Luis "Mini Monica" Sanchez will not join boss Monica Garcia on the LAUSD's School Board.
First, the final results in the LAUSD District Five Runoff as posted
by the City of Los Angeles City Clerk.
** BENNETT KAYSER 10,741 51.44%
LUIS SANCHEZ 10,139 48.56%
KAYSER WINS!!, KAYSER WINS!!
Yes its true, despite $1,522,138.10 in positive independent expenditures (from the likes of AEG, Eli Broad and others), $266,515.00 in contributions (from construction companies and labor unions), and numerous "press releases" from "LA Antonia Education Times" Scribe Jason Song, Bennett Kayser with UTLA help, has beaten the "Team Villar/Broad/Huizar/Garcia Education Machine".
Activists who banded together to beat back Mayor Villar's unconstitutional AB 1381 only to see the mayor's big money education backers buy thenselves (and enrich themselves one construction contracts ) the majority of seats on the LAUSD School Board, are rejoicing in Kayser's victory.
But lets state clearly that this victory is no mandate for continuing UTLA's policies and efforts to indoctrinate, not educate children within LAUSD. This victory is a slapback at the Villar Machine that has no moral compass. Make no mistake, Team Villar's true motives in joining LAUSD to the City of Los Angeles was controlling the budgets and doling out contracts to the exclusive few. And if Johnny or Juanita better their respective math skills by adding up the contracts, then call a press conference to take credit for rising math scores.
Again, congrats to Kayser for his victory against the machine, but beware of becoming too beholden to a dysfunctional unionize indoctrination machine.
