Letters: 2 DUSD board members should resign

The people in the city of Surprise voted for a Dysart Unified School District Governing Board that was going to hold the district responsible for their actions and make sure that the No. 1 priority was the kids and the teachers.

But now those very people that were voted in to hold the district’s feet to the fire are the ones being attacked. I’m confused, as are millions of people all around the world, with the upside down culture we live in right now.

The ones who should be questioned for their non-action are Traci Sawyer-Sinkbeil and Jo Grant. Traci definitely needs to step down. She’s already been on the board far too long and has not one time voted against what the district demands or held them accountable.

Instead, she wants to be seen as being nice. And she is nice, but she is also very wrong for our kids and teachers. She’s a rubber stamp for the district and has far too much support from the union. Not a good mix for our kids.

Jo will do and say anything to anyone to get them to “like” her and vote for her. She speaks out of both sides of her mouth but truly only stands for what the district wants regardless of the negative impact on our kids and teachers.

So step up Surprise — start demanding that Traci and Jo do the right thing for our kids and teachers or step down and let someone else make the difficult decisions necessary for our kids and their futures.
