Can PUSD board members be actively involved in the 'Yes on E' campaign?
Original post made by Resident, Another Pleasanton neighborhood, on Mar 5, 2011
My neighbor last night showed me all the emails he/she has been getting from the Yes on Measure E folks (my neighbor gets them because of past support/endorsement for measure G). Many emails are signed "Sincerely, Joan Laursen" and on the latest email, they have a paragraph about lawn signs, and it says to contact the "lawn sign coordinator" which happens to be Valerie Arkin. That is two board members actively involved, as measure E lead and lawn sign coordinator.
So we have a board member emailing people asking them to work phone banks, giving updates on the Yes on E campaign, etc. And one of her emails gives the name of another board member to get their 'yes on e' sign.
Does anybody know the rules? Can board members be actively involved in a campaign to promote a parcel tax?
