More tax dollars down the drain in Esquivel escapade

More filings in federal court over APS School Board Member Marty Esquivel's several violations of my civil rights.

More filings means more operational dollars.

More operational dollars means more dollars that could have been spent in classrooms, will be spent on lawyers and litigation instead.

Without limit and without real oversight.  Esquivel and the board's self-oversight in meetings in secret, and the subordinate oversight of their underlings are not oversight; they are oxymora.

The operational dollars that Esquivel is spending can be divided into three piles;

  1. I will get one; the smallest.
  2. Our lawyers will share one, and 
  3. Esquivel's lawyer friends will share one.
Piles one and two will be spent in the people's best interests.

They are being spent in defense of the right of the people to stand up at a public forum and question the character and competence of politicians and senior public servants.  Our lawyers earn theirs by crafting such as our Response in Opposition to a Motion for Summary Judgement, link.

Pile three is being spent by Esquivel in his own interests; postponing his inevitable conviction on the complaints that have been filed against him.

Esquivel is not the only school board member who will benefit from the delay; he is their leader; the provocateur of their abandonment of their obligation to the people to spend the people's power and resources in the best interests of nearly 90,000 of this community's sons and daughters.

Pile three, for example is being spent to prevent ethical redaction of the truth about public corruption and incompetence in the leadership of their publicly funded private police force.

How exactly, is it in the best interests of students to spend operational dollars to cover up a cover up of felony criminal misconduct involving senior APS administrators?

If Marty Esquivel decides to run for
another term on the school board,
he will be endorsed by his crony,
Journal Editor in Chief Kent Walz
and the Journal.

In for a penny, in for a pound.  
81 days until the APS School Board election.
