NEW BOARD PRESIDENT RAMOS CAN'T LEAVE THE HOOD MENTALITY

Before we get to the congratulatory part of this story, let's talk about the vote last night regarding Avila and the contract.  Interesting how Mr. Ramos abstained from voting, not wanting to take a stand for what is right.  But we don't forget that he received money from Avila's father during the campaign, so we do understand what influenced his decision.

Ok now back to what Mr. Ramos calls his significant accomplishment, voted by his endearing colleagues as Board President.

Mr. Ramos,

We want to offer congratulations for being chosen by your peers and yet it's bittersweet because the people selecting you are not necessarily qualified to speak on what the position truly means.  We hear you saying that a "generational mexican american" from the North Side is ready to lead FWISD.  We don't understand what generational mexican american means because in this city it's just another word for the help.  In your neck of the woods we are sure it means a lot and so we come to our topic "THE HOOD."  The slogan was a good campaign gimmick to attempt to connect with the neighborhood that you had left and suddenly returned to get elected.  We won't rehash the past because it's stated fact.  But what we want you to understand is that it's time to leave the Hood Mentality.  If we are correct, the hood is based on a style of living that at times is deficient of meeting the basic needs of its residents, a dumbing down of what its people should be aspiring to.  Why can't we discuss moving beyond a hood education, a hood standard of living that is basically substandard.

You in no way carry the latino mantle nor speak for the latino community that is controlled by the same people that supported you and continue to control YOU.  Let's be honest you have been silent on the issues that matter to us as teachers, parents and students.  You have stood quiet while people's lives have been ruined and at a time when our workplace is a disaster. You have presided over a failed bond issue that you so desperately wanted and sold your soul for it and still watch the administration continue to push FWISD down.   So if this is what you call coming back to the HOOD then we don't want any part of it because it means that our environment will remain the same or worse.

Why can't you speak about moving beyond the hood into opportunities that create a better future.  If you are truly about helping everyone then your words and actions must show it.  Let's get away from the mexican stereotype and stop pretending to be someone you are not.  Your inner circle may have the respect and admiration for you sir but believe me outside of that is a whole different world.

So as you parade around claiming to lead the FWISD, correct the damage that has been done to us and then we can call your tenure as president LEGITIMATE.

  1. This womanizing a**hole is still wet behind the ears and they vote to make him Board President? His baby's Mama is an employee isn't she? Didn't HE personally get her the job? I am reporting this to those websites this morning. Enough is enough. He displays his manhood by allegedly fathering children outside his marriage, yet not by taking a stand FOR children and voting. He abstained! What a wimpy *********.

  2. What do you expect? This was the payback for dropping his opposition to the Farrington Field/Terrell scam.

  3. What a surprise that the board would pick Ramos a new member of the board that has done nothing to help the kids or teachers of the district as the new president. Wouldn't you think that they would pick someone who has worked hard at protecting the district, the kids, and the teachers instead, someone like Ann Sutherland. No wait that would be the right thing to do and with the exception of voting down Avila's paycheck last night when was the last time this board, with the exception of Ann, did anything that was right. I believe they would resurrect Danny Manny as board president before they would put her in the job. Just think we can look forward to Ashley Paz as the next president.

  4. I wonder if Ramos actually BELIEVES the crap he spews?

  6. His girlfriends will be assured a job for at least the next 6 months! I wish his so-called wife would contact me. I have proof!

  7. Why does he keep accusing the residents of Northside of living in the "hood?" Shouldn't they be offended by now?

  8. Perhaps she knows and doesn't care? Why 6 months? How about the qualifications of these women? (Aside from the obvious) We all can guess that it's cronyism once again but, why aren't we making that the focal point of your complaint? If you have proof that compromises him then post it here! Tap on the small pic icon below to add it's very easy. Sadly, some women tolerate that crap so I doubt you will get very far with that! Men like that are usually repeat cheaters trying to boost an under-developed ego or well you know. The real crime would be benefiting in any way from his elected position and that's what readers need to see!

  9. And the scandals just keep on coming....... just as these fools are about to search for a New Superintendent (a SECOND) time with the SAME search firm. Unbelievable. What new scandals await us? What new litigation? What new embarrassments from Linares?

  10. This Board and all of their corrupt handlers from Dickerson to Koehler to Manning to Needham to Robbins to Jackson to Williams all need to be exposed. Here is another organization dedicated to reporting government corruption in Texas. Please check this out and e-mail them your story or tip.

  12. This is for all of you nay-sayers out there. I just read one of the links provided on the previous story about Avilla and his contract. It proves corruption with sitting School Board Members and FWISD administration has been in place a LONG time. This was just the latest attempt by someone (Avilla) to get a piece of the pie. Here is one of the FEW remaining articles reporting the indictments relating to the fraud perpetrated on FWISD taxpayers by Needham, Ray and others. Print it NOW lest it vanish as so many others in the Star Telegram did. Here it CLEARLY reports that "personal concrete work" was done for Needham. It also talks about potential "deals" being struck in return for cooperation against the two "fall guys". Wake up people! Needham was just re-elected by you sleeping fools. Sims and Moss are still there. Is it any wonder that Needham continues her dirty tricks spending untold millions in taxpayer money to silence people like Palazzolo, Chavez, Duran and others? Just how much remains to be seen.

    This is what a School Board President is... to have the backing for so many years and focused on students.
