Once again, the Tucson Weekly is spreading Grijalvista talking points instead of doing actual journalism. If you actually took the time to look into the facts, instead of believing the lies and excuses of the Grijalva Political Machine; you might actually learn something!
It is a well established fact that Kacey Carleton along with the owners of Pat's Chili Dogs, and the owners of Unique Trends Hair Salon tried for over a year to change the Barrio Hollywood Neighborhood Association bylaws to limit residents to ONE VOTE PER HOUSEHOLD. I personally witnessed these events and for Kacey Carleton to write a guest editorial claiming it never happened is an outrage. Kacey Carleton continues to lie about the good people of Barrio Hollywood and claim we are racist against her because she is white. The reason people in the barrio do not like her, is because of her condescending attitude and disgusting reprehensible
When neighborhood residents organize themselves to take back their neighborhood association from outside agitators, it is not called mob rule, it is democracy in action.
Neighborhood residents having control of their own Neighborhood Association is not a radical or even a new idea. Thank you to the Tucson Weekly for actually sending a reporter to witness the events she was writing about. The Weekly was the only print media to do so.
What actually happened is that you were serving as an apologist for the Grijakva political machine (what's new?) and you were forced to write this piece because the entire community is in revolt over the school board's action.
Adelita Grijalva is one of the most incompetent elected officials in Southern Arizona. She is a complete embarrassment to our community and must not be rewarded with another term in office at the expense of our own children.
Adelita Grijalva has served on the TUSD School Board for the past 10 years yet she takes no responsibility for the many failures and embarrassing incidents during that time. I am one of the people asking: what has Adelita Grijalva accomplished besides being the daughter of a Congressman and the Princess of the Grijalva Political Machine? What new ideas has she contributed to the conversation? What does she have to offer the students, parents and teachers of TUSD besides her political connections?
