Your letter to the editor published April 25, 1994.
Harry, you have lost all credibility from my perspective. You haven't got a clue as to what you are talking about.
1) Sour grapes - you are the sour grapes loser
2) Two years prior to Nolin's arrival the budget was quite readable. It had been hammered out by a committee during the Moeser administration. Charles Anderson's administration refused any input, but even his budget was definitely readable.
3) The $1.6 million of red ink was forecast 6 months before June 1992, by your pal Pete Wilcoxon;-almost to the penny.
4) Mr. Stauber's accusations were true as explained by Mark Dayton's team. They were true but not of a criminal nature from a state perspective. They were permitted because Duluth had a "dysfunctional school board" (Dayton's own words.)
5) All debt above the $1.6 million belongs to Nolin. A budget was in place for the 1992-93 school year. He is the one who did not follow it. Similarly he has not followed his own budget for 1993-94. He has not even followed his own strategic plan.
Get your facts straight Harry. You've lost my support.
P.S. I want my book back. Put it in my mailbox sometime when I'm not home. I
don't want to talk to you.
