I second Eric Pena's comments and quote of Lee Iacocca. I also want to point out that last year during a hearing about school funds, Ruby Simmons told the Legislature, and therefore the people, that she was able to purchase a brand new Ford Explorer through a grant her department received from the federal government. She also stated that this money was for her to use at her "discretion."
This being the case, would it not have been her "discretion" to use these funds to repair a school, hire a teacher or purchase school supplies? Her "discretion" obviously does not mean taking care of our children; it means taking care of herself. Like some senators have already said, Ruby Simmons needs to be removed!
