Comments made to the board are inappropriate | Unethical behavior at MCCCD

Taxpayers may have to foot a bigger bill to cover legal expenses related to the Maricopa Community Colleges data security breach.

“I think it’s kind of unethical to leave a firm to take your biggest client with you and plant yourself to say you’re a local law firm,” Lumm told ABC15.

It appears that the MCCCD Administration is partnering with their out of state lawyers from Wilson Elser to deceive the MCCCD Governing Board.  ABC 15 tells the story.
