Sweetwater underwriters reel in the big one — a grand jury indictment

The CPM principal does everything for show. He clearly spent all of his money trying to create a “college going environment,” which really looks like a college carnival. If you look into the principal’s past you will find he spends freely to impress visitors at the expense of his students. I worked with him at his previous middle school where he did the same thing he is doing at CPM. Leopards don’t change their spots. We were expecting a visit from someone he wanted to impress so he poured all of the ASB funds into a “workout room” leaving our ASB account dwindled down to very little. Then, after spending all of our money he moved on. I might add that my school is located in a low income area. It is no secret across the district that he and the former CPM ASB Advisor did not see eye to eye on spending the ASB funds. While attending an event at my school he openly talked negatively about the CPM Advisor making it clear he wanted her out of the picture. It has been my experience that when this principal wants something done he doesn’t like to hear the word NO, nor does he like to be told he can’t do something. I heard the former ASB Advisor had a long and successful career at CPM prior to the new principal’s arrival interesting that she is no longer there. I hear his new ASB Advisor is a new teacher and was hand-picked by him this should be a perfect arrangement for his spending habits. It’s always nice to have a “Yes Man” on your team.
