School Boss Robert Runcie’s Many Broken Promises Overlooked

Broward School Supt. Robert Runcie

Everyone from the Sun-Sentinel to Parkland parents want Broward School Superintendent Robert Runcie removed because of his failures surrounding the Stoneman Douglas High shootings.

But Runcie failures are not confined to Parkland.

Have we forgotten the promises he made about $800 million school renovation bonds?

Runcie promises that he broke…repeatedly.

Construction is running years behind schedule and the costs have climbed by $100s of millions. Runcie’s handpicked construction chief Leo Bobadilla was shown the door in October and a new bond boss was hired.

It’s not like Runcie wasn’t warned about this outcome when he hired Bobadilla to run the bond program in October 2015.

Bobadilla had a controversial record running Houston’s $2.1 billion school construction bond program. He was blamed for huge cost overruns and delays.
