All my lawyers
Shades of the Ed Schoenenberger story from his brief tenure as the county's chief assessment officer. I really had begun to wonder if he really existed, so off-grid he has been, but it turns out Ed is still out there (though he still has a far less public online presence and schedule than everyone's friend BK). I mean really out there. South Dakota no less.
I wonder... Has anyone ever gone and audited Ed's contract? $80K a year to rarely even be in town and he himself all but says his job was to not get stuff done. yet there is some surprise over the current machinations? Our own denial is our biggest enemy. Poor guy was not even effective at being a whistleblower, but there has to be some story there worthy of follow up. Paul vO's story there was not followed up by anyone to the best of my knowledge.
Rumor has it there is a new controller just elected who might have some purview over how county funds have been expended.
