Give me your money, nobody (else) has to get hurt.

Albuquerque Public Schools are failing in two aspects;
administratively and educationally.

Administratively they have failed to protect the public interests from administrative corruption and incompetence; standards of conduct and competence are inadequate and unenforceable.

Transparency is a joke; ask them if you can take a look at the report done by the independent investigator of the public corruption in the APS Police Department, link. You paid for it; it's a public record. See what they will surrender.

They have failed educationally. Most of this community's
sons and daughters leave the APS without a decent education.

The educational failure is a misapplication of resources.

A half a billion dollars worth of teachers, and their combined 100,000 years of teaching experience are being used for other than teaching.

Their combined energy and intellect, expertise and experience, are being squandered.

Never, not once, has the leadership of the APS
asked teachers;

What do you need to succeed?
The leadership of the APS is a oligarchy that exists to
perpetuate the oligarchy; education of our children is
a secondary concern.

There isn't one of them who cares enough about your
children to step up as a role model of the standards of
conduct they establish and enforce upon students.

There isn't one of them who will look you in the eye
and tell you why they aren't honestly accountable as
role models of the APS Student Standards of Conduct;
the Pillars of Character Counts!, link.

They are in cahoots with the media. Their influence over the Journal and the broadcast media has helped them hide evidence of felony criminal misconduct involving APS senior administrators, from the District Attorney for four years; long enough for statutes of limitation to expire on felony criminal misconduct.

Then Chief of APS Police Gil Lovato said;
"If the truth ever gets out, (in court) there won't be
a single senior administrator left standing."
So the leadership of the APS put him on administrative leave at full pay and benefits for half a year, just to keep him out of court.

They have usurped control over your power and your
resources. They don't intend to just give it back.

The leadership of the APS does not intend ever, to hold themselves honesty accountable to any meaningful standards of conduct and competence.

It is not in their plan ever, to respond candidly, forthrightly and honestly; your legitimate questions about your interests and their public service.

They don't intend ever, to offer you due process of your allegations against them. They are currently denying due process to more than 300 whistle blower complaints. The news knows and won't report on it.

They don't intend ever, to give you a seat at the table where decisions are made that affect your interests.

It's crunch time. Time to cowboy up.

Give me some money, and I will fight for the transparent accountability that will enable the Albuquerque Public Schools to provide the best possible education for every one of our children.

I have everything we need to champion this cause but name
recognition; no one knows me from Adam's off ox (link).

Name recognition costs money I don't have.

I need your help. Follow the link and you can use Pay Pal
or send a check to the campaign account.


I will spend your contributions frugally. If you help me spread the word, maybe there will be money left over.
We'll donate it to homeless students.

If you can't donate, help spread the word.
A few thousand votes will do it.

"All that is necessary for evil to prevail in the world,
is for good people to do nothing." Edmund Burke

I'm not saying the leadership of the APS is evil,
but when Burke wrote those words,
these are the people he was writing about.
