NM State Statute 10-16-3. Ethical Principles of Public Service

NM State Statute 10-16-3 reads in significant part;

B. Legislators, public officers and employees shall conduct themselves in a manner that justifies the confidence placed in them by the people, at all times maintaining the integrity and discharging ethically the high responsibilities of public service.
(emphasis added)
and is available in it's entirety at link

The Albuquerque Public Schools Board of Education,
"public officers", one and all, refuse to tell the truth*.

That refusal is unethical.

It is unethical by any reasonable definition of the concept of ethical behavior. It is unethical according to the standard of conduct that the board established for, and enforces upon, students in the Albuquerque Pubic Schools.

The Albuquerque Public Schools Board of Education is not discharging ethically the high responsibilities of public service; in blatant and egregious disregard of the law.

A writ of mandamus, link, ought to compel them to tell truth.

It would be nice if a lawyer would help me prepare, pro bono,
a writ of mandamus.

It would be nice to have some help with the filing fee ($120)
as well.
*They steadfastly refuse to name a time, a day, and a place where they will stand up and answer legitimate questions, candidly, forthrightly, and honestly.

I once asked the clerk at the NM Second Judicial District Court, how many prosecutions have been pursued under
the, at least 40 year old law.

Her reply;
"None. I guess it has never been necessary."

What a hoot.

ACLU does this type of PRobono work. they have a history of going against APS and MHS previously, maybe they would do the job?
Hope so.
