  • Janie Ortega might be the new CEO for CPS. She might bring in her good buddy Ann from Boston to mix things up. Too many CAO's without common sense. Her boy uncle Tom is a pawn looking to be a principal. I'd like to see him hustle on up to the third floor in my building using the stairs and break up a fight with his data and Ipad.
