I was the 657th person to sign the petition

There is an online petition, link, to remove APS Supt. Luis Valentino.  I was the 657th person to sign.

As part of the process, signers can explain why they signed.
I wrote;

Through the mistakes he made and the manner in which he resolved them, Supt. Valentino has demonstrated his inability to be an inspiration in this district ever.
Of what use is a superintendent who can no longer inspire his subordinates, including students, to greatness, especially in their good character?
The petition, regardless of the number of signatures, can and likely will be utterly ignored by the board.  They will avoid situations where questions about their individual or collective reactions to the petition, can be asked.

I'm not real thrilled that the outfit that provides the platform for petitions will not accept a signature without an agreement to give them your email address and agree to;
accept’s terms of service and privacy policy, and agree to receive occasional emails about campaigns on You can unsubscribe at any time.
To their credit, the return email from did include an opportunity unsubscribe immediately.  I think I'll hang around awhile to see what other people are trying to get done.
