Yes on Measure E Committee in Debt?

Original post made by Start Afresh, Country Fair, on May 20, 2011

Word on the street is the Yes on Measure E Committee is several thousand dollars in debt. And is passing around the proverbial tin cup (along with Uncle Vito) to collect more funds to pay off the debt.

Just give it a rest, already! The vote came out the way you wanted it to, so there's really no need to keep beating a dead horse.

There may remain a few bills unpaid, but I'm sure the campaign will be responsible and will find the last few dollars to settle up with those who provided services to the campaign.

To 'give it up already' - You seem to think it was all about the vote. Measure E people seem to think it was all about getting supporters to mail their ballots (and badgering those who hadn't voted yet after going to the county ROV and getting the lists of those who had voted). PUSD seems to think it was all about marketing using glossy mailers, and polls, and consultants. And the unions? Well, they think it was all about protecting their paycheck.
As long as you and all those groups think that way, it is the kids who are getting hurt.
I agree with 'Start Afresh' and want to know why PUSD had to layoff 6 teachers in order to pay for Measure E.
