We are long overdue for some honesty on the part of Sweetwater's governing board and Superintendent Ed Brand.

While I am not going to hold my breath waiting - the public needs to be a part of this selection process. Every step of the way.

No more Ed Brand tricks, lies, illegal substitutions, and puppets. We need people who are capable of intelligent thought, who are ready and willing to act with integrity and stand up for what is right. The students and the teachers deserve far better treatment than they have been getting.

We do not want a school district run for the benefit of the superintendent and his pals. They need to go, and if they will not go willingly, they need to be removed.

At a cost of 1.5 million dollars for a tenure of a mere 4 months is not fiduciary responsibility. This District has a deficit of 10 million, so it appears the money for the proposed election would come out of the education column. Can our students afford this? Can we, the taxpayers afford it? IMO - No
