This is one of my favorites videos from the Queen of Soul playing at the Kennedy Center, bringing tears to President Obama. RIP.
While Three Sonorans has endorsed David Garcia for Arizona Governor, his latest email asking for money was shocking and has a scolding tone to it.
What do you think?
Subject: EMBARRASSING defeat – from David Garcia
We’re at a loss for words…
Its election time again. I am sick and tired of irresponsible, corrupt politicians and I am doing something about it! The following message took a lot of thinking and soul searching for me, but there comes a time when we need to stand up and tell it like it is no matter who it is! If you agree, vote for my choice if you don’t, we all have choices. If you like, please share.
State Representative Sally Ann Gonzales is running for the vacant State Senate seat in Legislative District 3. Sally Ann has a proud history of standing up for women’s rights and the disadvantaged. An independent thinker, Sally Ann has stood up to the establishment.
The following open letter to TUSD was posted on this recently posted article’s comment section.
TS and Readers: The following was sent to Board and Supt. today.
August 6, 2018
Dear TUSD Governing Board and Dr. Gabriel Trujillo:
I was very glad to see what the Whistleblowers reported about Gloria Copeland in Three Sonorans. Good and brave of the Whistleblowers! In reaction to the Whistleblowers’ 72nd letter, Dr. Gabriel Trujillo is saying that Gloria Copeland, Fisher plaintiffs’ representative (or whatever her role is) has the same rights to visit schools as any other “citizen.” This immediately shows how oblivious he is about Gloria Copeland’s behavior throughout the District and his lack of power or willingness to protect TUSD employees from Gloria’s out-of-bounds behavior at the schools. Maybe he believes Gloria’s bluff that she has two or three Board members “in-pocket.” (She throws Michael Hick’s name around all of the time and suggests that she speaks to Mark Stegeman regularly and she throws in that when she spoke with Rachael Sedgewick she said this and she said that so that people will know that she is also in contact with her.) It is one of her intimidation tricks. Basically, she is constantly dropping their names. I refuse to believe that any of these three Board members condone what Gloria is doing in the schools or other TUSD offices and I challenge each board member and Dr. Trujillo to condone her conduct or to denounce it. Remaining silent actually condones Gloria’s behavior and it allows her to continue with her awful disrespectful and disruptive behavior.
We grant our permission to publish this letter and to distribute it widely. The Whistleblowers are the sole authors of all of our letters. Those who publish or reference our letters are not involved in writing or influencing our letters.
72nd Open Letter to TUSD Governing Board and Superintendent Gabriel Trujillo- Request to Stop Intimidation, Harassment, Insults, Bullying, Threats, and Coercion by Gloria Copeland- STOP HER Meeting at Sahuaro HS on Friday, August 3, 2018
From: TUSD Whistleblowers– Comprised of a Large Group of Extremely Concerned TUSD Administrators, Teachers, Retired Administrators, Parents, & Grandparents
For many years in Tucson, you could tune in to hear your daily hate on “Good News Communication,” 1030AM-KVOI. If you wanted to hear multiple shows in the morning or afternoon that supported this last decade of hate in Arizona, from SB1070 to HB2281, which banned Mexican American Studies (MAS) in TUSD, to Trump’s support of America’s most hateful Sheriff Arpaio, you knew where to turn on the radio dial.
Now the morning show named WakeUp Tucson! may become ¡Despierta Tucson! as Bustos “La MAS Mexicana” Media buys out the Trump-supporting Christian Conservative radio station that was part of the racist and unconstitutional assault on MAS and Latino students in Tucson Unified.
June 27th Board Meeting: Is this a Joke?
The June 27th Board meeting was filled with dysfunction. It was almost like a slap-stick comedy routine. What type of leadership loads a Board agenda up with 56 items? It shows unadulterated stupidity.
Mark Stegeman sort-of attended the meeting- on and off -as he connected and then disconnected on the telephone. He was at a hospital in Denver probably having to do with a family member’s medical needs but no explanation was ever provided. He had no agenda or any notes and had to keep asking questions over issues which had already been covered. It took a few tries to even get him on the phone. It was disruptive. At one point his child grabbed the phone out of his hand and decided to talk. It just added chaos. Because Mark was not physically present, Kristel-salivating-at-the-mouth-to-be-Board-President took over the President’s role. It was outrageous.
AN OPEN LETTER TO THE PIMA COUNTY BOARD OF SUPERVISORS:
IS THERE A COVER-UP OF THE WORLD VIEW EXPLOSION REPORT??
On December 19, 2017, a hydrogen balloon exploded at the World View Spaceport built by Pima County taxpayers at a cost of $20 million. The explosion was made public by the Arizona Daily Independent on December 20 with an online video.
On December 22 Star columnist Tim Steller reported that World View officials told him that “final results, recommendations and corrective actions, if necessary”would be available “in about 45 days.” That would have been mid-February.
Grand Wizard of the KKK, David Duke, just about lost his mind after meeting the embodiment of his worst nightmare: a young Master's Degree-Educated Mexican-American Jewish woman!
Sylvia Campoy will be a guest on Wake Up Tucson, 1030-KVOI, this Wednesday, June 20th, at 8am to discuss the issues she addresses and the speak-out event on Thursday mentioned in this article.
