…wrote Journal editors. I disagree. Mayor Chavez’s plan is
building an empire that includes control of the public schools; the
lack of accountability in the APS is merely a convenient excuse.
If Chavez had any real concern over the lack of accountability in the

There is an election February 6, 2007. Voters will elect three members
of their board of education. They will also decide whether or not to

There is evidence of a deliberate distortion of the truth in the
broadcast version of ten public forums; the forums during which the
school board members and superintendent each refused to hold themselves

Public servants wield a great deal of power. They yield it legitimately
only in the interest of the people whose power it is. The power is
entrusted to them for no other purpose. Any other use is illegitimate;
it is an abuse of power.
Our power is certainly not entrusted to...
