    CSEA has a “me too” for health benefits, nothing more. They were foolish enough to allow their “me too” for wages to be removed from their contract. Actually they don’t even have a current contract as of 10/31/2013. Wake up people and handle your business!

  2. Classified employee concerned about what I hear
    November 10, 2013 at 3:11 pm

    The classified is happy with the appointing of Nancy Smith and Juan Carrillo… I’m sure our board will work well with Joyce Ricks… the clasproductive village to raise a child, from the classified, to teachers, community and administrationsified employees worked hard to campaign with Nancy and Juan as well as Don Wilson… we are optimistic and forthcoming that this new board will do what’s needed to improve the relationships between the parents, children and staff to return Palmdale School District to a district that puts out a quality product, from the educated kids, too the best productive staff….

    I understand that Hugo has been allowing his teachers to bad month the CSEA board to the classified staff, this is not acceptable. It takes a productive team to finalize the process, each member must respect the other teams laws and regulations. I believe our board is willing to work with Hugo and PETA, but he must learn to respect our way as we respect PETA’s.

    If the classified, teachers, management and board are going to turn PSD around into a positive light. We need to remember what we are here for, the kids.

    • Quigley
      November 10, 2013 at 9:53 pm

      What do you mean “allowing his teachers”? They are not his teachers and if you are aware of some trash talking then say it. Don’t start more sh@# if you’re just blowing smoke!

    • Marissa
      November 11, 2013 at 9:14 am

      Welcome to the world of PETA under Hugo Estrada. You really didn’t think that your leadership would get a pass on not doing what they were expected to do right? PETA wanted Ricks endorsed, CSEA wouldn’t do it because they are the ones who knew exactly how incompetent she is.So, CSEA endorsed someone else, and w CSEA leadership is PETA’s next target. The only way he can unseat them is by creating dissent in the schools. It’s a strategy that works well, even when they have to resort to fabrication, it works well.

    • Get over it
      November 14, 2013 at 10:18 am

      What exactly are the teachers saying. How do you know he is “allowing” them to say anything?
      Doesn’t CSEA have “me too” clause that depends on teacher contracts?
      Agree with Quigly. Stop blowing smoke.

    • Astrid C. -CPRO 296
      November 16, 2013 at 10:36 pm

      I would first like to clarify that Chapter 296 is not solely reliant on the “me too” clause. We certainly have not sat back, kicked up our feet to let PETA do all the work for us. It may seem that way to many, but you must remember that our association has very different rules and regulations on how every matter is to be handled with our membership. This goes from voting on the T.A., to voting on which candidates to endorse for board of trustees.
      The comments our classified unit heard during the process were both positive and negative, but we are not going to linger on personal opinions. The point is that all 3 seats have new members and they key is to work alongside ALL board members to improve the district’s relationship with all employees and the community. Our endeavor is to work together as unions with a common goal, while respecting each others laws of governance.

    Biggest disappointnent of 2014 Election!!!

    Ledford re-elected Mayor of Palmdale
    After allowing the Palmdale College Eartquake Property purchase and wasting $5 Million tax payer dollars on it….. $450 sewer property annual property tax bill on his ctizens and Lancasters citizens….million dollar $ corporate give aways…..not fixing commuity blight and sidewalks for school kids….lieing to community about power plant reducing Palmdale citizens electric rates and it being clean.

    And the disappointment of Mike Adams & Steve Buffalo being re-elected to Antelope College Board for Wasting $5 million on Palmdale Earthquake College property purchase.

    Well see if they can redeem themselves!!!
    Along with Palmdale School Districtand AVUHSD for not paying attention to students future for not bring higher education opportunities to Palmdale and south AV.

Your vote DOES COUNT!!! Until THAT changes, nothing will. THEY are happy YOU are so ignorant….. unfortunately. Power to the people, it really does exist, if you exercise your voice on a ballot.

      Okay… It’s my turn to be Captain Obvious here. :-)

      513,000 resident in the Antelope Valley… Hmm. How many of those live in Palmdale, and were thus eligible to vote in the election? About 150,000.

      Of that 150,000… how many are of voting age (18)? I’d guess it is about 50%… so 75,000.. Of that 75,000… how many are actually registered to vote..? Etc, ETc..

      Yes, the turnout was still pretty pathetic.. but it looks like the real voter turnout for the Palmdale election was closer to 10%.

    Now, I’ve heard that Lynn Minidis was being supported by Lancaster interests. I don’t know for sure but last night on TWC3, she said that because of the litigation, her donors held back.

    Well, if she was Rex’s proxy candidate, that sure was poetic justice. Anyway, I heard her at the Chamber of Commerce debate and she couldn’t have been more unimpressive.

        November 8, 2013 at 10:18 am

        No…clearly the union did a very good job of lying to the public, standing on corners advocating for three very incompetent candidates, and illegally eletioneering in the schools, using our childre, and my own daughter to garner adult votes.

        Absolutley nothing is sacred to a person who will lower themselves to thos levels. And now, Mr. Cuestats will just call me names, and will deny any wrongdoing, or will say something condescending. Go for it…

        But, my guess is all we have to do now is watch the show the you union clowns started, as it will unravel, unwind, and hurt kids. And then you will tell more lies and make more excuses, and the ignorant will march right next to you.

    Pam, if you think you witnessed illegal behavior at the polls, please call the registrar! They would be best able to deal with the situation or help you better understand what you saw. Posting comments like that without basis only makes people even less likely to vote when there could be a very logical and legal explanation for what you witnessed, such as the electronic reader not working so your ballot was placed directly into the ballot box.

    • Pam
      November 6, 2013 at 1:33 pm

      DD81. Thank you for the advice. While It is so important not to scare away voters into apathy it is also important that voters be made aware when something does not seem quite right at the voting polls. We need to keep each other informed and on top of our rights as voters at these polls. We all to often feel powerless once we cast that ballet. The feeling that our vote may NOT be counted ALSO scares people into an apethetic state of citizenship. You are absolutely correct about informing the registrars office though so I will take your advice constructively. ; ) Long time voter.

      • DD81
        November 6, 2013 at 9:18 pm

        Pam, I hope the registrar’s office will be able to help settle this issue for you. I agree voters should be on the look out for anything that might be fishy. They also have the right to ask questions at the polling place if they see something they do not understand, and all are welcome and encouraged to watch every step of the process, from opening and closing the polls to the live cams at Norwalk that show how the ballots are handled and counted. Even provisional and vote by mail voters (of which I am usually one, seeing as I spend 15 hours volunteering on Election Day) can get assurance that their vote was counted by calling the registrar’s office after the official canvas.

        Please keep voting and encouraging others to do so; as you can see, turnout was pretty low, even for those local offices that affect everyone.

            Thank you, Palmdalian, for summing it up so well. There’s a lot of material there and probably more stuff that we don’t know about.

            Most Rex supporters defend each issue as a unique situation but fail to see the entire pattern in context.

            Yep Parris is a meddler. And I don’t like that either.

            But give me a break. Ledford has been playing the “Lancaster boogyman” card for much longer than even Parris has been in office. It’s Ledford’s go-to play. And it’s lame and small. He makes a mockery of his own “get along” moderate image.

            @Gary S So, Mayor Ledford allows fireworks in Palmdale to make Parris the boogyman.

            Mayor Ledford supports the building of a power plant to make Parris the boogyman.

            Mayor Ledford supports at-large council member elections to make Parris the boogyman.

            Don’t you have it backward, Gary?

            Parris is the attack dog and when Mayor Ledford responds, you make Mayor Ledford wrong. What conflict with Parris has Mayor Ledford initiated? What quarrel did HE start? What interference did HE cause in Lancaster’s business?

        Wow, that’s a lot of ugliness you’re carrying around with you. You can tell how classy people are when they even act badly when they win.
        Stay classy PETA folks. Hopefully it doesn’t scare people to much that people this ugly are teaching small children.

      She will probably be hanging around Steve Fox more looking for a job or political spotlight.

    I voted for LSD board and watched a poll worker put my form in a seperate box. I’m not making any accusations but in a town known for some pretty questionable election dealings and incumbent cronyism, It did cause me to raise an eyebrow.

    A total repudiation of the toxic governance of the current PSD board. The people have spoken loud and clear!!! New board – New vision.

      Hoping that Joyce Ricks works and protects the PSD Classified employees. They are not the LITTLE PEOPLE as she puts it, and they are very essential on the day to day events in the school district.

        Guess what Luisa!! Now that you no longer have a diverse board, and your PETA member friends have a super majority, they can go back to the bargaining table, remove their benefits cap, and pass all of that cost on to us “little people” just like they have for years.

        Get ready for reduced hours, no night custodians, etc., something will have to give for the entitled to get what they want.
