Why would Anaheim’s Pringle cabal – Lucille Kring, Gail Eastman and Kris Murray, line up behind AUHSD School Board candidate Roberto Baeza? The Pringle cabal doesn’t usually back Latinos so this move smells fishy.
And Baeza himself is damaged goods. He was demoted as a Principal at a neighboring school district, the Anaheim City School District, when he was teaching at Palm Lane Elementary. Apparently he was scheming to turn the school into a charter school, with the help of State Senator Bob Huff and former Democratic State Legislator Gloria Romero, according to the Liberal OC blog.
As it turns out Baeza has been all-in with the Pringle cabal for some time. He was appointed to the Anaheim Community Services Board by Murray, according to the Orange Juice Blog.
Rumor has it that Baeza blames Dr. Jose Moreno for his dismissal from Palm Lane Elementary but the reality is that if Baeza got caught red-handed scheming to turn the failing school he was in charge of into a charter school, then he only has himself to blame for the result. As Principal his job was to fix the problems at the school. His job was not to abandon ship.
The other candidates running for the AUHSD seat that Baeza is running for include two carpetbaggers – and one candidate with vast experience serving on the AUHSD School Board. That would be Thomas Hoagy Holguin, a local businessman who defeated cancer over the past year and decided to once again dedicate his life to improving local public schools.
We have endorsed Holguin and urge our readers to vote for him. Don’t fall for the Pringle candidate Baeza!
