Vegas Trip Vetoed?

As this blog reported on Friday, March 13, 2009, MCPS Director of School Safety and Security, Mr. Bob Hellmuth, was scheduled to give a presentation in Fabulous Las Vegas, Nevada, on Wednesday, April 1, 2009, entitled: "Montgomery County Public Schools: Utilizing Design Standards to Ensure The Right System." Mr. Hellmuth was scheduled to be a panelist along with John Murdock, Jr. (Vice President, Security Division, Netcom Technologies Inc) and Paul Bodell, Vice President Sales and Marketing, IQinVision.

Apparently there has been a change in plans. If you CLICK HERE to go to the revised conference website, the conference website now no longer shows Mr. Hellmuth listed as a panelist, and instead shows Mr. James Gompers, the security consultant to MCPS who selected the IQinVision system. (note: click HERE for an article on how MCPS selected, and financed, the purchase of the IQinVision system).

  1. Is Gompers traveling on MCPS money? Don't we have DIRE economic times that require tightening of spending - or does that only apply to students and teachers?
