Brian Morris has history of financial problems
In a story in today's paper, we detail some of the financial problems that have plagued Brian Morris in the past decade. The chairman of the city school board, who resigned this week to take a $175,000 job as deputy chief executive officer of the schools, has been the subject of dozens of lawsuits and bad debt claims. Morris has many supporters who say that he has done a remarkably good job of guiding the board over the past three years.
His new job has already generated a lively discussion on a previous post on this blog. What do readers think about his background? Does it matter if top officials in the government, in this case the school system, have had financial troubles?
