NM FOG Executive Committee to review APS public participation policy

APS has a new public participation in public meetings policy.  The policy, the brainstorm of APS School Board Member Marty Esquivel and cronies in a local law firm, is manifestly unconstitutional.

The only thing Esquivel's APS lawyers could hope to gain from their participation in the creation of this monstrosity will be the hundreds of thousands of dollars they will make defending (unsuccessfully) Esquivel's policy from inevitable lawsuits.

APS lawyers will win even in losing - winning and losing pay the same; very well.  Reason enough apparently, for them to back Esquivel's play.

The policy has been circulated to the NM FOG board for review.
A response is expected this week.

I had to laugh when Marty claimed he was looking out for the districts finances when he agreed to the $350,000 for Brooks. He is gonna save us from legal fees? Please!
