What goes around comes around

During the candidate debates, we were expected to respond to even the most complex issues in two minutes or less; often only a minute, the last time, one minute to respond to six questions and while being translated.

On several occasions during the debates,
Marty Esquivel complained to the audience that he was not able to make his point in such a short amount of time.

So Mr Esquivel, now that you know how it feels, are you going to treat the public forum at school board meetings with any more respect?

His intentions are is self evident.

He intends to extend Winston Brooks' contract before the new board members take their seats.

Does that sound like respect for your right
to sit at the table where that decision will be made?

During "open government lawyer" Marty Esquivel's service on the school board, the public forum has gone from two minutes every two weeks to, two minutes every two weeks and you get arrested if you insist upon asking an inconvenient question or two.

It used to be three minutes, and nobody got arrested.
