Direct Knowledge of a Grand Jury Investigation of GUHSD

Doug Deane: “I have seen correspondence between the Grand Jury and one of those who are being called to testify.”

To the editor:

GUHSD Trustee [Jim] Kelly recently stated that the assertion by Trustee [Priscilla] Schreiber that there is a Grand Jury investigation into the use of Propositions H & U bond funds by the district is bogus. 

Kelly was quoted as saying that it is “an old political trick to have your surrogates demand an investigation of your political opponent, right before an election, and then go to the media and announce that your opponent is under investigation.”

I believe that what Trustee Kelly is saying is that Trustee Schreiber concocted the story about a Grand Jury investigation in order to affect the upcoming election results.

I have direct knowledge that there is indeed a Grand Jury investigation, and I have seen correspondence between the Grand Jury and one of those who are being called to testify. 

That person was asked to appear at the Grand Jury Room in mid-November. 

Grand Jury witnesses are asked in advance not to make any announcements concerning the fact that they have been asked to testify. 

It is my belief (and my belief only) that Trustee Schreiber has already been asked to testify, but she cannot say so because of voluntary confidentiality restrictions placed on her by the Grand Jury.

I would also not be surprised to learn that other GUHSD Trustees will be appearing before the Grand Jury.

Gary Woods; you were vocal in 2008... where are you in 2012? What is your response? None? A $20 million site investment... people booted ff this property by eminent domain, construction costs at historical lows... a waiting list of new ADA funded students are in the wings, yet they aren't going to go forward. Why? More lies? Or is in existence, there any substance to the spin, which you'd wish to share... just rhetoric?

Congratulations to our re-elected GUHSD top vote getting incumbent Priscilla Schreiber, and our very welcome new Board Trustee Jim Stieringer!

A MINDFUL POINT OF ORDER: I qoute the Patch, "Stieringer, also responding to a Patch query, noted that he had expressed strong support for the construction of a high school in Alpine. And he said he respected differences among the current board members, “all of whom have my highest respect. I applaud their positive action in having procured the site for the proposed school.” But he said he found it distressing that district Superintendent Ralf Swenson has “arbitrarily withdrawn the building plans submitted to the State Architect [Office]. If that allegation turns out to be true, I am certain that all five board members will demand to know why that was done.” If elected, he said, “I would make engendering collegiality my first priority. As part of that effort I would make every effort to convince my new colleagues that we should promptly move toward construction of the voter-approved school. Weaver told Patch that even though “my opinions are cause to be suspect” because he is a school board candidate, “I respond because history makes the case strong that this GUHSD board majority is disingenuous to their mission of governing to the needs of the high school district, as best served.” He said he was tired of false hope and asserted that the current board has “lied, twisted truth and created delays that should have succeeded long ago to accomplish their goal—kill the HS12 project.” THE VOTERS HAVE SPOKEN, AGAIN!

This GUHSD Board and Administration is a BIG DISAPPOINTMENT! Last night, At the regular monthly second Thursday Bd. meeting, Nov 8th, they voted on 18 recommendations proposed by Superintendent Ralf Swenson in regard to the Bond projects. The 18th Recommendation was to pull plans on the 12th HS, and not continue to fund the project until further action is taken by the Board. Little discussion took place. I spoke, explaining that the Granite Hills HS is now going to have to be modernized for 2,800 students, this makes no good sense, 600 of those students should not be provided accommodations at GHHS, save that money, to put towards the 12th HS... The GUHSD Bd didn't listen, my comments fell on deaf Administration and Gov. Bd. ears. I also reminded them that the Bd. Makeup is likely to soon change, that a vote on this should wait. They ignored me, this Bd is unethical, unprofessional, and even laughable as they disregard good protocol, and best Governing Board practices.
