editorial comment + shameless campaign rhetoric by smf
I received a couple of campaign mailers in my mailbox today, both adequate reasons – in my humble if self-serving opinion - to write me in!
While the UTLA/PACE mailer claims harm to laid off teachers, closed school libraries and bathrooms in disrepair – smf and 4LAKids claims that greater harm caused by policies favored and promoted by Sanchez, Villaraigosa, Broad, Perenchio, Garcia and Co. is to the 670,ooo students of the District. These so called Reformers have been in place running LAUSD by pulling strings from City hall and corporate boardrooms for six years – it is they that represent the failed business-as-unusual/status quo!
Luis Sanchez has identified no issue where he disagrees with Garcia or Mayor Tony – he will be a rubber stamp, validating the status quo.
Neither the so-called Reformers nor UTLA should be pulling the strings or calling the shots in LAUSD. LAUSD should not be run by union leadership or the downtown developers of LA Live, the new football stadium or The Grand Avenue Plan. There are 670,ooo Special Interests that need to be represented on the LAUSD Board of Ed by an independent voice, beholden only to parents, educators and the community.
The litmus test is first, last and always: What’s best for kids?
If you vote that way I’ll vote that way.
That’s the campaign pledge.

Here’s the lawn sign you won’t see – unless you make it yourself!
