If you want your kids back in school, VOTE FOR Karna! VOTE FOR Jesse!

If you want your kids home doing distanced (no) learning or hybrid for the next TWO years, depressed, isolated, attempting to commit suicide, even high schoolers who previously had plans of attending college dropping out of school because they don't have enough laptops per family or good enough WiFi even if they did (all of which I personally have seen in the last week alone) then go ahead and vote for Katie or Matt. Yes, TWO MORE YEARS is how long the SCC Health Officer Cody said (in Simitians' town hall on Monday, recorded) she plans to keep up masks and distancing. And by the way, local private schools and charter schools have thousands on their waiting lists, and are no longer accepting applications. So you unless you: move out of SCC to Del Mar with other Bay Area Families flocking there (in person 5 days/week); move out of state (to any other state outside CA and the Bay Area with schools already back to classes and sports in person across the US since Labor Day); start homeschooling all your kids; or start your own Charter School .... then you're trapped. For TWO MORE YEARS OF THIS ABSURD 100% online or "hybrid" going two days per week. No joke.

Does anyone else not find the need for this level of contribution in a local school board race to be upsetting. In a town of about 66,000 people, these folks have raised over $90,000 for a school board race.

I would like to know how much in advertising is spent with PA Online and the print Weekly Version, as well as the Post.

We've receive emails, texts, and printed mailers.

@facts - agree. Ironic that candidates campaigning on equity stance don't practice it with their own school board race and run a grass roots campaign.

How much of the spend went to the Weekly or Post and influenced their backing of candidates? An earlier article that listed a candidate spending several thousand to have their candidate statement written. If they can't write their own statement are they best for the board?
Let's hope we get the right people on the board, not just the ones who can create door hangers, flyers and ads etc.
