WRAL’s Cullen Browder dug into the questionable spending habits of former Granville Superintendent Tim Farley. The report included some pretty interesting stuff.
Here’s the meat of the current WRAL story:
WRAL Investigates reviewed statements for the five credit cards and found thousands of dollars in technology purchases, convertible sports car rentals, two spa charges at the Grove Park Inn in Asheville, an online order for a 12-pack of Heineken BeerTender Tubes, an Amazon Prime membership, non-itemized receipts from restaurants such as Dugans Pub, Atlantic Beer Garden and Whiskey Priest, and other purchases that appeared questionable. – WRAL, 11/5/14, Convertibles, beer tubes, spa: Auditors probing Granville schools’ spending
This report on Farely comes at about the same time that CMS Superintendent Heath Morrison has resigned amid an apparent misconduct investigation. Morrison was making somewhere around $288k, perhaps Mr. Browder will dig into him as well? Maybe into the spending habits in Charlotte Mecklenburg?
I sincerely hope Mr. Browder doesn’t stop there.

Here are some places Mr. Browder could start and I am sure expand on:
- Guilford County Schools Spends $357,448.60 On One Symposium
- Wake School Board Hires New Principal For Cary School At $131,556
- N&O Op-Ed Skips Mention Of “Strategic Plan” Cost
- NC Paying Out $1.5 Million Over 3 Years To 2 Contractors For Race To Top Monitoring
How about a look at High Ed too?
