Thank you for a fine, well written tribute to Susan Watry. Like you, I only had occasional times directly spent with her in a book club from which her health issues eventually caused her to withdraw. But her unfailing cheerfulness and continued dedication to Chula Vista issues always shone brightly. It's a big loss.

NoAccountability - I know nothing about Tarantino's views about interventions and the disadvantaged kids. Why do you see him that way? Any examples.

And you mentioned one school specifically regarding Hall. From what I remember, MVM became Mar Vista Academy before Hall's time on the board. Not sure the connection you are referring to. What are parents of those kids thinking about her?

Agree to disagree. Tarantino doesn't give a damn about interventions and kids that are socio-economically disadvantaged. People know this.

As for Hall, just ask some parents of kids that go to Mar Vista Academy what they think.

NoAccountability -disagree, and find it interesting your comments are aimed at the 2 Board members who demand what your 'name' implies we need - ACCOUNTABILITY!

My comment had a thumbs up at the end of it, NOT the jibberish currently showing.

Too bad Paula Hall and Franks Tarantino's terms aren't up. The Sweetwater District would progress much further if both were replaced. The sooner the better.

What is an EDUCATOR?


a person who provides instruction or education; a teacher.
"the perspective of a professional educator"
synonyms: teacher, tutor, instructor, schoolteacher; educationalist, educationist; lecturer, professor; guide, mentor, guru; formalpedagogue; datedschoolmaster, schoolmistress, schoolmarm; archaicschoolman

Jason Paguio is an Educator.
He doesn't qualify as an EDUCATOR?

He has won numerous awards, Globally?

As a four time World Champion Drum Major and Global Ambassador (first American in over 100 years to win World Championships in Scotland), Jason has represented Chula Vista, performing and teaching in South Africa, Japan, Scotland, Ireland, Canada and throughout the United States.

He did teach Music at Eastlake HighSchool creating talent of who were inspired by him today.

If you are going to really analyze what a teacher is, look for that person's history and figure out why Jason wrote that down.

Once a teacher always a teacher. Just like a Military Veteran.

Just because a person is not teaching at the moment.

That person has taught hundreds of children and they have become the community leaders of today.

I cannot believe this is even an issue.

Looks like it is challenged because they see Jason as a very great candidate for the job and are looking for anything negative.

He is an Educator and vetted as one as far as I'm concerned.

He knows Chula Vista very well.

As the top 8 for appointment considered a good candidate they didn't pick him because he was one of the younger applicants.

We want fresh new members that represent Chula Vista.

Not continually recycling Politics.

Seriously Same Past Mayors and Council members applying year after year.

Seems like they are applying to get certain things done in the city for others to benefit.

Political Gains and Profit to certain groups.

If you truly want to see changes in the future VOTE for a New Generation to come in and make those changes.

Sorry without a doubt WE VOTE

Jerry, the difference between your sister and this Paigow fella is that your sister successfully defended herself and proved she was right. This guy folded up his tent and packed it in. It is not hard to prove you are an educator. It is one of the easier ballot designations to use. He clearly couldn't prove it so he took his ball and went home.

The people need to know about the devious, unethical election political tactics such as blatant absurd insinuations and false accusations Jessica Hayes uses to inflict harm on people with her lies in her current role as vice chair South Area of San Diego County Democratic Party. Everything Jessica Hayes does is done for political calculation, it does not matter how cowardly, corrupt, cruel and hurtful the tactic is she will use it. Truthfulness is a political virtue and it is a perspective totally lacking in Jessica Hayes modus operandi. The ludicrous and hurtful accusation she has brought against Jason Paguio that he is not a music educator is a tactic to gain political advantage. Jason Paguio through his performance, successful assignments and dedicated mentoring roles is an inspirational talented music educator in action and fact. Jessica Hayes did the same cruel, despicable tactic against my sister Southwestern Professor Emeritus Teresa ‘Terry’ Thomas – microbiologist- educator- scientist designation in the 2014 South Bay Irrigation District race. Terry provided the registrar of voters with extensive documentation to uphold her ballot designation qualifications in all three areas. Jessica Hayes needs to stop inflicting harm on people with her lies and nasty political tactics.

You mean with all of those BOND MONIES spent no one in Southwesterns Facilities Dept. or Bond Oversight Committee thought to consider the parking issue? Guess that is on the agenda for the next BOND they are looking to float in November ( one I will NOT be voting for ).

But,,,, just look at all of the NFL players the new VERY EXPENSIVE football field has turned out.

And,,,,, think of all that revenue into City Halls coffers.

Don't it just make you proud of the folks we elected - NOT!!!!

To some it might be perceived as 'no big deal', claiming a field one is really not a part of - but to others it sounds like same old So. Bay politics - bait and switch.

Each of us will have to decide on which side of the fence we sit.

Who are willing to serve and who are in it to simply use?
