The Madera Tribune has a very interesting story in the newspaper on May 17. It is a good story when the public is given selective sections of the report in their summary.
Trustee Michael Salvador took the full report to the California State Attorney Generals Office last week. It is difficult to hear that the ones exposing corruption in the district are being tainted with this summary. The full report and the audio tapes on the trustees’ interviews, I believe, are public documents since the taxpayers in the district paid for this investigation and they made the summary a public document.
Once these two items are released a new picture on the events that took place will have a different flavor to the story. Sometimes turning wrongs into rights, one has to take a punch in order to get to the truth.
The summary violated the Brown Act by exposing closed section items as well as breaking the same rules at the last board meeting May 4 over a teacher being discussed in close session with the MUSD attorney.
