To: The Tucson Community- 33rd Open Letter
From: Whistleblowers– Comprised of a Large Group of Extremely Concerned TUSD Administrators, Teachers (welcoming new teachers!), Retired Administrators and Teachers, Parents, Grandparents- Growing with Each and Every Letter
Subject: TUCSON EDUCATION ASSOCIATION (TEA) IS RIPPING OFF THEIR MEMBERS BIG TIME!
TEA Membership is a Scam!
Each and every TEA member should immediately withdraw their membership based on poor representation and the fact that membership dues are being used to pay for property taxes of a VACANT BUILDING located at 4625 East 2nd Street.
When TEA membership actually represented TUSD teachers the building was fully utilized and staffed. This was many, many years ago. TEA leaders now sit subserviently in HT Sanchez pocket.
With membership at an all time low, Jason –racist DNA– Freed has found it difficult to even come up with the cash to make the payments on property taxes for the vacant building. But he has- out of membership fees! The building has been vacant for many years, basically boarded up. If you are a TEA members here is where a big chunk of membership dues are going:
The 2015 taxes for the property were $ 7,929.35. The property description shows it as being “vacant.” The tax history shown on the current record shows the following.
(Article continued below)
A total of nearly $30,000 has been spent within the last 5 years for a building which has been VACATED! Does this represent the contract rights of teachers and white collar employees? NO!
The incompetence of TEA leadership becomes clearer and clearer.
Jason –racist DNA– Freed and his cronies are not about representing teachers (or white collar employees). He and his crew have let teachers down by allowing HT Sanchez, Kristal Foster, Cam Juarez and Adelita Grijalva to hoard the 301 funding away instead of putting it in the pockets of those nearest to our students- TEACHERS! This is bad enough but each of them has also broken their promise in how 1 2 3 funding would be used.
Drop TEA and vote in anyone BUT Juarez and Foster.
