Some people might be under the impression that I seek to convince everyone that the District is a poorly managed public agency. This is not the case. I seek to provide insight into my personal observations and allow others to make their own determination. I would prefer that every reader harbors an overwhelming sense that all is right in the District and that my concerns are but a drop in a bucket. I merely seek acknowledgement of the drop and the bucket.
As Americans, we have reached a stage in our development where we commonly mistake ignorance for not taking a position. I advocate for the free discussion of information and the elective adoption of views and opinions based upon that information. I believe that opinions are only formed when information is available and understood. As a visitor to this blog site, you are free to read, understand and disregard all that is written. As long as the information had a moment of consideration, that is all that I seek. You are free to cast it aside and get back to other matters as quickly as you like.
I recently had a conversation with a man in Lynnwood. He was unwilling to read a single entry in the blog because it would be biased. Quite honestly, I doubt I could find a less intellectually-receptive individual on this planet. As a population, we gobble up drivel and slop like our existence as a species relied upon it. We seem so utterly transfixed on superficial hype and unengaged in local, meaningful issues that directly impact the health and well-being of our families. We spend hours each day following the lives of celebrities and spend precious moments reading to our children.
In my humble opinion, there is no greater cause in our community than how we educate our children. They will be making choices for us when we release our grasp on governance. How a school district chooses to spend our property tax dollars on the provision of public education for our children should be of critical importance to all of us.

Utterly transfixed and unengaged.

Your statement was well written and fair to all who read the ESD Blog. It is important to know where our tax dollars are going,not only for parents, but for senior citizens who struggle to make ends meet, but willing to pay taxes to educate children, who are our future leaders.
All I want is some acountability for some of the F@** ups. I don't want Marla to lose her job when she screws up. Please, thats not Fair. Thats why we need a outside party to come in and clean this mess up. But when there's PORN in the district & PEOPLE, cover it up, I have a problem with that or abusing sick leave & vacation.
PLEASE UPPER MANAGEMENT STAND UP & SAY "WE WON'T STAND FOR THIS".
I just want us( you me & the District) to do the right thing.
In private industry business managers lose their jobs for mismanaging millions of dollars. What is so different here?
Just because you work for a public agency doesn't mean you should be immune to punitive action.
The district's response to the most recent audit finding was that two people were going to start counting the cash at the ESC. Thanks to the fine leadership in the business office, the district has thumbed their nose at the auditor and has only one person. How many years, audit findings, and stolen funds is it going to take for the school board and Nick Brossoit to see that MM sees herself as the queen of the world? She is destroying the district's reputation all by herself!
I think the person in the vault as well as her supervisor and the person incharge of her play a major part in not following the policy of two people counting money. The Business Service Department upstairs needs a major management overhaul.
What's the point of having locked money bags, when you allow funds to be transported in plastic bags? I know thats a silly question. Maybe umbrella boy could put a little thought into that. For crying out loud, could there be a greater invite? Thug gets to count his money before he puts the gun to my head. SWEET!
But the supervisor of the person in the vault is being groomed for management! Is one of the qualifications that you thumb your nose at state auditors? That's right; she is only imitating her supervisor (he's the one in a position created for him by MM - see the "diary of MM" entry in the blog). Let your true character shine through honey! You're doing a great job learning MM's management style with your playing favorites and intimidation skills.
