REFERENDUM OPTIONS - SELECTED COMMITTEE RAISES EYEBROW


CFAC-2 COMMITTEE MEETING
MONDAY, AUGUST 4
5:30 P.M.
Education Service Center – Board Room
WEST BEND


A little info about the committee..............

John Duwell (school board member) and Randy Stark (WB Mutual Facilities Manager) work together.

Todd Miller
(school board member and co-chair of CFAC -2 committee) and Rod Moore (West Bend Clinic Facilities Supervisor) work together.

Kraig Sadownikow rubs elbows with John Duwell and Randy Stark as he is the developer from American Design & Build Inc. who built the Hampton Inn & Suites and a 24,000-square-foot office building at the intersection of Paradise Drive and South 18th Avenue on West Bend's southwest side. It's located just east of the West Bend Mutual Insurance Co. headquarters.

It seems that those who stand to make a profit if a referendum is passed (the roofer, Mr. Marquardt, and the developer, Mr. Stark) are on this team. It also seems that there is a conflict of interest with the hand-selected Stark and Moore, who are board member co-workers.

Can't say that I agree with your perception that some of the members stand to profit from the passage of a referendum, without proof of a prior or future $$ contract with the district. I do feel Mr. Marquardt is a good choice - I recall that he brought a certain healthy fact-based skepticism to last year's referenda discussion.

I do agree with your perception of the way these committees are formed - the term "incestuous" comes to mind. It seems like the district has a certain "comfort zone" that only selected people are allowed to enter. Lip service is paid to the general populance -they might get a chance to serve on some "input" committees, attend public "presentions", maybe get a response (if they get a response) to emails with a "thank you for your valuable input". Point is, it's kind of like a high school clique. I laughed when I saw that video - somehow they think that the "regular joes" are going to "follow" these "leaders" because of who their community standing.
