From today's Milwaukee Journal Sentinel-
The Racine Unified School District, which already has paid a private consulting firm more than $620,000 for finding savings that don't yet exist, will pay the firm nearly $700,000 more over the next five years, district documents show.
Smartest suggestion I have heard yet-
Jim Morrison, president of the Racine Taxpayers Association, said Tuesday that his organization will send e-mails to the Internal Revenue Service and the state Justice Department in support of Lucas' request for an investigation into the firm's relationship with the Racine district.
Morrison also said he will ask Racine Unified School Board members "to commit themselves wholeheartedly to getting this situation investigated fully."
The taxpayers group has asked the board to delay actions relating to the renewal of Hicks' contract until an inquiry into the firm is completed. The School Board had planned to vote on the contract this month.
