Just as with the removal of our school principals, Ayinde lies to the board. Trustee Gutierrez confirms:

Board member Jose Gutierrez said he agreed with Coladonato and leaned toward voting against ending the ISP. He also expressed frustration that the board wasn't given a full understanding of who would be affected by the decision.

Trustee Gutierrez lies because he knows first hand that principals were not evaluated as Trustee Blakley has claimed.

Trustee Gutierrez lies because he knows his spouse has been undermining and personally attacking his students' teachers and the principals for her family's benefit, both financially and academically.

Trustee Gutierrez lies because he knows he has been stirring up Latino parents with lies to harass and undermine the principals at school sites.

Trustee Gutierrez lies while he harasses district office staff.

So many lies. The truth will be coming out. He is Nelson 2.0. He needs to be censured and removed from the board. Send him and Rudolph packing. And then vote out the rest of the board at the next election.
