Reedy habilitation continues; bond issue promoted

Interim APS Supt. Raquel Reedy has posted on APS' award winning website, link, her reaction to the habilitation piece recently provided for her in the Journal, link.

Her reaction included a self assessment;
"I’ve always been a behind-the-scenes kind of person ..."
In previous Journal coverage, link, Reedy admitted;
"I don't have the whole picture, nobody does."
Logically, one can't see "the whole picture" from "behind the scenes".

In that article, Reedy revealed that, in order to mitigate her ignorance of relevant data, she was going to instigate "reviews" of a handful of APS departments.  The issues that the reviews will address remain secret, as do the findings of at least one of the reviews.

The review of APS HR is done.  The findings are not posted on APS' award winning website.  Nor will they be, ever.  They will be made as hard to see, as is "legal".

They are "available for inspection" in APS Custodian of Public Records Rigo Chavez' office.

You will have to make an appointment.

He will not scan and email them to you.  He claims to not have electronic versions of the records and cannot be compelled under the law (short of litigation) to "create a record".*

*Update; I am now informed that some of the records are available electronically - meaning he will cause them to be written to a CD he is willing to sell me.

Chavez answers to APS Executive Director of Communications Monica Armenta.  Armenta answers (ultimately) to Reedy.  Some one of them decided to make the truth harder to find.

The buck stops on Reedy's desk.

She is knowingly permitting Rigo Chavez to obstruct the production of public records, or is negligently allowing him.

However well Reedy performs behind the scenes, there is no such thing as behind the scenes leadership.

Behind the scenes, behind closed doors leadership is why the leadership of the APS is in the  mess it is.

Right now, Reedy's record is of commissioning a "review" of the spending of public power and resources and then hiding the findings.

She is doing what the leadership of the APS has always done; gather what data you must and the hide it.

Nothing has changed.  Nothing, likely, will.
