The aily Review

ailyDid you notice our sign on Foothill Boulevard? Apparently the D wasn’t looking too secure. A couple of bolts that hold it on were sticking out too far for comfort, so they removed the letter in the name of public safety.

We’re supposed to get our D back soon, but until then I am a faithful scribe at the Hayward aily Review. That cheap shot you are thinking about taking? Go ahead if you really want to, but spare the obvious.

    For Obama Newage,

    With respect to your questions earlier this week. Please excuse me for answering on this new posting, but my finger gets tired scrolling down through 91 entries.
    THE ATTORNEY GENERAL’S OPINION:
    This answer may be a little long but I hope that it helps.
    As I read it, the problem with the appointment of Mr. Armas occurred because someone did not read the entire opinion, meaning:
    1. A person may be appointed/elected to the board of education as long as the spouse has been serving in their position in HUSD for at least one year prior to the appointment/election.
    2. Mrs. Armas has worked for HUSD for quite a number of years, and until recently she was a principal.
    3. Approximately 7 months ago, she was promoted to the position she now holds in the district office.
    4. There is the “rub”…she had not been in her current position for one full year, prior to the appointment of Mr. Armas. Technically, Mr. Armas could not be appointed as a trustee.
    5. It appears as if the legal team working for HUSD did not think it would be a problem and chose to overlook the technicallity.

    This matter may be of little concern to many in the public and to many within HUSD, however as I read the AG’s opinion the Armas appointment should not have happened. Of course this is just my interpretation of the AG’s opinion.

    With respect to your comments regarding Mr. Armas, while they may not sit well with others, I do believe that it is your right to voice them, since he is an elected public official and quite capable of consulting an attorney if he feels that you have crossed the line in your statements/opinions.

    Update: As of yesterday, the “D” is still out for repair.

    Ms. Booth you are a very smart lady. Thank you for making clear about the Armas conflict interest but why dont the district attorney or the alameda office of education come in and sit this thing strait or the state education department. The things you say many people in governement need to be reading what you say.

    In Oakland many things have been done so that does not happen like in Hayward with a board member like Jesus Armas getting his hiring his kids or his wife working in the personel as the manager.

    Oakland is doing better than Hayward and we never had a townhall meeting or went after the parolees for their kids being absent.

    You all in Hayward wake up you are being done wrong by this crooked district. Ms. Booth god bless you but what can I do to help for what you said about this mess with Armas. That Armas every time he speaks he sounds like he is jiving he is not board material. Nothing but rotten apples and bad oranges in trying to say what he did before is ok for the board.

    Armas is a bad apointment. Mr. Kyle is right about him mismerizing us..Mr. Armas is mesmerizing us on how to hire your family and get away with it. DO NOT VOTE FOR ARMAS.

    Ms. Booth I like so much what you say I am going to post it here again and send a copy to Obama to clean this up in Hayward. I have told many people to read what you have to say. How can we get a copy of what you read Ms. Booth. Can you post that attorney decision here for us?

    Ms. Booth you are light of hope in this blog!

    Freedom of speech lets us tell all what we feel about our politicians and government.

  • John W. Kyle

    Obama new age;

    So again we see evidence of your living in Oakland but you have also stated earlier that you will be voting against Mr. Armas.

    Too bad you were not present at the time Mr. Armas was interviewed by the four Trustees doing the decision making. You would have learned how articulate the man is and how, prior to the interview process, two people rose up at public comments to suggest thst he be the choice.

    Had Armas not been the choice, Mr. McGee was the more acceptable person available.

    AGAIN, YOU RENAIN UNABLE TO DISCERN THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN FREEDOM OF SPEECH AND “lICENSE”

    “lICENSE” IS DEFINED SEVERAL WAYS IN ‘WEBSTERS COLLEGIATE DICTIONARY”. iN DEFINUITUION 3A.) IT IS DESCRIBED AS “FREEDOM THAT ALLOWS OR IS USED WITH IRRESPONSIBILITY”

    I WOMDER WHY IT IS THAT YOU ONLY JOINED IN MAKING CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE HAYWARD BLOG AT A POINT in TIME NEAR IMMEDIATELY AFTER MR. ARMAS’ SELECTION AS THE REPLACEMENT FOR MS.GONZALEZ.

    IS IT POSSIBLE THAT YOUR DAUGHTER WAS THE YOUNG THIN afro anerican woman who was one of those who applied for the appo0intment? Is it possible she is your daughter?

    My 80 YEAR old memory seems to tell me that she was involbved with Oakland Schools…..but in addition she was a patrent of a child or children attending M. L. King Mddle sohool IN HAYWARD?

    Your charge that I have been ‘stalking’ your daughter is the center piece of my discuaaions with an attorny. Did you follow up on Ms. Booth’s advice that you report my reputed actions to Hayward Police?
