Re: “The Skinny

At the school board meeting just after her election was won, she spent her call to the audience time getting on already seated school board members for not accepting her friend request. She was concerned she had been blocked and didn't appreciate that. Now this? Honey, your facebook friends list shouldn't be how you measure your worth.

Re: “The Skinny

The dispute doesn't tell you much. But her subsequent misbehavior tells you everything you need to know.

Re: “The Skinny

Is this true Mr Nintzel? Is this a fake news story that Hillary warned us about?

Re: “The Skinny

I've met Ms. Sedgwick on many occasions, this story doesn't match her personality at all. Even if she did protest in this manner it would not change my opinion that Ms. Sedgwick will do well for TUSD. I also know the Tucson Weekly well, they are nothing but a dirty rag, a very pore excuses for journalism.
TW is owned by the Grijalvas, they control it, so it is of no surprise that they would try to smear Ms. Sedgwick in this manner. I too was a victim of the Weekly, they wrote a nasty story about me and released personal information retrieved from TUSD without investigating. Well Tucson Weekly I now have the evidence that what you retrieved from TUSD was completely false, written by a man that committed criminal fraud , of which TUSD covered up. Want to do a real story , do that one and leave Ms. Sedgwick alone, or maybe we should both sue you slander.

Re: “The Skinny

Amazing that not a single commenter questions whether this story about Sedgwick should have been reported at all by Nintzel, or whether one source who states, "She got very irate and started screaming, 'I just got elected to the school board. Do you know who I am?'" was in fact accurately reporting the incident. Were there other people in the bar? Were any of them consulted by Nintzel?

Ever hear anything in journalism school, Nintzel (if you ever attended) about the inadvisability of consulting only one source or constructing stories based on templates like "He (bartender) said" / "She (elected official) said"?

The PCDP's affiliates attempts to discredit and undermine Sedgwick begin. What a great town Tucson is. There will be more good times in store for kids in TUSD schools, no doubt, with Foster and Grijalva's mean girl network already hard at work doing their nasty business.

TW: Nintzel on local politics, Safier on education. What a crock of crap.

Re: “The Skinny

Kenneth Groves - why in the world would they be paying retail for what you assert is a quarter keg, not a half barrel?

15cents a glass. And if they are pouring everything else at 12oz it should be clearly denoted that it was a puny 6oz for this ripoff.

Re: “The Skinny

This entire matter speaks more about her privileged attitude than that of the bar, it's staff, or the price of anything.
How is she going to view parents at a Board meeting? Instead of seeing them as her employers, I have no doubt she will look upon them as unelected problems she will need to deal with.
Leadership in action?

Re: “The Skinny

Just what TUSD needs...another egomaniac, imbecile board member.

It can only get worse from here on out....

Re: “The Skinny

Looking up the price of the beer in question I found that it sells for $308.85 to the public for a quarter keg, not a half keg. Makes the $12 pour worth $1900 minus any spillage as you never get the whole number of pours. Not too far from normal markup on a keg.

This woman has the IQ of a carrot. Give her a Bud Light, which sounds like it's more up her ally.

Re: “The Skinny

$4000 in pours for a $265 keg.

$12 for a 6 oz beer is robbery and if not plainly disclosed would and should draw ire.

Re: “The Skinny

Wow. All that over $12?

Admittedly, I probably wouldn't have been all too pleased if I had received a 6 oz beer for $12 either; but the difference between her and I is that I would've chalked it up as an inexpensive lesson well learned. I also wouldn't have used the tired "Do you know who I am?" line (although since I'm not an elected "official" that probably makes me a nobody, especially in a snobby woman such as herself's mind) and I would have either left the establishment after cherishing that beer for what it was worth or I would have stayed and ordered another beverage where I received a better bang for my buck.

Different strokes for different folks, eh?

Re: “The Skinny

I know who you are. You were the snob that was elected in error. TUSD sinks further into oblivion as none of them are there for the children. Followers stop following her.

Re: “The Skinny

The words "Do you know who I am?" Should be totally stricken from any elected officials vocabulary.

Support public education instead. High quality public education is the backbone of democracy.

Re: “The Skinny

Don't forget tax credits for private education. You can give $1,000 to a student of your choice and $2,000 if they are leaving an AZ public school. If your church or service group can select a child in need they could fully fund a child's tuition for the year. Open your heart this Christmas and make a difference for a local student.

Re: “The Skinny

Way to waste my tax dollars City idiots. You can't fight the state and if you want to tilt at windmills why not pick one that's actually worth tilting at. Regardless of how this turns out, Tucson's gun violence rates won't move any detectable amount.

Re: “The Skinny

That's exactly how they roll n7. Let the taxpayers be damned. They try to balance their agendas against the reductions in white privilege.
