Your sincere and thoughtful approach to do your part to help the PUSD situation is admirable.
Fear of losing teachers, a band program and the band teacher can certainly motivate a student to get involved. Responsibility, Honesty and Integrity are three of Pleasanton's Community of Character traits. I recommend you ask your principal directly about the status of next year's band program and teacher. Rather than relying on fear, or spreading fear through the community, get your questions answered directly and honestly from those responsible for the decisions.
You and your friends will be pleasantly surprised at what you find out regarding the continued existence of the band program and its excellent teacher.
I encourage you to keep asking questions and get to the real facts about what caused the Pleasanton Unified School District to ask the voters for more money. Don't rely on other people's fear, be strong, and keep searching for the truth. Use this website (PleasantonParcelTaxInfo.com Web Link more information. Don't take either side's position as truth, but ask questions and determine the truth for yourself.
I'm glad you represent our community's future. Keep up the good work and best of luck in high school.

Thats cute, but its just another EMOTIONAL PLEA by the supporters of Measure G resurrected from three weeks ago because they cannot deny the facts against the tax...vote rationally not emotionally and get the facts. There seems to be more Web information on this city issue than there is on the state measures on the May ballot, so get informed and don't let yourself be swayed by emotion.

Since this was posted today by the PW Editor from an original post on Apr.3, I think we can assume (or at least I do) that the PW sees the facts against Meas.-G are substantial and probably overwhelming. Since we know that they are for the tax, it is not surprising that they would help "spread the syrup". Address and rebut the facts.
