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. Then began the controversies of allowing business-owners who do not live in Barrio Hollywood a vote which would be like allowing someone in Oro Valley to vote in Tucson elections simply because they work here. This was combined with an attempt to limit the votes of life-long residents to one vote per household which would easily cut the voting power of citizens by more than one-half.
For months I have been posting on my Facebook wall about the, injustice taking place in Brazil regarding the World Cup. I was tuned into this before the armchair activists recently learned about this latest thing to keep sharing memes about.
John Oliver nailed exactly how I feel on his new show (video above). FIFA is the 1% of the 1%, but I don’t ever think about FIFA during the World Cup, I think about the soccer! Still that is no excuse…
This is a time for unity when billions of people from around the world watch the beautiful game. Unfortunately FIFA has corrupting the business-side of the sport and thus we have a dilemma.
Then I thought about Sunnyside (school district in Tucson’s southside, mostly Latino). Read more on Conflicted about the World Cup: Is Soccer like Sunnyside?…
A new year is upon us and 2014 will be the third year with the MAS-TUSD program after it was banned two years ago January 2012.
Half of those two years was with the old “anti-MAS” majority on the school board which was 4-1.
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.
