APS could end this fight any time, you know.

David Robbins could explain the apparent discrepancy between Board Policy which requires him to "review and approve" whistle blower complaints and, his refusal to review and approve of even one.

David Peercy could explain why the
role modeling clause;
In no case shall the standard of
conduct for an adult be lower than
the standard of conduct for students
was removed from the standards of conduct that apply to him personally. More importantly, he could explain why he will not conduct an open and honest discussion of their refusal to put it back.

Paula Maes could explain why she will "never agree to an audit" that would individually identify corrupt and incompetent school board members and administrators.

Marty Esquivel could explain why the impartial administrative standards and accountability audit he once demanded, is no longer in order.

Robert Lucero could explain why he tabled a motion before the board, which would have established a district policy requiring board members and administrators to answer legitimate questions about the public interests and about their public service.

He could explain to students,
in words a child can understand,
why they are expected to respond to
a legitimate question by answering candidly, forthrightly, and honestly, and why they cannot expect him, to show them what that looks like.

Winston Brooks could explain why credible evidence of felony criminal misconduct involving senior APS administrators has not been surrendered to the District Attorney for criminal prosecution.

Brad Winter could surrender a candid, forthright, and honest accounting of all of the spending at 6400 Uptown Blvd.

Linda Sink could explain why teachers have never been asked to list the support they need from the administration, in particular as that support applies to enforcing student discipline policy.

Lorenzo Garcia and Delores Griego could explain why students are given t-shirts that on their front and back read;

Stand up for what
you believe in

even if you're
standing alone
and why they can sit there now, and say nothing at all.

The Albuquerque Journal could end my fight with them as easily.

All they have to do is ask these public servants to answer these legitimate questions, and then report to voters what they find; and early enough for voters to hold these people accountable at their next election, next February.

Ironically, Journal Editor Kent Walz is listed among the
Directors of the NM Foundation for Open Government.
along side, Esquivel and Maes.

The same solution will end the fight with KOB, KOAT, and KRQE.

That Paula Maes heads the New Mexico Broadcasters Association and is personal friends with most of the heavy hitters at those stations, creates the appearance of an impropriety in their refusal to, investigate and report upon the ethics and accountability scandal in the leadership of the APS.
