They don't know why. It's similar to our national political scene.
I can only hope someone will come along and put him in his place. I was a big fan of Julian Castro but have lost a lot of respect for him over the last couple of years. The switcharoo incident did not bother me much as much as the pre-k thing but little things add up and before I know it...I find myself not liking the guy anymore.

The reason the switcharoo thing bothered me is because it speaks to ethics. Did it affect policy? No. Not in the least. But if we've got someone that's willing to do things like that in his day to day life, how can we trust him to do the right thing when our money is at stake, and when he's being pursued by special interest groups, as all politicians are.

Nobody's perfect, but a blatant move like that tells us he's not to be trusted with larger things. And he's proven he's not.

I'm hoping the constant chipping away at the public's trust will catch up with him.

Cheez, am I getting paranoid or what?
No i dont think so..soylent green is about the rich feeding the poor soylent green...made from people.

Unless preK 4 SA is gonna eat kids, its ok by me.
