Trustee Stiff and the ABC Trustees put SJHHS stadium on hold pending outcome of district-wide facilities needs assessment
Nov 07, 2007
Duane Stiff, The Orange County Register “I’m in favor of finishing San Juan Hills. But we’ve got so many needs that we could fill a book. We’ve got 50-year-old schools that aren’t getting their fair share.”
CUSD school board member Duane Stiff moved to table a staff recommendation to put a proposed football stadium at San Juan Hills High School out for contractor bids. The ABC Reform Trustees joined Stiff and passed the motion 4-3.
Stiff drives effort to indemnify trustees; makes no distinction based on scope of employment or alleged criminal activity

Duane Stiff, The Orange County Register "Jim Fleming thought he was indemnified but he wasn't. That's what brought this to my attention. You're serving the public and putting your entire estate at risk."
Thanks for clearing that up for us, Duane. A lot of people have been confused about that "serving the public part" of what Fleming was doing when he got caught. Maybe you could stop thinking about protecting your own hide long enough to explain how this is good for the district and the constituents you are supposed to be "serving." Stiff is a Fleming-era CUSD trustee.
Stiff rebuffs calls for his resignation, taunts reformers and reveals his arrogant, Fleming-era roots

Duane Stiff, The Orange County Register “You know, I have a year and a half to go. If you don’t want me on here, go start another recall."
We have a better idea. Do the honorable thing - resign now and save everyone, including the children, the trouble. But given Stiff's out-of-touch track record, his repeated failure to act in the interests of constituents and his willingness to join Benecke, Draper and Darnold in cover ups, it's surprising he woke up long enough to suggest the next best thing. Stiff is one of the four Fleming-era holdover trustees.

Duane Stiff, The Los Angeles Times "We just have to get all this behind us."
Hopeful, but unrealistic words by Trustee Stiff, who shows no concern for truly getting "all this behind us" by holding Fleming and other staff accountable for the patent offenses they committed.
