I just called Jonathan Starkey, Governor Carney’s Communications Director. I asked him flat-out what Governor Carney is doing about the Susan Bunting situation. I received silence. I then advised Starkey we are now seeing 105.9 articles being removed from Google searches and my Facebook post being reported as spam last week. His official response: “No comment.”
I let Starkey know there would be more coming out and this is just making the Governor look worse. He thanked me for my call.
Seriously? Carney better get his head out of the sand and act on this. We have a sitting Secretary of Education, at a Cabinet level position, with allegations of knowing about widespread financial theft and parent complaints about extremely egregious behavior from Patrick Miller, and Starkey gives me a “no comment”?
I thought about the Facebook spamming and the 105.9 article disappearing from Google. The fact that it is disappearing shows they do not want it out there. It isn’t a case of it being untrue and they know it. They are actively trying to suppress the information and preventing people from seeing it. In the grand scheme of things, a Delaware Secretary of Education knowing about this stuff isn’t earth-shattering news for America.
This is my hunch: Bunting is just the tip of the iceberg. It was just last Friday the Delaware Dept. of Justice sentenced a former DOE employee to probation for stealing grant money. Patrick Miller was doing the same thing. How rampant is this? How many education dollars have been stolen over the years? I believe this is what they don’t want us doing. They don’t want us knowing they have been powerless to stop it so they ignore it and pray it goes away. The people of Delaware aren’t idiots. As I told Starkey, I’m not giving up on this.
If you have ANY information about foul play with Delaware education funds, anywhere, be it a district, charter school, or the DOE, anything, let me know. I promise confidentiality. But it is time for the shattered puzzle pieces to come together so we have a clear picture. As taxpaying citizens, we need to know what is going on. Enough is enough. No more. If they want a war, they just got one.
One thought on “Governor Carney’s Communications Director Jonathan Starkey On Susan Bunting: “No Comment””
Secret meetings and secret emails are the way the current governor conducts business. His dismantling of the efficient bus hub at Rodney Square is complete with an almost total redaction of his FOIA resopnse of his email communicztions with important people. Why does Stargate and Taylor (the law firm that took over the Public Building on the Square) give Sen Coons so much money each year? This buys influence including, or is it precluding, public use of our Square.
The Coalition to Return Bus Service to Rodney Square would like the public to stand tall at ally on Thursday August 9, 2018 1:30PM at Rodney Square, 10th & King Streets in Wilmington.
