Bejarano cost them $50,000? Or was it Jack White who "negotiated" the settlement with Ambriz? I actually read the report that was printed by the Tribune. Even if everything she said was true, her whole account sounded fishy. And while I'm no lawyer, I've never heard of a settlement being approved without so much as a lawsuit being filed.
How does a truck driving female mouth get away with $50,00.00? I wouldn't mind making some money. All you district people really need to see beyond the mirror & expose this Ambriz person for what she really is.

So it was Mike Atkisson who is to blame for the District's woes. You mention a lot of things he knew about, how do you know? If you knew what was going on and were so outraged why didn't you report it to someone higher up the food chain. Oh, don't want to make waves, or put your job on the line? If you have firsthand knowledge, than you also know the Maintenance Foreman doesn't have too much say so at the District. Never did, even when Karl was there. If somebody in an administrative position wants something done or someone protected it is a done deal. Try to correct a wrong, better pack your bags and be ready to hit the ground running. So Olivia leaves work 2 hours early every day, what are you and Mike the only ones that know this? Fred left work 3 hours early for over two years and only Mike knew it? You seem to suggest you knew about it, and so did lots of others, didn't they say something to someone besides Mike Atkisson? You have been so outraged by the conduct of this foreman but haven't done or said anything to anyone above him until now? So Mr. Rosy, don't make waves, don't shake things up is more a description of a BPUSD employee than of an individual. I know there were some people that made waves, but they were given their walking papers just prior to all the questionable activity discussed here. If you happen to work in the Maintenance Dept. how many times have you asked Mike for a favor or to let something slide? The District might have been better served with an outside person taking over the Maintenance Department, why do you think they didn't try? Could be because Mike Orona's inability would have been found out in the first hour. Maybe too many questions would have been asked of Skavarna and the School Board about hiring, job bids, performance. Mike took the position he was offered, and those that offered are glad he did. He made it possible for them to slide without knowing their head from a hole in the ground. The District under Skavarna and Bejarano used the following criteria for promoting and bringing in new employees, Size 2 hat, size 12 shoe, you are perfect and qualified. If Mike busts his butt because his employees won't, at least he is trying. Besides it is impossible for any boss to know what his employees are during 24/7. At some point trust has to be part of the equation. My last word on this, if Mike is so bad and breeds such corruption, covers up everybodies misdeeds, lies, and cheats the District why is he still in his position. How come you never reported his activities to anyone else? Why are you saying all of this stuff here behind some made up name? Why not stand up and let your voice be heard at the District. Maybe you like your job, its benefits, it relatively relaxed working atmosphere, the lenient nature of your boss? Or maybe it's because the last people that did that were given the high hat and rudely kicked to the curb with nary a whimper from all the "stand up" employees at the Snakepit.

Simply put...The District would rather pay people off then dragging it through the costly and legnthly legal process. In this case, It makes a board member look bad and in reality, everybody knows how bad Olivia's mouth is. Who was really harrassing who? The District may have been able to beat this one in court.
Bejarrano may have cost the District 50k, but Mike Orona cost the District ??? Example: Fred
caught with his hand in the cookie jar, but still entitled to his retirement? What does that cost the District?
Is that District policy? "Resign and we won't prosecute you" or does that only apply to their friends?
I am an ex-student from BP and want to know, whatever happened to the large sum of money stolen from the ASB when the principal from SV who was a VP at BP was in charge. She was moved to North Park and once again dad was there for the clean up. That was our money. Maybe someone should investigate that and give it back.

At least he doesn't look like a hard core fresh off the prison yard gang banger who intimidate with his look and postured gimp walk like Bejarano. Dig a little deeper, looking like a student is no insult if that's your aim.

Back to the question of who to vote for; I'm not sure any of them should be reelected. White seldom has a comment in the minutes of the meetings, Dominguez is laughable. Wants to be called "Dr." when it is only an honorary title. Corona looks more like a student (and dresses like one) and I'm not sure he's ever had an original thought about the schools; while Rubio is a non-entity, to me at least. On the other hand, sometimes the devil you know is better than the one you don't. Look what happened when Bejarano was elected. I've never seen the district employees so afraid for their jobs and dignity as when he was in power. So, throw them all out and bring in newbies who won't know that they are being bamboozled, or keep one or two who are wise to the ways of the district? Think hard.

No, it wasn't my aim to insult Sergio, just another item where "inappropriate" comes to mind. He showed up at several graduation events in student-like apparel.
I agree with you assessment of Bejarano. I've heard it that Orona and Bejarano were homeys "back in the day". Anyone know anything about that?

What people seem to overlook is the overwhelming sense of fear that has taken hold over maintenance office employees. Don't you remember when 5 or 6 of the "guys" were marched in and given their walking papers over nothing? And the idiotic idea that a district of this size doesn't need a locksmith? That was about as stupid as it gets! Anyone been out at the schools when all of the locks in the doors have been jammed with glue, toothpicks, etc? Thank you Mr. Bejarano. I think he had a friend he wanted in, until the Union stepped in.

Ladies and gentlemen,

As the local newspaper endorsed these three candidates, here are the top ten reasons you should NOT elect Jack White as I believe he is the man responsible for all the chaos and lies in BPUSD.

1. Jack White abuses the power of authority such as cleaning up the mistakes and lies by his daughter (current principal of Sierra Vista High)

2. He is only running to protect and maintain his daughter's job here.

3. He used to hunt and catch innocent hard working illegal immigrants during his service for the police.

4. He is endorsing Blanca Rubio, someone who shouldn't be running for this in the first place since her permanent residence doesn't lie here in Baldwin Park, but she used her relative's name under the registrar's office.

5. He is a white supremascist whether you believe it or not.

6. His community involvement is really low compared to the other candidates.

7. He has a lot of money and capable of manipulating voters and even the local newspaper to endorse him and his people.

8. He has a lot of ego and too much power to control the board.

9. He was a former law enforcement and should have known better the district should have defend itself than just giving up and letting an ordinary citizen to walk away with $50,000.

10. He does not simply represent the city of Baldwin Park, nor the predominantly Hispanic community.

Because the Tribune mentioned about his records and successes in Baldwin Park, these shouldn't be reflected merely by him, but by the whole district board team. It shows the selfishness act and deception that White was behind all of the success here. That is definitely NOT true but of course, he illegally BRIBED them to publish an article in favor of just him and his own people.

Therefore, do NOT vote for White and Rubio. Both are someone you cannot trust and depend on the long term investment here in Baldwin Park. Thank you

My last post. First forgive me for the rude and crude comments I made to one of those posting earlier. It was out of line, uncalled for, and exactly what fear and discontent breed. I knew all the Maintenance guys given their walking papers. It was a well known fact they were being earmarked for the chopping block long before it became official. Each one of them had one thing in common and it was no secret what it was. Ken, Roger, and Charley had confrontations with one of the 3 ratkateers(Skvarna, Orona, Bejarano). Ken wouldn't cowtow to Bejarano and his idiotic demands, and stood toe to toe with him on many occasions. Roger wanted to get rid of Fast Eddie, bad attitude, bad performance, just didn't cut it as a painter. Turns out Fast Eddie was connected to the infamous "3" and even though Roger documented Eddie shortcomings, he was told to cool his heels. Charley actually filed a complaint with the District regarding Bejarano's blatent disregard for District Policy and his unprofessional and disrespectful behavior towards its employees. The union was also involved sort of, and he had a face to face with Jack White, and was told Bejarano wasn't a problem and Charley was the one making a mistake. Of course we all knew he was toast anyways, the word came down from Skvarna about that when he planned to attend a board meeting to ask why Bejarano didn't have to follow board member guidelines. I guess my point is a few people can dominate many if the many are in disarray and fighting amongest themselves. If the employees at the District are really so unhappy and angry why don't you join forces, forget your differences, and together make the changes necessary to restore what you once seemed to like so much. Force the union to get involved, not one individual at a time, but as a group. I know the union there is totally weak, but it is only its members that make it strong. Stand up, go public, stop whispering and start shouting. Just a thought but it can't be worse than what you are enduring now. I wish all of you good luck, the place won't change from the outside even with new board members.

I can't stand Bejarano and all he put us through during his reign of terror, but I think the way to clean up what's going on in Maintenance from Skavarna to Orona, to Patrick and even Mike all we have to do is vote him in because he'd kick their asses all over town for their disloyality to him and how they turned their two-faced backs on him when the chips were down.
I SAY VOTE ANTHONY J. BEJARANO and don't look back.

Not correcting you but make it clear that the bet was placed by Mike Orona for Skavarna. The placed bet lost. Skvarna said he couldn't pay. Willie obviously had to come up with the money, so it came from his own pocket, out of the mouths of his children.
Willie had no recourse. He'd have been in trouble if he had turned him in(and to whom?)he was screwed.
He knew he couldn't stay, they wanted him to but working here after being screwed around like that by the two people who control your work day was shit. They f--ked him and smiled doing it.
Skavarna is a lieing, cheating, back stabbing, unqualified louse.
You Missed Something wrote:
That bet was made by Mike Orona.
Willie would have been in trouble, big trouble if he pushed for the money back.
He left because he couldn't look a man in the face who ripped him off, money out of his own pocket, and smiled doing it.
Nothing here has changed.
And that is the truth.

we all work for BPUSD, the place he terrorized and intimidated people for so long.
not to mention he left behind his fecal matter in the shape of Eddie the useless prison punk behind for us to deal with. take the chance that bejarano will fill jobs with more of his friends like this one? yea right. get over it.
seriously, you have to be stupid to believe you are changing anyone's mind who actually dealt with Bejarano.

Why no real names?
Why have these district horrors gone on for so long?
Lets see what happens if you did speak up at the district…….
You would be fired or asked to resign.
As employees I know it is our choice to work here no one is forcing us to work here.
If you see day in and day out the goings on around you it hurts.
If you are a good employee it tears at you everyday.
__________
Here is just one case of how it really works at the district office……
Have your friends pull strings to get you in …..
No high school diploma … no problem ……..
About to get in trouble again ……..Tell everyone that a board member is your uncle to scare them.(Trust me it works)
The board member falls out of good graces with the district office ……change of plans.
Start butt kissing the next flavor of the month man in power and start throwing his name around.(Still working to this day)
Want a job but someone else has it …. Call in your favors again and get him fired.
(Even though he was doing a fantastic job)
Job flies you and other apply (but you know the job is ear marked for you ... remember you called in your favors.)
Everyone else is called in to go through the motions …. But you are getting the job remember.
Oops we forgot you don’t even have a high school diploma …….
Job gets put on hold …. While you go back to school to try multiple times to get your GED.
You get your GED … you’re a shoe……. you get your job.
So how can you show your loyalty to the district for your new position …
Rob them blind ……
You even said if anyone tries calling you on any of the thefts … you would just blame the employee who you just got fired.
Now the fun begins …….
Set your own hours ….
Come and go as you like ….
Do the worst job you possibly can ….
Make trips out to our schools, threaten staff, insult, ogle and make sexually charged comments to female staff and teachers.
Bring naked pictures of your wife and show them to everyone who will take the time to look.
This is just one employee I speak of ……..and this is just the tip of the Ice burg &#61514;
Anyone got a guess at who I speak of?
