Emily Atwood is a registered user.
I just spoke with Myla Grasso, public information officer for the district, who said that is his family vacation home, not his primary residence. He is there recovering from hip surgery. As mentioned in a previous discussion, Pat Kernan confirmed this information to me, as well as my editor Jeb Bing.

The Pleasanton Unified School District is now on record as participating in this cover up.
When Pat Kernan sold their family home in Pleasanton they purchased the home in Camino, Ca. that was in 1996.
The California Attorney General states, " Domicile means, a place of physical presence coupled with the intention to make that place one's permanent home; a person may have only one domicile at a given time."
The address of the apartment that he claims to use is not where he intends to make his permanent home. I would be interested in seeing if he claims his Camino home as his primary residence on his tax return.
The California Attorney General also states that, "Both the public and the district have an interest in the integrity of public office and in the qualifications of their officials."
Integrity is one of the Community of Character traits. PUSD and the Board need to examine this closely.
Pat Kernan needs to resign his position on the Pleasanton school board or his fellow board members need to ask for his resignation.
