Betty Burney takes 95k from the county

 If you have read the blog you know I am not a fan of Burney.
Her personal wealth increased greatly while she was on the board while at the
same time the schools she was in charge of languished. Then don’t get me going
about her and her family’s ethics violations.
I was particularly disappointed to learn that the district
will be paying her I’m a Star Foundation 95 thousand dollars to provide
outreach to the parents of overage children. I sincerely hoped we had closed
the book on her involvement in the district.  
Here is the thing, when Vitti talks about the community
willing to be involved I believe him. Aren’t these the types of services we
should be getting members of the community to do for free but even if not, if
this job is so important isn’t it one we should be putting bids out for to make
sure we get the best people at the best price?

Then there is the 95k fee; I believe the super is
allowed to approve anything under a hundred without board approval, which also
helps him avoid public input which is 
convenient because I know I am not the only member of the public
that feels the same as above.
