45,622 for those with 20 years and $49,314 for those at 25 years of experience. In addition, Page recommended that the division raise summer school salaries in order to prevent losing teachers to other divisions during the summer; hiring two secondary reading teachers; adding eight full-time English teachers at the middle schools; adding a specialized math program to middle schools; hiring additional public information staff; hiring 15 teacher leaders to help with staff development; and hiring two high school counselors.
