Marty Esquivel's website

School Board Candidate Marty Esquivel has a campaign website; link.

It is unbelievable.

Esquivel bills himself as "accountable"

By what stretch of the imagination?

Is he willing to be held honestly accountable as a role model of the APS Student Standards of Conduct; the Pillars of Character Counts!?

Is he willing to be held honestly accountable to any standard of conduct at all that requires him to tell the ethically redacted truth?

Can he point to clear and unequivocal standards of conduct and competence that apply to his public service?

More importantly, can he point to a system under which a legitimate complaint about his conduct or competence, can be filed and be guaranteed due process?

Can he point to an impartial system under which he can be held accountable, that is powerful enough to hold him accountable, even against his will?

If he could, he would.

At this moment he is denying due process to more than 300 whistle blower complaints, at least two of which will lead to him personally.

Is he willing to look you in the eye, raise his right hand
and swear that he will tell you the truth, the whole truth
and nothing but the ethically redacted truth (so help him God) about the public interests and about his public service?

Is he willing to point to a time, a day and a place where he will stand and respond any legitimate questions about the public interests and his public service, by answering candidly, forthrightly, and honestly?

It is pretty obvious that he is not.

When the question is; will you tell the truth?
any answer except yes, means no.
Stonewalling means no.

How "accountable" is someone who cannot summon the character and the courage to hold himself, within his public service, honestly accountable to meaningful standards of conduct and competence?

The first ethical use of power is to ensure that the power
cannot be abused, ever, by anyone. Esquivel has not only
failed to protect your power and resources from being abused,
he is himself abusing them.

With the apparent blessing of his crony Kent Walz.
This can't be a bed of roses for Walz; before he can report
credibly on the APS ethics and accountability scandal,
he first must report credibly on his failure to report credibly
on that scandal, heretofore.

I could ask Esquivel those questions face to face at the candidate forum, except that he has ordered the APS Police Force to arrest me if I insist upon exercising my constitutionally protected human right to participate.

The Chief, Steve Tellez, has
already signed off. He intends
to have me arrested if I violate
the illegal restraining order.

OMG what a crock his website is. Any teacher in his district can tell you in a minute how little he does, even for the schools that house his offspring. We are buying our own paper, chalk, hand sanitizer and Kleenex for the classroom. He is a despicable person and politician who is only looking out for himself!

Wonder if the APS techno geeks were so busy building his website they forgot to renew Tienet, (APS's special education life link) which threw the entire dept under the bus a week before break!
