Authorities accuse Long Lake Elementary School PTO Treasurer Kelly Ramsey of making off with more than $42,000 in just 2 years time. That’s a lot of money in a short period of time. They say she made about 89 transactions to carry out the cash.
Schools depend on PTOs to provide a lot of the things that school funding can’t provide. Without PTO funds, there’s no field trip to a farm. No budget for carnival night.
In a case like this, I want to ask the accused person some questions, if what they’re accused of is true. Like what was the plan? How did you think $42K could go missing without someone noticing? How does something like that start?
Ramsey has court dates later this month.
