Floreen: BoE dodge is 'absolutely unacceptable'

Another County Council member expresses outrage at the school system's refusal to respect an inspector general investigation.

"For the School Board to even suggest that we don’t have the right to look at their work is absolutely unacceptable," Councilwoman Nancy Floreen says in the Almanac.

"We count on the School Board to check the numbers and to recommend to us projects that they support with strong rationale and good financial justification," she says. "[School Board members] better get over it if they think we’re not going to ask questions about how they spent county money."
