St. Joseph CFO Beau Musser
At the time of the suspension, Musser told Ballotpedia, "So my efforts were to protect taxpayer dollars and do what was right, and I was punished for it."
Musser had also uncovered other improprieties, including 4,000 gallons of missing gasoline, cars purchased without board approval and a sloppy system for approving contracts with employees. "Nobody over the years, until I got there, basically stood up and said wait a second, you know, this is wrong," Musser said.
The St. Joseph School District, which oversees 11,000 students, would not make anyone available for an interview after Musser restarted his job as CFO.
Czerwonka offered this statement: "We welcome back Mr. Musser to the St. Joseph School District. The focus of the St. Joseph School District remains the same: to educate each child for success. It is important for our leadership team to move forward together to continue the work of this district."
