Examiner: School board official used official credit card for personal purchases

According to news reports, Montgomery County Public Schools (MCPS) Board of Education member Christopher Barclay used his school system issued American Express card for personal purchases.
The bio posted on the Board of Education website states that “Mr. Christopher Barclay was elected to his second four-year term on November 6, 2012, after being appointed to the Board on December 9, 2006. Mr. Barclay has served as president of the Board in 2010 and 2013, as well as vice president in 2009 and 2012. He is a member of the Fiscal Management Committee and the Strategic Planning Committee. ”
Barclay’s explanation that it “was an honest mistake,” did not sit well with many in the community who pointed to his role on the Fiscal Management and Strategic Planning Committees.
In addition, Barclay is campaigning for the highly coveted Montgomery County Council seat for District 5. He has been endorsed by, among others, the Montgomery County Education Association (MCEA). Former Councilwoman Valerie Ervin, whose seat Barclay seeks to fill, has also endorsed him.
