Retired teacher and education advocate Bill Betzen mounts campaign against DISD bond proposal

Bill BetzenBill Betzen has created a website and organization to oppose the $1.6 billion DISD bond proposal.

Among many other reasons, Mr. Betzen points out the lack of transparency and accountability in the allocation of the funds. Specifically, he says on his website:

When you ask about the sources for these plans it is repeatedly said they come from the Future Facilities Task Force, members listed here. The members of that Task Force say they never voted on these plans as a group. Apparently there are no minutes available documenting Task Force meetings.  The Task Force also held many other public meetings allegedly seeking input, but there are no minutes or listings of the people who attended those meetings either. Again, there are no records.  The bottom line is that it appears as if all plans came from DISD staff at 3700 Ross, or from other unnamed community sources.

Dallas NAACP comes out against DISD bond proposal

DALLAS – August 17th, 2005 The Dallas chapter of the NAACP said Sunday its members will not support a proposed $1.6 billion bond for DISD schools because they have not seen enough details about the plan.

Arthur Fleming, chapter president, told reporters on Sunday that there is a perception that the bond money will not be spent equally across DISD schools, especially on campuses in the southern sector.

“I think they need to slow down, let the community see what’s in the bond package and then go from there,” Fleming says.

Mike Orozco Can’t Be Trusted On The Job Or With His Family

Perhaps, you received this mailing from FACTpac. Below, you will find the documentation to back up this mailing, as well as additional information which clearly makes Michael Orozco the wrong choice for constable, or any elected office.

Michael Orozco Can Not Be Trusted Front

Michael Orozco Can Not Be Trusted Back

Michael Orozco Cannot Be Trusted With His Family

According to a Dallas County Family Court document, Michael Orozco is apparently a mean drunk. In fact, while drunk, and in the presence of his children, he put his service revolver to his head and threatened to kill himself.

In fact, a Dallas County Family Court judge had to issue a restraining order to protect his Orozco’s children from Orozco. Orozco was restrained from having possession of his children for a period of time and further ordered that he not drink eight hours before seeing his children and in their presence.

Michael Orozco Cannot Be Trusted With His Current Job

Our mailing said,

Orozco was cited for dereliction of duty for leaving his duty assignment and going home without clocking out.

Orozco was cited for dereliction of duty for checking himself in service and then not reporting for duty.

The GPS on Orozco’s patrol car proved he was not on duty.

Orozco couldn’t be trusted out in a patrol car on his own, so Orozco was assigned to JP Court bailiff duty where the judge could “monitor” him.

Here’s the disciplinary report which shows that Michael Orozco cannot be trusted to do the job he has now without threats of being fired and being placed in a position where his behavior can be monitored.

Michael Orozco has a history of dereliction of duty. When he worked in Precinct 5, Michael Orozco was caught Working A Second PAID Job While On Duty, using County vehicles.

In direct violation of Dallas County personnel policy, Michael Orozco harassed fellow constable’s office employees by ridiculing their sexual orientation.

Michael Orozco Cannot Be Trusted With ThePrecinct 5 Constable’s Office

Michael Orozco can’t be trusted to care of his own family and he can’t be trusted to do the job he has now. Orozco’s “work ethic” is not that of a leader. Harassing fellow employees is not the behavior of a leader.

In a video on his website, Michael Orozco asks us to “put my leadership and experience to the test as your Dallas County Constable.”

The Fund Against Corruption has issued a voter warning against Michael Orozco.

We think Michael Orozco’s irresponsible and reckless behavior, both at home and at work, makes it clear that we cannot afford to give him a chance to destroy a constable’s office which runs effectively, efficiently, and without a hint of scandal under the leadership of incumbent Constable Beth Villarreal.

In Sum – Mike Orozco for Constable – No way!
