  • Downey Teacher says:

    No brainer, Mendoza’s wife was elected to the ABC trustees, so naturally she would appoint or or award this ABC superintendent/ PHD to woman of the year by her husband. If the superintendent had any ethics, should would decline, because of potential conflict of interest, plus using her state employment in order to win Senator award. Mrs. Mendoza is only using this 2nd husband for political gain and in return, Mr. T Mendoza is using this wife for step-papa advertisement; since Tony has no natural children thru marriages. Both Mendoza’s are disgusting democratic’s.
