    I hope people have read today the recap on the board meeting last night at MDUSD. Some important information was brought to our attention, namely that the Superintendent does not play a role in budget development. Check it out at http://mdusd.blogspot.com

  2. Jackie Burrell Says:

    Here’s an excerpt from the MDUSD blog, in which embattled Mt. Diablo superintendent Gary McHenry responds to questions concerning a $2.7 million budget discrepancy … just three short years after assuring his constituency that he was going to get his financial house in order:

    “When asked what role he takes in overseeing budget development the Superintendent responded:

    ‘My role was simply to talk with the Chief Financial Officer and ask if the figures were accurate and I was assured that they were. But I don’t have an actual role in budget development.’

    He then confirmed that he does not perform any number checking or analysis of the budget.”
