Sorry Evans saga costs us all
The sorry saga between Freddie Evans and the Government can be summed up as follows:
He is hired as Commissioner of Education and successfully makes it through his probationary period. Then he is, almost, sort of, “fired”, his professional reputation is tarnished, the Government pays him six figures in “mea culpa” damages, and then gives him another job.
Dr Evans negotiated very well, don’t you think? And, by the way, he deserves it.
We, on the other hand — because we continue to accept it — also deserve to keep having our taxpayer dollars thrown out the window and wasted on issues that can be attributed to gross government administration incompetence without any consequences.
One hundred thousand dollars here, $800,000 there — that’s the cost of three new buses. The list goes on.
