SAUSD school board update

I am hearing that failed Pulido puppet Tino Rivera is in line to be appointed to outgoing SAUSD school board member Sal Tinajero’s seat, as board member Rob Richardson is apparently promoting him to the rest of the board. Rosie Avila figures to go along – as she backed Rivera for Ward 2, and I think that Dr. Audrey Noji will also back him, given her own alliance with Pulido. That is not good news for the rest of us.

Rivera is an empty suit – surely we can do better? I am also hearing that Armando de la Libertad is throwing a fundraiser tomorrow night for the victorious Santa Ana City Council candidates in order to build support for his own attempt at Tinajero’s seat. However, it sure looks like Rivera has the votes to get his way. You have to believe that Rivera is being advanced so that he can move up politically in a city that brutally rejected him last week.

It also looks like a recall of board member Rosie Avila is brewing. That could get interesting…
