Be aware that four candidates are running for two seats on the five-member board of the Hayward Area Rec & Park District (HARD). Would be helpful to the electorate if all these folks took a public stance on animal welfare issues, esp. the Rowell Ranch Rodeo and its long history of animal abuse.

Relatedly, here's the link to a new, prize-winning rodeo documentary short, "BUCKING TRADITION" - Web Link

California State Education Code 60042 mandates that "humane education and kindness to animals" be taught in the public schools, K-12. Ironically, EVERY animal welfare organization in North America condemns rodeo due to its inherent cruelty. Lest we forget, this godawful pandemic was HUMAN-caused, a direct result of our callous mistreatment of animals, both wild and domestic. There are connections to be made here, folks.
