|APS CFO Don Moya|
I posted a comment on their report for their and their readers consideration.
The one thing you can count on is that we will never know the truth about the squandering of our trust and treasure. There will never be a candid, forthright and honest accounting of the misspending of our power and resources.
There's only one reason to hide the truth; to escape the consequences of the truth being known. The "leadership" of the APS will continue to hide the truth in their own self interests.
The Journal will continue to refuse to investigate and report upon the underlying and causal ethics, standards and accountability crisis in the leadership of the APS, for reasons yet to be articulated.
The Journal's immediate problem, in the face of APS trying to float a bond issue in a couple of months, it's newsworthy as hell either way.
Either there are in place, ethics and standards high enough, and accountability inescapable enough to protect the public interests in the public schools, or there are not.
Stake and interest holders deserve the truth; the whole truth and nothing but the truth about the spending of power and resources belonging fundamentally to the people.
The Journal is yet to honor its obligation to inform the democracy in anticipation of that election.
