“Get A Life”

Dear Editor,

I have read and kept up with the information you have shared with your readers regarding the problems Dr. Latonya Goffney has encountered with members of the board. Thank you for printing the truth. As an employee of the district for the past 28 years, I am and so many others are excited about the direction she is taking this district. Finally, someone with an agenda all about educating our kids and treating people fairly. Not for their own personal satisfaction and name recognition.

Please do not stop exposing the injustices that remains on the board. Since the publishing of many articles, Dr. Viola Garcia & Rose Avalos wants everyone to think that they are supporting Dr. Goffney. They are putting on this façade. Especially Dr. Garcia, she is trying to maintain the façade until the election, hoping she will be reelected to maintain her position on the national level. We need a strong candidate to run against her, she is using the board for her own personal agenda. She remains in constant contact with former Superintendent Dr. Bamberg, keeping up dissention and she actually thinks she is fooling everyone, but we all know nothing has changed with her. Dr. Garcia is soliciting candidates to run for the soon to be open position held now by Patricia Bourgeois, in an effort to stack the board with someone who will go along with her agenda. She wants nothing but to sabotage Dr. Goffney’s agenda. Her effort is to retain and maintain some of the old policies of racism, favoritism, mistreatment, and disrespect that we encountered from former Superintendent Wanda Bamberg, that’s why all confidential matters that are discussed amongst the board is communicated to Dr. Bamberg by Dr. Garcia. Violation of the oath.

Our advice to Dr. Bamberg is, “GET A LIFE & STAY OUT OF ALDINE’S BUSINESS.” You have done enough damage to Aldine ISD and there is no need to list all the damage you have done; you are clearly aware of it. Let it be known that Dr. Goffney has done more in one year, than you attempted to do in the ten years you held the position. As for you Dr. Garcia, if this agenda is not for you and have a problem doing what is right, LEAVE.

The strong support from our supporters will help us to cultivate an 18th Congressional District where everyone in it can thrive.” Edwards said. “Amanda understands the challenges that the hard-working folks of the 18th Congressional District face because she has never lost sight of who she is or where she comes from; she was born and raised right here in the 18th Congressional District of Houston,” said Kathryn McNiel, spokesperson for Edwards’ campaign. Edwards has been endorsed by Higher Heights PAC, Collective PAC, Krimson PAC, and the Brady PAC. She has also been supported by Beto O’Rourke, among many others.

As September 13th rolls around, we extend our warmest birthday wishes to the creative powerhouse, Tyler Perry, a man whose indomitable spirit and groundbreaking work have left an indelible mark on the world of entertainment. With his multifaceted talents as an actor, playwright, screenwriter, producer, and director, Tyler Perry has not only entertained but also inspired audiences worldwide, particularly within the African-American community, where his influence and role have been nothing short of powerful. Born in New Orleans, Louisiana, in 1969, Tyler Perry’s journey to stardom was a path riddled with adversity. Raised in a turbulent household, he found refuge in writing, using it as a therapeutic outlet. This period of introspection gave rise to one of his most iconic creations, Madea, a vivacious, no-nonsense grandmother who would later become a beloved figure in Perry’s works, offering a unique blend of humor and profound life lessons. Despite facing numerous challenges, including rejection and financial struggles, Perry’s determination and unwavering belief in his abilities propelled him forward. In 1992, he staged his first play, “I Know I’ve Been Changed,” which, although met with limited success, was a pivotal moment in his career. Unfazed by initial setbacks, Perry continued to hone his craft, and by 1998, he had successfully produced a string of stage plays that showcased his storytelling prowess.
