SAUSD School Board President fires his aunt, who raised him

SAUSD Trustee Jose Hernandez

The Santa Ana Unified School District (SAUSD) Trustees voted last night to fire almost 400 classified instructional aids.  The President of the School Board, Jose Hernandez, told the huge audience at the School Board meeting that one of the workers being fired was his Aunt, who raised him.  But he turned into Donald Trump and fired her anyway.

School Board Trustee John Palacio told his fellow Trustees that there were $17 million dollars available in various district accounts but the other Trustees, with the exception of Rosie Avila, voted to fire the workers anyway. 

Apparently some of the workers will be offered part-time jobs in lieu of their full-time jobs.

Hernandez and fellow Trustee Rob Richardson are up for re-election in November.  Good luck with that!  From what I heard there were over a hundred people there and it sounds like they will be working hard to defeat Hernandez and Richardson.
