Will Phil Take the High Road . . .

and ban all credit card spending for MCPS Board of Education Members and MCPS Staff?

Phil Kaufman, the President of the Board of Education, and one of the out of control spenders elected to the Board of Education, is promising to pass a new policy on the rather embarrassing situation with MCPS credit cards.

The next Board of Education meeting is Tuesday, July 15, 2014.  If Phil wants a policy discussed and voted on at the July 28th BOE meeting, the new business session is where he will introduce his new policy.

What will Phil do?  We may not find out, because both meetings have closed sessions.

Personally, I believe the only appropriate policy he can implement involves a moratorium on credit cards throughout the school system.  Stay local, bring a thermos of coffee and a brown bag lunch.  No food for you!

If you have an opinion, contact the Board.  Phil seems to think that guidelines will be sufficient - really - and who does he propose to monitor and audit this process?

We need oversight, and until we can identify how the oversight will occur, the simple answer is to turn in the cards.

And maybe a 12 step program.

Note:  You can contact the BOE before and after the meeting tomorrow.  Preferably both.

Emails are easy, phone calls are free.  

Let Phil know that the credit card issue is out of control and embarrassing.  Tell Phil and the other Carverites to cancel the card.
