The Barrio Hollywood Neighborhood Association met Thursday, January 7th, 2016 to elect their new leadership team. Thus ends the era of the previous administration that was mired in controversy, which began with allegations of people from outside Barrio Hollywood coming to stack the vote during the date of the last election to oust the long-serving president.

How bad is the lack of leadership on the TUSD school board, and how much is it costing taxpayers?

TUSD deputy superintendent Adrian Vega.

We explored the lack of leadership on the school board earlier this week, and how it may just be up to the new superintendent HT Sanchez to save TUSD, since the current board lacks the courage to do anything brave on their own, such as stand up for justice and bring back Mexican American Studies or unban books. Our theory was that the current board is not a bad board, but they are just weak and need someone to follow. For example, they can be the strongest supporters of leaders such as Raul Grijalva or Randy Parraz, and as backup […]
