Bob Vasquez

TPS Board Members lack of public communication

Just got off the phone with TPS board member Bob Vasquez. We (family, friends, block) have been trying to have communication with the TPS board since November 2009 having sent some 153 e-mail messages and well over 30 phone calls. After some 6 months and after the levy failed then they want to finally meet with us. Can you belive that? We begged for communication and a meeting long before the levy vote and they wait until after the levy fails to see that we did have power and now they want to meet with us.

I drove by Scott High School today and it felt like the lights went out.

Two days after the election, I drove by Scott high school, which I do a few times a day, but this time it was different. It felt like the lights had gone out. With the election of Bob Vasquez, Virginia Hill and Larry Sykes, to the school board, who will advocate for the neighborhood's high school, Jack Ford, Lisa Sobecki?

Pride versus Humility

Sometimes pride gets in the way of being able to partake fully in things we as human beings want to do. What my parents told me was, "Don't cut off your nose to spite your face." I am such a holder of grudges that it is difficult for me to forgive and forget, especially if the offender has not apologized or even acknowledged that they were being offensive.

Response requested from Superintendent Foley - second request

Via e-mail from Steven Flagg:

For your information. Responses from John Foley to the original questions regarding the Scott auction are included in the text below. The auctions of TPS property have raised many questions within the Toledo community. Did they follow state law? Did we receive fair value for the property sold at these auctions? Why were property appraisals not completed for Scott and other auctions?

Mr. Foley,

Larry Sykes and minority contracting

Open Letter to the Black Community and anyone else interested in fair play, fair dealing and the truth,

I had the opportunity of attending the Toledo Board of Education's interviews for filling the vacancy left by the abdication of Steve Steel, the inveterate politician.

The interviews were held with Bob Vasquez presiding over the proceedings. Present were Ms. Darlene Fisher, Mr. Bob Vasquez, Ms. Lisa Sobecki and Mr. Jack Ford.

Politics 101: Don't try to rewrite history with someone who made it

There is something wrong with someone who writes to clarify the record, has the record rewritten on behalf of the “President of the Toledo Board of Education”. That sums up what Steven Steel tries to do in a response from a community member trying to clarify some misconceptions.

Troy always gets the news makers first. The Toledo Board of Education selected Bob Vasquez to replace Robert Torres. Listen to Chris Myers, Darlene Fisher and Cheryl Catlin give their opinion on the decision.

Vasquez: New TPS Board Member

So why did the board take time to do interviews ? Its seems they had their person pre-picked , and they sure don't listen to the voters' selection. I emailed all the board members, and didn't get the courtesy of even a reply from any of them.

AND THE BEAT GOES ON - audio included

"It's for the kids" is the battle cry of TPS and today that cry was cemented in the nomination and appointment of Bob Vasquez to the TPS board seat vacated by Robert Torres. The seat was handed over to Mr. Vasquez by a three to one vote at the board meeting this morning. Darlene Fisher being the dissenting vote. With the appointment of Mr. Vasquez, there will no longer be any speculation on any votes coming before the board. Darlene once again is the Lone Ranger.
