|Charter Schools, Construction Companies, and Collusion? Oh my!|
Granted, before I get too deep, let me be clear in stating that I fully understand that correlation is not causation, and that perhaps I am reading between the lines a little too much. But the rational side of me can’t help but see there are dots to be connected here and ask these questions in the process:
- Why are Susan Valdes’ biggest contributors all charter school and construction companies?
- Why would real estate developers be so interested in funneling massive amounts of money into her coffers? In fact, on a single day, July 20th of this year, she received three $1000 checks from a real estate political action committee.
- How much would it affect Susan Valdes vote on charter school contracts if she receives $1000 donations from both Jonathan K. Hage, CEO of Charter Schools USA, and Ignatio Zuleta, the co-founder of Academica, two of the largest for-profit charter school companies in the entire country, and certainly the biggest players in Florida?
