|2008 GCCCD board
[Below is the prescient essay I wrote about Rosinski in 2006.]
Questions for Ms. Rosinski:
Did Barbara Abeyta come to you, the President of her CTA local, and ask for advice as to whether an effort
should be made to correct her illegal OAH decision, Ms. Rosinski? Did you support, as Abeyta did, firing a
teacher for filing grievances and a lawsuit? That was the order coming down from CTA headquarters in
Burlingame, and no one messes with Beverly Tucker and Caroline Doggett, right? Certainly not if they want
support from the Democratic Party in an election.
Did you give Barbara Abeyta any support in such an effort? I ask this as a Democrat who is disgusted with
craven obedience of the Democratic Party to the teachers union.
[The answer to this question is a resounding YES.
I discovered in 2008 that Rosinski was on the board that directed Tim O'Neill, the executive director of South
County Teachers United, to cover up illegal actions, and authorized CTA lawyers to help him. Rosinski was
also president of the teachers union in National School District, where Barbara Abeyta worked.]
2006 candidate for Grossmont High School District Board,* former President
National City Elementary Teachers Association.
*Update 2006: Ms. Rosinski is running for Grossmont-Cuyamaca Community College District instead. Was
someone afraid Rosinski would be an embarrassment to the teachers at GUHSD? The truth is, Rosinski is very
likely among the least dishonest of CTA officials.

Have you questioned your candidate, Mary Kay Rosinski, about
financial support of illegal activitiesby CTA when she was
president of National City Elementary Teachers Association?
Why not help your candidate by supporting efforts to rectify
illegal actions by CTA against teachers?
Or have you advised her to stay in line with CTA, to keep the
campaign money flowing?

|I think I made a mistake when I wrote this:
|While reading this San Diego Union Tribune article about Mary
Kay Rosinski's big-money backers, I was wishing that the
reporter had asked Mary Kay Rosinski why she didn't run against
incumbent Bill Garrett. I have concluded that it was because
Rosinski didn't want to criticize Garrett's corrupt decisions.
She's not anti-corruption, she's just pro-union.
She targeted the one board member who had questioned corrupt
actions, trustee Timothy Caruthers, who complained to the FBI
after learning that district Chancellor Omero Suarez had the
buyout clause deleted from his contract. Suarez re-inserted the
buyout clause when Caruthers made inquiries about it.
Rosinski has a record of paying union lawyers to cover up
wrongdoing in Chula Vista Elementary School District. GCCCD
can count on Rosinski to work well with GCCCD's current
lawyers; her union lawyers worked with Stutz, Artiano, Shinoff &
Holtz in at least one case in South County Teachers United when
Rosinski was a board member. (Her work for SCTU was detailed
in Rosinski's campaign materials.)
I got fooled by Rosinski when she said she had questions about
GCCCD's legal expenditures. I imagine the only question she'll
ask Stutz law firm is, "How much money do you need to keep this
I think I made a mistake voting for
Mary Kay Rosinski.
