New temporary school board seated Robert Moreno | Sat, May 31 2014 12:00 PM

The Sweetwater Union High School’s May 28 school board meeting featured four new faces and one old one.

Four new trustees from the San Diego County Office of Education who were temporarily appointed to the Sweetwater school board on May 19 were sworn in as board members, marking their commitment to serve the district.

With two of the five original trustees suspended from the board — Jim Cartmill and Bertha Lopez for pleading guilty to receiving gifts above state limits and two other elected trustees, Pearl Quiñones and Arlie Ricasa, no longer serving the district after pleading guilty to corruption charges — the dais had a new look.

Trustees Sharon C. Jones, Mark C. Anderson and Sue Hartley participated in their first meeting as Sweetwater overseers Wednesday night. Trustee Lyn Neylon did not attend because of a previous engagement.

Among the board’s firsts tasks was appointing a new board president. Their choice: board member John McCann, who is running for Chula Vista City Council.

Anderson said his first day on the job showed him what the South Bay community wants.

“I think the people are ready for a change,” Anderson said.

anniej, what you report should be a headline article, because it shows to what extent McCann and Brand are willing to use deceit.

Appalling, of course--but we are unfortunately very used to that. The public insult to the mayor is a new low. McCann and Brand should be called out on this one--this school district is a total public disgrace.

Allegedly, the duly elected Mayor of Chula Vista Ms. Cheryl Cox was scheduled to speak at the Montgomery Adult Ed graduation on Friday. She arrived, with a speech prepared - only to find she had been deleted from the Program and replaced by John McCann - NO NOTICE GIVEN!!!!!

If this is how Ed Brand and John McCann are prepared to carry themselves, and this is the lack of professionalism we can expect - THEY BOTH NEED TO GO AND GO NOW!!!!!

MAYOR COX, AS A TAXPAYER, ALUMNI OF HILLTOP HIGH AND VOTER I SINCERELY APOLOGIZE THAT WERE SHOWN SUCH DISRESPECT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
