Brad Winter's anniversary

Over the weekend, APS Chief Operating Officer Brad Winter had an anniversary; it was three months to the day, since he promised interest holders that he would produce a candid, forthright and honest accounting of spending on the APS board room.

He has not produced the record for one of two reasons;

  1. he cannot, or
  2. he will not.
Cannot would mean the records on the spending of nearly
a million tax dollars have been lost, destroyed, or are too confused or incomplete to be useful.

Will not would mean, the records exist but will not be produced because a deliberate decision has been made to hide them; likely because the records are too embarrassing, too shameful, or too criminal. It wouldn't be the first time the leadership of the APS has covered up criminal misconduct by administrators.

Nor would it be the first time the Journal has been part of a cover up of corruption and incompetence in the leadership of the APS.

If there is a third reason that taxpayers have not been told how much money they spent on a completely unjustifiable new board room, I cannot imagine it, and no one in the leadership of the APS or the Journal, has articulated it.
