CCSD Audit? Who Would Have Thunk It?

May we have a rousing round of the "Hallelujah Chorus"? It's finally happened!

Thanks to the clarion call of an $18-million budget shortfall, the Charleston County School Board voted unanimously to authorize an outside auditor. 

The mistakes not caught by last year's trusting school board members included "anticipating $5.75 million in new revenue from Boeing" and assuming "expiration of the King Street Gateway TIF." How dumb is that? Someone hasn't been watching the store.

Dare I say that someone responsible must be Chief Financial Officer Michael Bobby? He needs to go.

There is WAY more to all of this than reported. Remember furloughs, staff cuts and no raises?

Wasn't there workshops set up by Bobby in April to address this almost exact number & the falling tax base? No CCSB members could agree on any remedies.
