County construction official Jim Tokar remains silent on corruption questions

Jim Tokar, the Montgomery County Public Schools official responsible for the construction of the Seven Locks "replacement school" on Kendale Road, remains silent about questions concerning corruption.

PTA members asked Tokar and other officials repeatedly for their professional opinions, as well as facts, concerning the amount and nature of corruption in the construction of the Kendale Road project and other school projects in the county.

Tokar and other county officials have ignored the questions since last winter - with one exception, when another county official, Richard G. Hawes, publicly ridiculed the concerned parents.
