Space limited my questions to Sixteen, here are the balance Seventeen through Twenty-Five:

17, Are you willing to attend workshops or training to learn how to become an effective board member/effective school board?

18. How will you contribute to a successful board meeting?

19. What responsibilities do board members/the board have regarding the evaluation of the superintendent?

20. What do you believe will be expected of you as a board member?

21. How do you prevent personal interests/conflicts from influencing board decisions/policy?

22. What are the leadership responsibilities of school board members?

23. What are the current challenges facing PUSD Pleasanton School District?

24. What is the most important responsibility of a school board?

25. What is the public relations role of a school board?

All four candidates for PUSD board received my questions last week. Three of them responded, two of them with strong positive responses.

When I sent my Twenty-Five questions to the four declared candidates for the PUSD board, they were the only four that announced intentions to run for the PUSD board.

Steve Maher responded that my questions were all "excellent questions that should be answered by all candidates and the board". He suggested a candidate forum for all of the candidates to answer the Twenty-Five questions, that he of course will participate in a forum.

Chong Wang responded that my questions "are very helpful" that he is gathering information and learning from my questions.

Kelly Mokashi acknowledge receiving my questions. She did not provide an answer to any of my questions.

Jaime Hentzke Yee did not acknowledge my questions, she simply ignored me and my uestions.
