Editor’s Note: The Morning Report today incorrectly characterized our story about the connection between a county human resources official and her husband’s law firm. The official did not recommend that legal business go to her husband’s firm.
She recommended to the superintendent whether outside legal help was needed. When the County Office ultimately did use outside legal help for human resources issues, that work has ultimately gone to her husband’s firm 99 percent of the time since 2005. We regret the error and will be working hard to make sure our stories are reliably summarized in the Morning Report.
