Is it too important a decision to be left up to voters?
If the truth about extravagant spending at 6400 Uptown Blvd were exposed now, the passage of bond issues and mill levies would be threatened, perhaps. It depends upon the truth. Though if they have been spending well, efficiently and effectively, they would be flaunting the books, not hiding them.
Voters will not know the truth about whether board member's chairs, to be sat in twice a month for two hours, cost taxpayers $800 a piece, because APS Supt Winston Brooks, despite his commitment to candor, forthrightness and honesty with voters,
has taken a different path.
Voters will not know that Brooks won't, or can't tell them how money was spent in their castle keep because no one it going to tell them. Not any of Brooks' and the board's cronies in the establishment's media. They aren't telling voters that APS Supt Winston Brooks reneged on the token of good faith and transparency for voters.
Unfortunately for their taxpaying audiences, they won't be telling them after the election either. That because then they'd have to explain why they didn't tell them about it before the election, when it could have made a difference.
The outcomes of three elections are being manipulated by powerful people in the leadership of the APS and the media.
There, I said it.
