School Board Member Says Technology, Not Malice, To Blame For Missing Recordings

The Springfield school board member who hit the record button on closed-door discussions about former superintendent Walter Milton… only to have those recordings fail three separate times… says he’s disappointed the recordings don’t exist. 


But Scott McFarland says there’s no evidence of anything malicious, and cautions against calling the situation a “scandal.”  McFarland chalks up the missing recordings of executive session discussions to a software glitch... and doesn’t think there was any kind of “smoking gun” in the missing audio.


The Illinois Attorney General’s Office had sought the recordings to determine if the discussions violated the state’s open meetings laws.
