PICTURES SPEAK THE TRUTH

When I left reporters were still showing up - channel 5 got there after I left. When I left the room was nearly full, as teachers, parents and administrators started to show up during their lunch period.

On the issue of Brett illegally hiring people - this is what came out. Dawn Hall of Lopez was upset the person she wanted to hire did not get the job - she complained to Saavedra who use to work with her in Los Fresnos - Atkinson's old stomping grounds.

Brett has froze hiring in a lot of positions because of the budget crisis and simply moved another BISD employee into the position. This is allowed under the rules. Presas-Garcia, Longoria and Saavedra are demanding Brett lift the hiring freeze so that their people can get hired. This is not going to happen - Presas-Garcia, Longoria, and Saavedra seem to not understand what it means to be in a budget crisis.

The assumption is Dawn Hall was played by these idiots.  Hopefully she and all of the other principals have learned a hard lesson of what happens when you try to play  dirty with Presas-Garcia.

I count eleven people hell that not even enough people to fill a classsroom. It also includes Pat AFLAC Hammes. You forgot to show the picture of Zayas, Cortez and Powers are they trying to hide somethin?

You keep the lies going - channel 4 news will have the coverage - I took the picture at about 12:30 of the protesters - the room was nearly full by 1:15 - 4 should have the pictures of people cheering on Brett when he walked into teh room - it was nearly full and they were still coming after I left

And word was out the meeting was cancelled.

yes, there were people from all over the community there - if I get your argument like a soviet spy I was to take pictures of everyone - no - I had no duty to take pictures of everyone - and yes former board members were there along with former teachers and administrators

the story was Brett - teacher support hence the picture with patrck - the board members who did show, and a group picture of some of the protesters - that is the story


But keep on pushing the spin - the story is not how many showed in support of Brett - the real story is teh fact no one showed in support of Cata including Cata herself

So spin away

i am off to bed, but I am being told there has been an assault on a student at Lopez - more on that later

Maybe the assault was on hall not in the hall! Oh, but hall never goes out in the halls. She is always locked behind closed doors. No wonder Saavedra was principal for the day over there! All the Los Fresnos clan, including Susan Fox are in this together. Don't be surprised if SF is the one wanting the interim. What a mess! Todas/todos se tapan con la misma colcha. We should have all walked over to OPI and shown up in front of someone's house! Colunga, Aguilar and Pena did something for the children of Brownsville by showing up. It would have been a 3-1 vote for Mr. Springston if Cata had not chickened out!

Guys, I am real tired the school is PACE - i am on the phone with the father night. A coach grabbed the chld and left her arm swollen.

Tell us post 1 what makes you so proud of this fiasco? You ought to be ashamed of yourself. Folks such as you, you do not know shame. This bitterness you have against Zayas, why? Is it due to the fact that he has a positive IQ, a successful law practice and does not need losers like you? He's quite happy not being on the board and if attends meetings, he has every right to do so. His son attends BISD. He's a taxpayer and pays plenty. What about you? Rather than focusing on the very important issue ready to hit you on the face, the budget deficit, you continue to play petty poltitics. None of your cronies are statesmen, son puro ratones.

Anon, I appreciate your comment, but if I use the word bully it is because I have seen teh facts to support my statement - I believe you they are bullies - and I wish I could post the commment but I cannot -

Great coverage! You now have a couple of new readers that I sent to BV. More people are realizing that the other blogs are misleading like the conBrownsville blog. The results of todays agenda speaks for itself. BISD still needs TEA to appoint a master!

BobbyWC said...

I am told a lawsuit was prepared today - but they need a community leader to be the plaintiff - someone who will not be subject to attack.

Presas-garcia would have to pay for her won defense

Thank you for all your hardwork in cleaning up BISD. Your credibility is a major cornerstone that few have.

"Presas-Garcia, Longoria, and Saavedra seem to not understand what it means to be in a budget crisis".......not much, if any financial understanding among the three. I challenge any one to point to a single arena, public or private, where any of the three have had to make financial decisions on a scale the size of BISD's impending budget reductions.

"but they need a community leader to be the plaintiff - someone who will not be subject to attack.".....We already had the discussion about the absence of leadership in this community. And besides, the Pope, the President, and the surviving members of the Beatles could all sign off as plaintiffs and they would still be attacked. It's the only methodology of the small minded Presas-Garcia and her ilk.

We need Dag Barrera to get in there and put his actions where his loud mouth is in. He always complains about what is not being done, so obviously, he knows what should be done. What do you say? Should we have him as a write in candidate for mayor or in case Cata gets kicked out? Que dice la raza? Can you think of another community leader that would really live up to his campaign compromises?

Check your facts again. Dr. Saavedra never worked in Los Fresnos. Also, Personnel made a mistake filling a slot that actually already had a person in it. Two persons on contract but only one position. This isn't the biggest mistake, only the most recent in a long list of Personnel mistakes that end up costing the district more money to clean up.

BobbyWC said...

Let's assume you are correct and district money was wasted - this is why you have no credibility

How about the money wasted today on the attorney and staff for a meeting Presas-garcia cancelled Does this concern you? Is it a bssis to remove Presas-Garcia?

How about the money it will cost the district to hire an insurance consultant for a period BISD already paid for

How about how much it is costing BISD to bring Thompson and Horton up to speed on all the current litigation

there should be no waste of money

so when you are willing to be honest and speak about how the corrupt 4 are wasting money then maybe you may have something to say.

I will always denounce the waste - bring me real facts and I do not care who is guilty I will nail them.

If the evidence ever shows Springston made costly mistakes in personnel I will denounce it - but to date all we have are accusations by people who never prove their claims

That is what happens when you hire a Springston/Fox crony without experience as the administrator for personnel.

Anonymous said...

You say to bring you facts but how can anyone do so when you continue to post Dr. Saavedra worked in Los Fresnos with Ms. Hall as if it was fact when it is an out right lie.

BobbyWC said...

I will check with my source and make a correction - but I did post your comment so people can see my source may have been wrong

But the fact remains she did work under Atkinson - if my source is wrong about the other part so be it

so maybe one factual mistake

this means everything else is wrong

you are desperate and stretch reality

But what I have done is promote the comments so people can make inquiriers and get to the truth

What rock has this 9:33 poster been living under? Since when does a dept. administrator role up their sleeves and get their hands dirty? It is the same people that do the day to day that screwed up. Like the maintenance dept., personnel is the second best joke at BISD, but they're consistent. Not until they get people in there with business experience in the field will things get better in both these departments. Maybe now with the budget crunch they'll start firing screw-ups instead of promoting them to run departments. That's what BISD needs, second to a new board president.

BobbyWC said...

you will never hear me defend personnel - it is a political time bomb

but maintenance comes in under budget and does work for other departments - I think they are the example we all want to meet

If you have been at the budget meeting recently, you would have heard that there is no hiring freeze for teachers, but for everyone else there is. Maybe this is what is confusing people as well myself.

WOW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! What else can I say that has not been already said!

BobbyWC said...

Today Presas-garcia had a chance to bring forward her evidence - she would have been declared the hero of all humanity

Imagine the uproar by the people as she presented all of her solid evidence to only have Aguilar, Pena, and Colunga ignore it.

The people would have rushed to her side and yell "justice we will get justice for Cata."

Not she cannot with this with a packed jury and the packed jury cut and ran on her

Dr. Saavedra was with BISD then was the principal at St Lukes for 9 years. After that she went to Santa Rosa (where Dr. Atkinson was Supt). She left there and went to progresso for less than a year. She now is a classroom teacher at Incarnate Word Academy. This can be verified by googling her name.
