ROCHESTER, Minn. - Rochester councilmember Michael Wojcik says Superintendent Muñoz was offered free land by a private developer to build a new middle school. Wojcik says the superintendent hid that offer from the School Board, city and public.
Wojcik is sharing a letter he received from the School Board and Superintendent last week. In the letter - the School Board claims Wojcik is publishing a false narrative that paints RPS leadership as "unethical and inept." Wojcik believes the District violated a Minnesota state statute which requires leadership meetings be open to the public.
"The contents of that letter they sent would seem to imply they both came to a consensus about sending that particular letter but also had discussions about the donated site in private undisclosed meetings which as I best I can tell is not consistent with state law," Wojcik said.
Wojcik is reaching out to the Attorney General to call attention to what he sees as a closed-door meeting without any notice.
