Re: “The Skinny

AVL, the simple explanation is this. The County Administrator is the employee of the Board of Supervisors as an entity, not the employee of a single supervisor. The Board of Supervisors as an entity is a body comprised of at least 3 affirmative votes. When any Supervisor is a lone vote, whether for good or ill, they are NOT the employer, just a member of the Board. Which is why to accomplish business of any type, learning to work with your peers is essential.

Re: “The Skinny

I was struck by the comment that she performed better than expected during her first term. Were their expectations low because she was a woman? But better than whomever? Not currently impressed by her general performance over all in the interests of the non-military middle class community in her district. What exactly has she done to make our lives better?

Re: “TUSD Enrollment, 2000 to 2017

I find Huppenthal's comments and statistics suspicious at best, and often knowingly either hyper overstated or hyper-understated to suit his purposes. Having listened to him at length in sworn testimony, I know he cannot be relied upon to tell the truth or to answer questions directly. He always has an axe to grind. During his lamentable term in office, he deliberately ignored specific evidence concerning statists on test scores, etc. presented to his office. Therefore, I await with interest responses from a competent observer on the interesting data Safier presents.

Re: “Arizona's Un-Credential. Is It the Beginning Of the End Of Teaching As a Profession?

Where are there schools with uncertified teachers that are comparable to schools with certified teachers in sufficient quantities and of significant length to provide long-term results? And what does "long-term" imply? How many years, judged by what? As usual with Huppenthal, his statements are questionable at best, and probably false at worst.
