Well if John Pendley says he was great he just must be wonderful! We all know we can trust John Pendley.
Finally someone who understands good business ethics. Too bad most business' in this country don't understand this concept anymore.
Why did they wait until one week after the election? You know they will appoint one of their cronies. I have lost all faith in the superintendents and the school boards of these many school districts. They run these districts just like a mini faction of the California state government. I feel like they think, shut up and let us God like people run things, you private sector people are too stupid to understand. Just keep voting to raise your taxes and we'll take care of everything.
Not a clearly written article - does Costello's wife already work for the District? And there is an implication that she is being considered for a new position? And somehow he feels that he needs to resign in order for her to be hired and the promotion would not be seen as a conflict of interest? I think Skidmoore may have something here - when was the promotion offered? If it was before the election, and Costello waited until after the election before resigning, was that done so the election would be out of the way and Pendley and the lame ducks can put someone in place to act as a crony without that becoming an election issue? In way too many of these School Districts, the elected Board Members serve as stooges for the Administrators - Columbia being the classic example.
The "Special Election" would cost between $2,000 to $4,000 said Auditor recorder Debi Russel. Mr. Pendley said that would cost too much. He then decided to give all full time employees a $2,000 bonus. Part time people a bonus on a sliding scale.There are about 60 employees so they will hand out over $100,000 in bonuses but $2,000 to $4,000 for the people to vote for a new board member( Pendleys Boss) is too expensive....The blatant disregard for the public by by John Pendley is shocking!The hubris of public employees is held like a badge of honor.
