Chagrin Solon Sun Editorial: Should Karen Prasser Be Punished For Not Knowing the Rules?
The editor of the Chagrin Solon Sun opines that Solon leaders have a dilemma on their hands about the Solon Center for the Arts investigation.
The editor of the Chagrin Solon Sun says in an editorial that the Solon city leaders have a dilemma on their hands in how they handle an investigation into irregularities at the Solon Center for the Arts.
Upon reviewing the documentation provided by the city, it would seem if Prasser was guilty of anything, it would be excessive naivete. There were many procedural errors she committed because she did not realize she was doing anything wrong. The question facing Solon officials as this investigation continues is to determine to what extent Prasser should be punished for these errors.
The newpaper editor goes on to ask that, if Prasser did not know the rules, why didn't city leaders teach her?
"If Prasser truly did not understand the procedures she was supposed to follow, should the city itself be culpable for not properly instructing her on the protocol beforehand?" the editor writes.
