I did a little research and found out that if you call the phone number for Beck Bus, you get Durham. From Durham, I found out that they provide the bus service for Mt. Vernon Township High School. Then I did a little research into school board member regulations and they found that board members are not to have an interest in school contracts. Need I say more?
Well, I’m going to say a little more. Bill is the advisory committee chairman for the Schweinfurth Foundation. That foundation has given grant money to various programs at the high school. One of the recent grants was for the new theater. Bill presented a check on behalf of the foundation.
Is it any wonder the high school board appointed Bill? He’s certainly proved he’s community minded and wants to help the school. The problem is a school board is supposed to have ethics. Picking Mr. Beck might not be totally illegal, but it sure is unethical. That brings us back to building a new school and some of the shenanigans that have gone on regarding that, but I said I wouldn’t go there; this time.
