DEC. 4, 2007 UPDATE: MY STATEMENT (SEE BELOW) THAT PAMELA SMITH, CHERYL COX AND BERTHA LOPEZ ALL VOTED TO FIRE AN EXCELLENT TEACHER (WHO OFFENDED HER PRINCIPAL BY GETTING PREGNANT) WAS CONFIRMED IN COURT TODAY.
THE SCHOOL BOARD VOTE WAS UNANIMOUS, AS I HAD SURMISED.
MORE SHAMEFULLY, CVESD BOARD MEMBERS MORE RECENTLY VOTED TO CONTINUE THEIR ILLEGAL ACTIONS, AND TO SPEND TAXPAYER MONEY ON INDEFENSIBLE LITIGATION, RATHER THAN SETTLE.
WHAT'S WRONG WITH YOU, PAMELA, CHERYL/DAVID AND BERTHA?
HOW COULD YOU TREAT ANOTHER WOMAN THIS WAY?
(I ALREADY KNOW WHAT'S WRONG WITH PATRICK JUDD AND LARRY CUNNINGHAM, SO I WON'T ASK.)
Pamela Smith, Cheryl Cox, and Bertha Lopez all voted to fire Danielle Coziahr from Chula Vista Elementary School District. How do I know? Actually, I don't know anything except this: these three CVESD board members always vote exactly as Patrick Judd and Larry Cunningham vote. Decisions of the CVESD board have been consistently unanimous for many years.
Cheryl Cox later became mayor of Chula Vista. She was clearly misrepresenting the facts when she claimed to believe that the City of Chula Vista should settle with Laurie Madigan, the wife of a developer, who was being investigated for a conflict of interest, in order to save the cost of litigation. Cheryl Cox is perfectly happy to reach into the taxpayers' pockets to pay for litigation, and to keep doing it until the cows come home. But she likes to keep taxpayer money moving toward the hands of developers and their ilk. She just doesn't like to settle with ordinary people, like teachers.
Shame on Pamela Smith, who runs the San Diego County Department of Aging. Smith has proven over the years that she doesn't have any sincere concern for civil rights and other laws.
Like Cox, she is not an appropriate person to be working for government. People in government need to have respect for the law. The same can be said of Bertha Lopez, a teacher. With people like these in charge, it's no wonder our public entities seem to be doing less and less for the public as time goes by.
David Bejarano is new to the board, but I am confident that he rubber-stamped the Coziahr decision every time it came up in a closed board meeting. If I'm wrong about any of this, I'll wear sackcloth and ashes to a board meeting.
