Commissioners, Michigan Commission for the Blind
Dear Mr. Cannon and Commissioners,
I am writing today to ask some questions and to get some detailed financial breakdowns
relative to the following LARA expenditures
Found on DTMB transparency web site at:
“Payments to NEW HORIZONS REHABILITATION SERVICES for fiscal year 2012
Click on a agency name to view payments to this vendor by this agency.
Table with 2 columns and 2 rows
LICENSING AND REGULATORY AFFAIRS
Note these are expenditures denoted in this current State of Michigan Fiscal Year alone
and I’ll send a separate request for detailed accounting of MCB expenditures made in FY
2011 and FY 2010 which anyone in the public has the absolute right to and which should
be sent to commissioners routinely as well.
Regardless I wish for you to break out the numbers for MCB payments made to New
Horizons for I realize some of these expenditures are related to the Michigan
Rehabilitation Services. And I wish to know what they are for.
In other words send me the data related to job development, job shadowing, transition
services, vocational assessments and the like made with this Community Rehabilitation
Program and send me the authorizations of same.
Do not tell me that you or MCB cannot do this and don’t throw a FOIA [petard at me
either. Your comments made to Commissioners relative to not being able to produce such
data as this and even intakes, closures, etc. displays your arrogant disregard for your
fiduciary obligations and your stark and utter violations of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973
as amended, PA 260 and basic principles of transparency let alone basic notions of
competence of a GS-19 making $125,000 per year and directing this critical State agency.
I, also wish for this information in fully accessible format pursuant to obligations under
Title II of the Americans with Disabilities Act (Title II, subpart e, communications) as I
am indeed blind. To wit send the requested information is either Word attachments or
plain text enclosures to my e-mail address listed above. And again I suggest that you
ensure such information is made routinely available on MCB’s own web site in html
