(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) One of the original whistleblowers into the St. Joseph School District released a Facebook video Sunday morning endorsing Proposition 1.

Beau Musser, former CFO, left the district in 2015 after settling a wrongful termination lawsuit for $450,000. Musser's discovery of improper stipends being paid to district employees helped launch an FBI investigation.

In the video posted on the Move St. Joseph Forward Facebook page, Musser said after meeting with Superintendent Dr. Robert Newhart and Director of Finance Wes Metz, he is "confident things are being done the right way."

"I was faced with an important decision about the future of our community and had the courage to do the right thing," Musser said.

Voters will decide the fate of Prop. 1 on Tuesday. The proposed $1.15 tax levy without a sunset clause would raise $11.5 million yearly in new funding for the district and would raise taxes on a $100,000 home about $18 a month.

The top weather story for this upcoming workweek will be the warming temperatures that will begin today. We are waking up to another cold morning in the upper teens to lower 20s. There also is little bit of patchy fog developing so you may need to take it a bit easy on the roads and leave a bit early if you do encounter some low visibility. Monday will be sunny but cold and below average with highs in the upper 30s.
