Town Square is mishandling the right paren.
So, click on the link, then in the browser URL line add the right parenthesis and hit enter. You'll get the article.

Thanks for providing a working link.
Amazing how the reasons why the St. Helena community was motivated to recall school board members are exactly what the community is saying about some PUSD school board members.
Having gone through one expensive special election, I doubt Pleasanton wants to foot the bill to recall some of the current school board members especially when there's another school board election coming up later in the year.
But perhaps it would be money well spent.
