Brooks leaves with $350K; who's to blame?

The Albuquerque Public Schools Board of Education voted at one point, to provide Supt Winston Brooks with a golden parachute amounting to a full three quarters of a million dollars.  They voted to extend his contract until 2016.

Four of them are up for election in 2015.  They voted to extend the superintendent's contract beyond the end of their own election to the board.  $250K of the $350K Brooks is taking, is for the year they gave him.  A year they had no business giving him.

It must have been "legal" but that doesn't mean its right.

They are Marty Esquivel, Kathy Korte, Lorenzo Garcia and David Peercy.

They sit in the office they hold because 97% of eligible voters; interest holders; stakeholders all, paid no attention to the last school board election.

The next one is next February.
