Wish it was our Catharine Baker speaking, instead the Orinda rep. Any chance of her returning to our local or state government, in the future, anyone know?

inaugural? I thought they did this every year. Or at least they have. I remember going to one at Castlewood and one at the Hilton. I guess the changed the name so is new.

When you are trying to sell a $323MM bond just 3 years after a $270MM bond, whose major projects haven’t even begun, you dust off an old format and try to pump new energy into it. Anyone know who is heading the bond campaign for the district, because they are not legally allowed to campaign themselves.

I hope ppie is supporting the schools as it has, and I hope at this event they are looking at the district leaders and saying, WTF are you doing to stabilize education so our contributions are enhancing the experience, not acting as a foundational pillar to support basic functionality.
