Why do Miami-Dade School Board members Perla Tabares Hantman, Mari Tere Rojas, and Steve Gallon III want me off the Board?s Audit and Budget Advisory Committee (ABAC)? Because I speak candidly, honestly and objectively.
I have exposed a loophole in the Sunshine Law that these particular members have exploited, enabling them to have a ?mini meeting? and discuss agenda items before voting on them during an actual meeting.
Six members of the school board regularly attend ABAC meetings. They are not there to casually observe, but to literally take over the meeting.
Is this transparency in government? I think not. The intent of the ABAC is to give guidance and support on matters of accountancy, reporting, and other issues deemed appropriate for our committee.
