Councillor - Brad Winter

Albuquerque Public School officials are preparing to make the call on whether or not to delay classes for some of its schools Friday. APS Interim Superintendent Brad Winter says they actually hit the streets from as far west as To'hajiilee all the way to the East Mountains, and they're driving those roads starting at 2:30 a.m. They have to make the call on a two-hour delay by 5:30 a.m., when the school buses would hit the road.
Former Albuquerque Public Schools Superintendent Winston Brooks is suing the school district for $125,000, alleging that Interim Superintendent Brad Winter violated a section of last year's settlement agreement between the district and Brooks. The section of the agreement that Brooks and his attorney, Maureen A. Sanders of Sanders & Westbrook, PC, say was violated was a section that states "the board and central office administration will not disparage the conduct, character, performance, or ethics of Brooks or his wifeany violation of this provision which can be proven in a court of law will result in liquidated damages of $25,000."
Former Albuquerque Public Schools superintendent Winston Brooks is suing the district for $125,000 plus attorney's fees, alleging that his successor, Brad Winter, violated the terms of Brooks' resignation and settlement agreement with a handful of remarks to the Albuquerque Journal last fall. APS paid Brooks $350,000 in August to buy out the final two years of his contract.
