The discussion over the speed of the selection for San Diego Unified School Superintendent Cindy Marten will be discussed in this week's "Politically Speaking" with NBC 7's Gene Cubbison.

Marten, an educator for the past 25 years, has worked at Central Elementary School since 2002.

Bill Ponder, a retired university administrator and former candidate for the board, said he feels the choice - less than 24 hours after Bill Kowba announced his resignation - seemed a little hurried.

“There are great superintendents who have put in the time and have the background and experience to run a $1.2 billion operation,” Ponder said.

Scott Barnett, a member of San Diego Unified's board of trustees, said he's gotten two complaint emails.

“All of us are convinced 100% that Cindy Marten is the best,” Barnett said.

Barnett said he’ll be accountable to voters on how Marten performs.
