This can’t be good at all! Not sure how I missed this one. But it is out there. Delaware State Auditor Tom Wagner publicly announced the Indian River audit inspection will be released before their referendum. The November 22nd referendum could definitely swing one way or another based on this audit. From what I’m hearing, it is NOT going to be pretty. It could be a game-changer for the district with very bad things coming out. Remember the whole Joey Wise thing up in Christina ten years ago? Think along those lines. Christina still gets bashed for that one even though it happened a decade ago. This one will stick with Indian River for a long time. And while everyone is playing the “Who will be the next Delaware Secretary of Education” game, I think Indian River Superintendent Susan Bunting will be off that list the second this audit comes out. The last thing citizens of this district would want to happen is a referendum victory and then an audit inspection coming out that would have caused votes to shift to a no.
