Money for Sweetwater Union HS District Board Members Under Microscope

22.I write as a lawyer that actually litigates cases vritually everyday. The Lawyer that Sweetwater hired to advise them (and Berta Lopez's husband at Otay Water District) not only has a conflict of interest but in my opinion, does not appear to be competent. Why is a second opinion needed and why would anyone be reluctanct to share that opinion? Because it was crappy advice in first place and it is damaging to reveal that you followed the crappy advice of the lawyer who may or may not be involved with a Sweetwater Board member. That same lawyer is offering advice on the legality of providing lifetime health insurance for otay water district employees AND their dependents. Then there are all the contracts for millions of dollars that Sweetwater School District is spending and the allegations of pay for play. The lawyer giving advice is obviously giving advice according to how the Unions dictate. It is time to clean house and provide true transparency to the parents, students, taxpayers, and the teachers that keep on getting bamboozled by the "admisinstrators" and the union heads. The Sweetwater District needs to get back to the basics and call a spade a spade. Pink slips for teachers while they pay for supplies the disctrict will not pay for while the "administrators" go on "training trips" to San Francisco and Monterery? When is the last time you heard of an actual count of the number of administrators (read union chronies) verses teachers. And what do "administrators actually do? Can they tell you? No. Their job seems to be to meet with the lawyer to tell him or her how the legal opinion will read, tell the teachers how to vote and how angry they should be at ... who again? I was at an explusion hearing the other day in which the most vile "retired administrator" was call the shots. There were no less than seven paid "administrators" and legal counsel there collecting our taxd dollars. Really? Whey do we need a retired administrator there in the first place - double dipping? Don't we have enough administrators? And what happened to the days when the principal and vice principal made the recommendation and the Board voted. Was that too cost effective for the Unions? Give me a break. I am a taxpayer and I look at all the waste and I am sick to my stomach. Let's get lean and mean and back to the basics. You want to litigate? I'm your man....if you really think there is something to litigate. It is time to hire people of principal that want to work and want to simplify. Otherwise, get out of our way because we are going broke both morally and fiscally with your hogwash. By bikecabber 5:36 p.m., Feb 6, 2012 > Edit > Reply > Report it
