From the Gettysburg Address

…that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain ...and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.

Public servants and their public service are a manifestation of that government.

The people cannot easily wield their power or spend their resources; except through public servants. It is their responsibility to spend our power and resources in our interests.

The people’s power and resources in the APS are not being used in the public interest. Instead they have accumulated at the top of a buraucracy. They are now being used to dodge accountability for the failure to protect the public interests from incompetence and corruption there; and for betraying the public trust.

Your power will be used to see that the allegation is ignored. There never will be an impartial audit of the character and competence of the leadership of the APS.

They are stonewalling because the only defense for an indefensible position is to hide it. The truth is their Achilles’ heel. They can protect themselves only by suppressing the truth.

As you can see by the record, the failure to investigate or report upon a single substantive election issue, APS leadership has friends in those who control the media. They cannot deny it, they are damned by the record.

Their effort to obfuscate legitimate discourse during an election is wrong. It violates any meaningful standard of conduct.
