News from Twin Rivers: Dr. Martinez is doing good work.

with one comment

Bruce Maimam wrote an excellent article in today’s Sacramento Bee about how Dr. Martinez has been doing excellent work to move the district forward in a positive direction, and thus the issues with Cortez Quinn are only a mild distraction. And, other than Cortez possibly costing the district money because he is being obstinate, it won’t hurt the district.

I have to echo Bruce’s opinion.  My dealings with Dr. Martinez thus far have shown him to be a good leader who has had to swim in a minefield filled with sharks.  (To mix some metaphors)

Regarding Cortez, I think the Bee is quite right in its recent  editorial, that the board should vote to ask him to resign.
