Bids? What Bids? – The Art of Evading the Public’s Questions

First you’ll see and hear the Hoover Board of Education Attorney Donald Sweeney tell the BOE that they shouldn’t answer any questions from the public during the public participation portion.

Then you’ll see and hear the BOE consider “bids” and omit any discussion of the second bid.

Then you’ll see and hear two citizens question what the bids were and Sweeney run interference to prevent the BOE from responding.

Then you’ll see and hear Superintendent Andy Craig tell a half-truth about the bid for “Transportation Services”.

What you will never see nor hear during the meeting is the BOE explaining to the public the reason the bid was needed and what “negotiations” Craig will now pursue.
