School pizza deal a win for Manchester official
Ward 8 Alderman Katsiantonis placed the winning bid this year to supply students at city schools with pizza.
The Board of School Committee voted unanimously to award him the contract on Sept. 9. School officials confirmed he was the lowest bid.
Katsiantonis said years ago, before he was an alderman but while he was in the state legislature, he questioned why the school district didn't put its pizza contract out to bid; soon the policy was changed. He estimated the district saves about $70,000 a year because of the change.
Ward 5 school board member and Subcommittee on Finance Chairman Ted Rokas said the fact that Grand Slam Pizza is owned by a city alderman came up briefly, but wasn't dwelled upon by school board members.
Papa Gino's had the contract the last three fiscal years, according to school officials.
