Phil's Pheeding Phrenzy

Phil - I am really surprised.

The more I read your proposed policy on Board members expense reimbursement,   the more disappointed I get.

As I've stated before, I don't like your proposed policy.  But - I was willing to let you and your phriends on the Board of Education go to two meetings and two "events."  However, the more I look at the "events" list, the more disappointed I get.

For example, your policy says that MCPS events are not eligible - so why do you have the MCCPTA Principals and Presidents Dinner?   PAY YOUR OWN WAY.

Annual Latin Dance Competition?  It says MCPS, so take it off the list and pay your own way.

Committee for Montgomery Legislative Breakfast - this is political so take it off the list and pay your own way.  Same for the Minority Legislative Breakfast.

Finally - another cut at what should come off the list?

Any event where one of your Board members or Board staff sits on the Board of the sponsoring organization.  Good bye Gala for Community Services for Autistic Adults and Children.

I'll check the list and get back to you will additional deletions.

Anyone else care to comment?

The next meeting of  to discuss the policy on Board members "compensation and expense standards" will be the July 22, 2014 meeting of the Ad Hoc Committee for Review of Board Processes and Guidelines on Board Expenditures.

Let Phil know that the credit card issue is out of control and embarrassing. Tell Phil and the other Carverites to stay home, pack a bag lunch, and stop the feeding frenzy.

  1. Next let's look at the taxpayer funded conferences that MCPS staff attend. Who is attending and WHY? Do whole staffs need to attend conferences? What positions are attending? What happens with the information? How is it used? How much money per position is used for conferences?
