Not just move, but move MORE and eat LESS.

Re: “Running on Empty

Lea is not the Chairperson of the Small, Minority, and Women owned Business Commission. Marion Hook is the Chair. I think Lea was Chair in the past. As a current Commissioner, I can tell you she has not been involved in years.

Re: “There's A Whole Lot Of "I Am The Man" In Stegeman

The Tucson Weekly and its' reporters must look critically and objectively at Grijalva's tenure as a Member of the TUSD Board. It has been an unmitigated disaster in my opinion: Again Check the Enrollment Statistics, Central Administration Expansion, Budget Allocations, and AIM Scores. The support of a Candidate by the Tucson Weekly should NOT be a "knee jerk" reaction to her incumbency and her families affiliation with the Democratic Party. If so, the Tucson Weekly will loose readership ..and...more importantly...Credibility.

Re: “There's A Whole Lot Of "I Am The Man" In Stegeman

Can't speak for Safier of course but then asking him to comment on the positions of Grijalva is an exercise in futility. Adelita is of course a royal member of the Democratic tribe and despite the continuing collapse of TUSD, she is untouchable by Safier who is apparently more interested in party purity than revamping the failing district. Dr. Stegeman committed the ultimate sin, supported Republican candidates and switched party affiliation. That explains Safier's continuing campaign against a board member who is not even running for election.

Re: “TUSD Board Member Mark Stegeman Changes His Registration To Independent

Mr. Safier: Your assessment of Dr. Mark Stegeman is , generally, correct in my opinion. However, Dr. Stegeman is not up for re-election to the TUSD Board; Adelita Grijalva and Michael Hicks are up for re-election. You do not support the election of the Candidates supported by Dr. Stegeman, including Michael Hick and Debe Campos-Fleenor....I agree as well.

However, your silence on the re-election of Adelita Grijalva is deafening!! Do you support her re-election and her endorsed candidate, Jenifer Darland?

Grijalvas' and Hicks' tenure on the Board has been an unmitigated disaster in developing a positive/successful Academic program for TUSD.

Check the Statistics during their tenure in Office: AIMS Assessment Scores, Decline in Enrollment; and, with that, astoundingly, an over 100% increase in Central Administration Staff diverting monies to support a BLOATED Administration and away from the Classroom/Laboratory Infrastructure.

Grijalva and Hicks, BOTH, need to be voted off the TUSD Board! Do you agree???.

Re: “There's A Whole Lot Of "I Am The Man" In Stegeman

Marty, Rat T and Safier are all on the wrong track. The first two focus entirely on their animus towards Grijalva, whereas Safier seems to suffer from a Stegeman-obsession. Anyone who has been following the TUSD Board since both of them came on the Board can see that BOTH of them are examples of the SAME problem, which is agenda-driven, selfish politics that won't allow for the possibility of dialogue or compromise. They BOTH remind me of Rosalie Lopez, another vain, stubborn and vengeful Board member who the electorate wisely dumped after growing weary of her excesses.

Take a good look at every other governing board in our county and you will not find anyone who performs their duties in the way that BOTH Grijalva and Stegeman have approached theirs. If Safier (or Steller) believe that Stegeman and Horne are the main reasons for the dysfunctions and divisions on the TUSD Board, they need to take a broader view and perhaps remove their partisan filters. Marty and Rat T would be wise to do the same. The historical record proves that Grijalva is just as guilty as Stegeman for the problems in TUSD during her watch, perhaps more so since she has been on the Board longer.

Voters should carefully scrutinize all the candidates and ask themselves which ones will fulfill the main task of any governing board member in any district, which is to stay focused on policy and to learn the operations of the district they serve so that they can hold the superintendent and their team accountable for day to day operations. Grijalva has utterly failed in that mission, as has Stegeman's lackey, Hicks. There will be no sustainable change in TUSD until the Board is composed of people who understand and perform their roles with consistency and integrity.

Re: “US Fries Poutine Restaurant Opens Saturday, Offers Free Food

that is so true.... almost 30 different wings and things places open up, this guy has a spin or a new idea, on the fast food industry. When done right Poutine is delicious. Also, lets not worry about the college kids eating properly, they are going to eat pizza and ramen and their high metabolism will burn through anything. If you can give them something new and throw some brisket or other protein in with it, the Poutine becomes a meal.... especially at 2am after a few cold ones! When are you opening one in Houston!

Re: “US Fries Poutine Restaurant Opens Saturday, Offers Free Food

This is a great idea and I think it will catch on. He is going after the right crowd, the starving student! I think the average student, tired of eating cardboard pizza, will like the gooey cheesy, crispy hot french fry combo covered in piping hot gravy. I had Poutine while in Canada and the specialty shops that focus on it make fresh fries and gravy and use real cheese curds, not like the fast food restaurants, so it is a very different dish. If 20 different "Hot Wing" chains can pop up all over the country one designer french fries shop should catch on. Bring on the Nay Sayers... makes the Poutine taste that much better!

We deserved better than that.

YOU have made it personal. In the very quote you cited, Mr Stegeman used he, him and Hicks four times.

What is you real goal here? I think we know.

Than you Brian and Marty. You sure got that right.
