If I had to trust a blogger, I would trust Heath Haussamen

I suspect that most blog readers would agree.

He blogs about "New Mexico Politics".

There is a very important "election" coming up.
The Albuquerque Public Schools Board of Education
is going to hire the superintendent who will determine
the course of the APS' future; a billion tax dollars and
90,000 children every year.

It is an important "election". The stakes are high.

It is a perfect opportunity for stakeholders
to participate meaningfully in a decision
that affects their interests.

During the only opportunity for stakeholders to meet the
candidates; they will not be allowed to ask a single specific
question; no matter how legitimate.

There will be no opportunity to ask one of the "outsiders"
if they will commission the audit that will end corruption
and incompetence in the leadership of the APS.

There will be no opportunity even, to place the subject of
an administrative accountability audit on the table.

If I may suggest an obligation to Mr. Haussamen,

I think you are obliged to stand on the record regarding the
upcoming town hall meetings and the APS Superintendency,
as it has every bit to do with "New Mexico Politics".

Somebody has to start the ball rolling in the blogosphere

cuz the Journal and TV medioshpere just ain't getting it.

Respectfully submitted.
