Sweetwater School District Names Interim Superintendent

Let's hope Brand doesn't do any "consulting" for the district. He has done enough damage.

McCann is still playing the loyal henchman. For what purpose?

Sweetwater Union Teachers On Standby To Strike

I love it that Ed Brand, of all people, is standing on a platform, stating that he won't tolerate conduct that is illegal and that interferes with the education of the students.

It is simply too rich for words. Why did Ed Brand leave Sweetwater so suddenly the first time? Because a Grand Jury was investigating him, and Fast Eddy couldn't stand the heat.

What has Fast Eddy learned in the intervening years? To ensure others take the fall?

To leave no trail?

To bully, threaten and intimidate in such a way that you leave no marks--just like a pro?

The creeping evil in Sweetwater -- not a bad title, but how would one narrow it down?

Indictments Announced In South Bay School Districts Public Corruption Case

I do hope that being put into the spotlight like this will somehow get through to the Sweetwater trustees that the public has not appreciated the truly horrendous treatment received. Blocking public input, ignoring public opinion, openly sneering at sincere efforts of the public to solve problems and obtain reasonable information...their arrogance has been astounding.

The students in Sweetwater and the other districts involved need to learn what being a good public servant is--thus far they have seen precious little of that by way of example.

And this does not even cover what they have done with public funds...because all that is a big mystery. The County Board of Education does not keep the books for Sweetwater, although they do handle a majority of the county school districts' books. The B of E is nominally in charge, but has not called Sweetwater on any of their bookkeeping irregularities. We would like a forensic accounting report going back many years--as long as Sweetwater has been handling their own accounts.
