Denis, Leventhal & Ervin: Let's get to the bottom of it
Councilmen Howard Denis (R) and George Leventhal (D) acted in serious and dignified fashion to the Inspector General's report, saying that the council should investigate the findings of the audit.
School board member Valerie Ervin (D) defended the IG's authority, as well. "I think it is the responsibility of the Board of Education as an oversight body of the school system to fully cooperate with the inspector general," she said, according to the Gazette. "Let’s get to the bottom of these allegations."
