A lot of money was wasted on consultants that did not do their jobs effectively. These consultants were hired by the current administration and board. They have to be held accountable for that. Who checked behind these people at the district level to ensure the accuracy of the work done…

JBG,

Check the record, Cynthia Malveaux, Bill Spillar, David Rac and Joe Cantu voted yes on the RIFs Mr. Burley recommended. The others stuck their heads in the sand and wanted to do what they thought was popular to their audience and supporters. For the record ,the minutes reflect a…
