The root of the problem with the EPISD board is that they let the top executive run them instead of them running him. Dr. Garcia told them how to vote and they did what he said. He made their life easy right up until he turned them into public enemy #2 (Larry Medina is still #1).
The pension board - who voted to show confidence in a guy who has clearly broken the rules - is the EPISD in so many ways. The only difference - the actions taken by this guy are enriching them in the long run. They may have some major legal problems coming.
Read Evan Mohl's latest and greatest piece HERE and notice the vote split. The people on the board who don't get any benefit from it voted against Stanton. The guys who have been getting a direct benefit from Stanton's likely COLA shenanigans voted confidence in the guy. There's a conflict of interest here and I think someone is going to end up in jail.
What's worse - working cops, firefighters and EMS techs are being cheated out of their retirement.
Evan Mohl is a great reporter, by the way.
