CVIT Superintendent admits wrongdoing?

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmailby feather

I would like to thank Pete Guzman, the Superintendent of Cobre Valley Institute of Technology, for making my point for me in his response to my allegations that the CVIT misused taxpayer’s funds. His response was exactly what I was talking about in my recent letter to the editor. He admits there was wrongdoing and admits he and the Board did nothing about it. They made a decision to wait and see if the State would catch them and then they might address the “illegal expenditure”. Now that’s what I call real leadership and honesty.

He tries to cover his tracks by saying someone at the State level said it was okay. That’s total nonsense. They said it was okay because they assumed that the stipend was in the project. It was not in the project and the State finally admitted that. That’s why the auditors cited the District for the “ineligible expenditure”. Pete Guzman is in total denial and any further attempts at trying to get him or the Governing Board to come clean is futile. They have no respect for themselves or for those they represent and I am not going to change that.

I hope Copper Basin News follows through on Guzman’s invitation to sit down with them and look at his documentation. I would only ask that I have the opportunity to present my information at this meeting as well. I would welcome the idea of a neutral party looking at the facts of this case.

Lastly, I will not respond, in this format, to anymore of Pete Guzman’s remarks. Frankly they don’t deserve to be dignified with any more media coverage. Hiding behind helping kids to cover up your reckless behavior is despicable.
