UPDATED July 20, 2010
It has come to my attention that the information I had posted here concerning this meeting was wrong. Let me state at once I am not pleased this happened!! As such, I have deleted that portion of the post. The part that remains is like that of the other posts found on my blog. Facts are presented, with my opinions added. This blog is my version of an OP-Ed page that can be found in any newspaper.
I am not pleased that I was misled by one who spoke to me on the phone with authority about matters that were later proved to be not accurate. Though the person did not know I was going to write a blog post about the matter under discussion, it still is a mystery how false information was imparted to me so easily. I need to state that this person has long been a competent and knowledgeable source, but it is still not clear to me how such a situation like this happened. It was based on that phone call which then led me to unfairly take to task MATC President Bettsey Barhorst. She was not in attendance at this Executive Session of the Wisconsin Legislative Audit Bureau. I am sorry to have stated otherwise.
Anyone who reads this blog knows it is not my style to mislead. I come from the old school of living life where at the end of the day the only thing I have is my good-name. That is something that was passed down to me from my depression-era dad, and it is something I strongly identify with. As such, a matter like this disturbs me greatly. While I have no problem speaking plainly about the issues, I do so from a factual background. I do not knowingly fabricate or mislead. I find that the facts of any matter are always more than enough for me to make my case.
I have deleted all the misleading information, and am most sorry this matter developed.
The Wisconsin Legislative Audit Bureau decided on Wednesday that there will be an audit of the technical school system in the state. The memo from state auditor Janice Mueller listed a series of areas that the LAB will evaluate. The one that encompasses the concerns of CP is as follows.
