IS SCHOOL BOARD TRUSTEE LEN SARVER IN FINANCIAL TROUBLE?

IS SCHOOL BOARD TRUSTEE LEN SARVER IN FINANCIAL TROUBLE?

Published by Samuel L. Rivers
It has been one week now since news broke of the asbestos scandal involving Mount Vernon School Chief Judith Johnson. Johnson still isn’t forthcoming and still has not provided board members with asbestos reports even though the reports have been made public on this site. Instead she has been hiding behind school board attorneys and using tactics to stall and deny information to the public and school board members.

Johnson treats board members as if they are her servants and her employees. Johnson lacks integrity and accountability. Three guidance counselors personally hired by Johnson are now facing criminal charges for changing test scores in Peekskill, Johnson’s last place of employment.

Judith Johnson must come clean with the taxpayers and the children of Mount Vernon. Why hasn’t she released the reports to the public or to School Board Trustees? Are our children at risk for asthma and lung cancer?

We must get to the root cause analysis on exactly how these problems came to exist in city schools and why they went unaddressed for such a long time. Mount Vernon Exposed will now begin to connect the dots and show the public how long the corruption has been permeating the Mount Vernon City School District.

Money disappearing from school budgets and going into a slush fund for Superintendents started with the hire of Assistant Superintendent of Business Timothy Costello, a very close friend of embattled school board trustee Len Sarver. Len Sarver stands accused alongside Mount Vernon School Chief Judith Johnson of purposely hiding asbestos reports from the public and steering lucrative school contracts to vendors favorable to both.

Mount Vernon Exposed is pleased to announce that work was done at Cecil H. Parker Elementary School to remediate the mold issue. Sources have reported to Mount Vernon Exposed that crews have been working feverishly day and night to cover up any trace of mold and water damage after it was made public that Parker school has been neglected since 2005 and didn’t address deficiencies found by inspectors from the New York State Department of Health. However, sources confirmed to Mount Vernon exposed that friable asbestos wasn’t disposed of properly in accordance with applicable state laws.

Many questions remain regarding the removal of mold and the abatement of asbestos at Cecil H. Parker Middle School. For starters, who removed the mold? Was this put out for competitive bid? Did Judith Johnson and school board trustees Len Sarver unjustly enrich themselves by awarding lucrative construction and electrical contracts to vendors of their choosing? Was the mold and asbestos removed by a licensed professional?

Let’s get back to Timothy Costello. Mr. Costello is a crook and a sheister in every sense of the word. Costello was hired by former Mount Vernon Superintendent W.L. Sawyer, another crook who was more concerned about having sexual relations with his subordinates than the education of the children. Sawyer was cited for having an improper relationship with an employee of the Mount Vernon City School District.

Costello, a failure, never surpassed the $100K salary mark in life. That is until he came to the Mount Vernon City School District to drink from the public till. Costello’s salary prior to arriving in Mount Vernon was $92,000. Today Costello receives a whopping $190,000+ salary and benefits courtesy of Mount Vernon taxpayers. Not bad Timothy.

Timothy purchased his current house at 4 Alameda Place in 2007 for $478,000. In recent weeks, Mount Vernon Exposed has received complaints from taxpayers in Costello’s neighborhood stating his property assessment is well below the average that homeowners in Costello’s neighborhood pay for similar structures with the same square footage.

Costello also receives several other perks not afforded to other employees of the Mount Vernon City School district. Mr. Costello receives 100% medical coverage courte
