Brooks acknowledges Armenta complaint, or did he?

I emailed a complaint to APS Supt Winston Brooks.

I complained to him about the conduct and competence of APS' Executive Director of Communications Monica Armenta.

I allege(d) that she has failed to respond candidly, forthrightly and honestly to four legitimate questions about;

  1. the hiding of the Caswell Report
  2. the denial of due process to hundreds of whistle blower complaints
  3. the abdication of the senior most role models of student standards of conduct, and
  4. the avoidance of independent review of the administration of the APS
I filed the complaint on 3/9. Brooks (or somebody with access to his email account), finally used the return receipt function on the email on 3/16.

On 3/24, I received an email from Brooks email address;
it read;
Mr. MacQuigg, I have received your email.
The carefully worded response is telling. He maintains plausible deniability. If he found himself in a witness chair he can still claim that someone else must have sent the return receipt and the email "he received" could be any email I sent him ever.

Will my complaint against Armenta see due process?

Will any whistle blower complaints ever see due process?

Will Journal readers ever see an investigation and report upon credible, self-evident in fact, allegations of an ethics and accountability scandal in the leadership of the APS?

Will TV viewers KRQE, KOAT, and KOB TV ever watch a
report on the standards and accountability crisis in the leadership of the APS?

Monica Armenta gets paid $107K a year
to be Brooks' Six. Her only job is to make
the leadership of the APS look good.

Yesterday I asked her to point to a single
audit ever done, that indicated that there
are standards and accountability for APS
administrators and board members,
high enough, and certain enough,
to protect the public trust and treasure.

She has not.

She will not.

Because she can not.

APS administrators have had a hundred years to come up with honest accountability to meaningful standards of conduct and competence.

They have not.

They will not.

They will not, because it would take character and courage
that simply do not exist anywhere in the leadership of the APS.

Or at the Journal. Or at KRQE, KOAT, and KOB TV.

Or in Mayor Berry's Office, or in Governor Martinez' Office.
