Brad Winter's Distinguished Service Award - service to whom?

APS COO Brad Winter has received a good ol' boy award from the Council of the Great City Schools.  They call it a Distinguished Service Award,  link.  According to APS Supt Winston Brooks;

“Brad Winter has been committed to APS for more than three decades as a teacher, track coach and high school and district administrator,”
What Brooks is most impressed with is, when Winter was asked if he would provide a candid, forthright and honest accounting of spending at 6400 Uptown Blvd, he was able to look into people's eyes while promising he would deliver, though he hadn't any such intention, link.

So while Winter may have served students and the community for decades, his primary allegiance is to the leadership of the APS and helping them cover their sins - even at the expense of truthtelling to interest holders.

Service, not as distinguished as they would have us believe.
