Original post made by bitsy on May 27, 2010

Kay Ayala had to be told to get off school property this afternoon while she was carrying her big No on D sign just an example of overstepping bounds

How dare Kay Ayala exercise her democratic rights publically! Doesn't she know she should just use her millions to send fake letters from the Mayor to all the houses in Pleasanton expressing her views? How quaint!

First Amendment Rights apply to public thoroughfares. Schools, even though they are publicly owned, are restricted because there are minor's there. People have to have permission to be on school grounds. Why would she enter school property anyway?What's the point? Sje could stand on the sidewalk across the street.

This is true. They were on school property yesterday at pickup.

So I guess teachers are allowed to campaign on school property by wearing buttons and such but the public is not? Every school board election I see teachers wearing buttons to promote their union candidate for school board.

People are allowed to be on the sidewalks in front of the school doing what they want; you do not need to cross the street. The sidewalk in front of the school is public property. Sometimes the schools think the sidewalk is their property and they have to be corrected.

Also, after school hours the school is much more of a public venue. People or organizations can use the facilities. You see church's using the facilities, youth groups unrelated with the school, city planning meetings, and I believe I remember some political activites that were done after school. Outsiders are not allowed in the campus during school hours but it gets a bit murky after the last bell rings.

If Kay can, anyone can! Send in the Neo-nazis!

Not according to Ed Code. If there are students present and staff there it is not murky at all!

If Kay was a staff member at the school she would have permission to be on campus and she could wear a button too!

So I guess you have to be a member of the union in order to campaign on taxpayer funded school facilities. Sounds like the unions have a captive audience, our children, with no opportunity for opposing viewpoints.

So Stacey, your neo-nazi group have to join the union.

That woman is irrelevant. She's the Rosie O'donnell of local politics. Even with things as bad as they are why would anyone consider her for elected office. I'd rather elect one of those clanging wind-up monkies.

How funny that Kay would chose to stand in front of a school, of all places, to do her campaigning. She fights at any expense to this community to save the hills, yet turns around and fights to NOT save our schools at meetings this year. How pathetic that she had to be asked by the school to leave, making them the bad guy once again. Your telling me she didn't know that rule? Yeah Right!

A man was attacked for holding a sign on school grounds for Prop 8, the outrage over his presence was quite an issue and the police were called. How is it that Kay is above the rules?

Next, the No on D crowd will probably lay down in the middle of the Valley/ Hopyard intersection at rush hour just to get attention. Pathetic.

Last time I checked sign waving is free, and the NO on D folks do not have a big bank roll. Maybe the land owner would pay them to go home! The Lins seem to be paying everyone else, if they have ran up $379,000 in expenses to push their agenda-so far.
