Those of us who serve on public boards have a duty to challenge the status quo and an obligation to constantly be asking why. If we fail to meet that obligation the results will be as predictable as they were with Enron.

Board members have a duty to challenge the status quo
In the discussions at the joint council meetings after the dissolution notice was given by Crystal, it became apparent that the failure of the query process was a major contributing factor in the decision to send the dissolution notice.
Despite having two months lead time, district staff was entirely unprepared to provide information responsive to the query at the next board meeting. It was another two months before any kind of information was provided.
Beginning in 2007, Crystal and New Hope held a series of joint council meetings to discuss the district budget. The discussion at those meetings made it clear that the district budget was only the flash point and the real issue facing the district was accountability.

Last July, Crystal submitted a query.
After one of the board discussions, the district accountant attended a work session of the New Hope City Council. He acknowledged that a reserve equal to 14 percent of the district annual budget was higher than was necessary and a reserve of 8 percent to 10 percent was adequate to meet the district needs.

Some who serve on public boards seem Nike Air Vapormax All White to define respect as always giving deference to staff and never questioning or challenging staff.
