Whoa, Big News From The School Distict

I don’t have any particular insight to the resignation of Bob Williams, his son, and this other guy. Here’s the story from The Ledger. But the construction companies mentioned here are big names, obviously. I don’t know what to make of it, except that school construction and maintenance is one of the true flows of big money into any community. I suppose temptation and jockeying for position always go on. We’ll see where this leads, but I wonder if a number of prominent construction-types aren’t holding their breath a bit today.

Any chance we can get those same investigators to go check out a different flow of big construction money into the county? Nevermind.

  1. There has long been the strong appearance of a much too cozy relationship between parts of our county government and special interests to the extent that the community is less well served than the favored few.  I’ve long thought that a special grand jury investigation of the entire county government would be a good way to restore public confidence and (if appearances prove substantive) to implement corrective action.  However, since we already have an on-going FBI investigation of part of the county government, perhaps they could just stay a bit longer, look a bit deeper,  and assure us that all is really and truly well.
