Isn't it obvious that Mr. Holtrey and Mr. Baker ignored the legal by-laws and policies that were set to hold the boosters fundraising business accountable to the school districts elected officials?See criteria for Athletic Director specific duties. The AD IS RESPONSIBLE For The budget, ticket sales, fundraising, etc.
On page 13 of document below.
When Mr. Holtrey was AD, did he do any of this? Is he somewhat responsible for the breakdown of the fundraising system? It appears that at least partial responsibility rests with Mr. Holtrey for his tenure as AD.
And why did Mr. Holtrey and Mr. Baker run the boosters fundraising business their way, instead of the right way?
Because they could get away with it!...but why?
...because the five BOE elected officials prior to 2010 were too lazy to serve our school children and community in the best interest of all; and therefore, just rubber stamped everything that Baker/Dettwiller/Long/Holtrey told them to do at public meetings.
Not one BOE member questioned Baker/Dettwiller/Long/Holtrey; until Kelly Kohls came on board in 2010 and started asking questions, exercising strong principles of representing our children's best interest first....
This close knit community of status quo "supporters" doing business as usual, could only hold on to their corrupt power IF there were no questions raised about their unethical and illegal practices. The first "crack" in the rotten eggs came with Craig Colston resigning in disgrace; and then the rotten egg stinkers really started cracking as Dettwiller, Baker, and Holtrey followed...
Now that we know the truth;
why were these close-knit community members protesting on July 31 "against the board" doing what's right for our school children and community as a whole?
Why do these close-knit community bullies continue wasting taxpayers time and money at our business meetings "making the case".... that our new board majority should continue the same old failed leadership as our former board members and former school administrators? Like that's going to happen!
