FYI, the following notice from the Burlingame Elementary School District:

BSD Board Appointment

Trustee Greg Land is resigning his position on the Burlingame School Board to join the San Mateo Union High School Board of Trustees. The BSD Board is accepting letters of intent to fill the remaining portion of Trustee Land's term ( 2 years). Letters are due November 30, 2015 and should be received by 4PM and should include candidates experience and reasons for wanting to apply for the appointment on the board. Letters can be dropped off at the District Office, 1825 Trousdale Drive or emailed to Kirsten Diktakis, Executive Assistant to the Superintendent at [email protected].

communities can do better

Joe, sounds like Nagel's quote, no?

But seriously, what a condescending statement, as if only Nagel and her friends run for office to "do something" and everyone else is just trying to "be somebody".

Regardless, open, free elections among citizens and the free speech and debate that elections generate is at the core of what our society purports to strive for.

I say purport, because many people, especially in our area are actually against free speech and work very hard, even quite unethically to silence people that don't share the same perspective with them.

Our communities can do better than accept this culture.

Thank you to Lorne for posting the BSD board opportunity.

Mr. Land, don't forget that Senator Jerry Hill just publicly "called out" the SMUHSD board for being arrogant, and not listening to the public that they serve.

As a follow up to my earlier post above, the Burlingame Elementary School District will be appointing a new trustee this evening to complete Greg Land's term. The five candidates under consideration are Michael Jarrett, Joelle Kaufman, Elizabeth Kendall, and Doug Luftman. PDFs of their letters of intent are included in the following meeting agenda link:

Ms. Kendall would be a great choice; fine mother and spouse; astrophysicist, patient and kind.
