It doesn’t make sense

I was struck by the phrase “awarding grant money remains unclear” in the story about the DougCo commissioners’ $10 million dollar fund for school safety.

This lack of transparency begs several questions. What special skills do the commissioners possess that would allow them to make decisions regarding mental and physical safety in a school setting? I acknowledge Ms. Thomas’ prior law enforcement experience, but that does not carry over to the modern day security and mental health challenges. My other concern is how did the DougCo commissioners insert themselves in a school system where there are elected leaders?

Holding the money bag does not an expert make, but it sure raises concerns about whom the commissioners may “favor” with coins.
