Re: Another good use of school fundsThe irony of it all -- last year I
actually attended a confernce that he was also pseudo-attending in Orlando,
Florida -- an Annenberg event on, believe it or not, "accountability." Each
state had to send a delegation of different stakeholders -- I was the
"parent." Anyway, I dutifully got there early, did all my reading and
attended all the sessions, while Supt Bunn and his 2 deputies (who also
have had ethics problems) skipped out on the introductory events to go to
Disneyworld and Epcot Center. And they had arrived early! It smelled funny
then..... but that was before the newspaper blew it open. And he managed to
get the number of violations knocked down....at one point it was up to 2799!
By the way, in a prior life he was a legislator who served as chairman of
the Oregon Government Ethics Commission.
It just gores me when they are attacking students that this guy pulls this
stuff and tries to blame tardiness and bad bookkeeping. And how does that
play with the 10th grader who is late with his homework? Procrastination?
Tell that to the teacher. Recall this guy's ass.

Just another example of what happens when the accountability gurus aren't
held accountable, right?

telephones for personal business.
The Government Standard and Practices Commission said its initial
investigation found that School Superintendent Stan Bunn repeatedly

The case will be decided in Marion County Circuit Court, an option Bunn
chose rather than seeking an administrative hearing. If found guilty, he
faces a fine of up to $1,000 for each of the 1,433 charges.
Bunn said he kept sloppy records but did not break the law.
"It was inappropriate that I procrastinated. but it was not an ethics
violation," Bunn told the commission.
The panel also accused Bunn of using a state-owned car for commuting to
and on personal trips.
Bunn said he believes his car use was appropriate and that other school
chiefs were assigned state-owned cars for regular use.
The investigation began after The Oregonian disclosed Bunn's possible
