Your money GONE like a rabbit in a hat. The hat was worn by Frank Raia, Theresa Burns, Carmelo Garcia, and Frances-Rhodes Kearns.
Egregious abuses of the public's money targeted for our kids' education keep coming from the pages of the 2005-2006 Hoboken BoE audit.
Readers are sending me their 'finds' but I simply can't keep up.
Are you ready for this?
$1.9 Million disappeared in excess payments to vendors with (95% having) "no evidence of approval."
|2005-2006 BoE audit- page 50|
That's right. Because...
91% of vendor contracts were "not available for review."
Not available? Or non-existent?
What kind of legitimate business transaction with a school district has no paperwork?
How was this billed? Reviewed? Approved? Without paperwork.
WHO approved these excess amounts, based on WHAT?
Where the hell did our money GO?
On the next page (page 51) the audit notes that "invoices were dated PRIOR to purchase orders". What is THAT about? Did the amounts invoiced match the P.O.s?
Folks, this MAGIC disappearing act happened under the management of CURRENT Board members, AND those considering a run for the School Board.
Do you want these people running our district again?
Kids First stopped the 'magic' and that's WHY the Old Guard and their operatives are fighting so HARD to topple them- with online smears and unruly behavior at School Board meetings.
Not to mention over the top, drama-queen letters to The Hoboken Reporter.
