MDUSD parents: Do you think you’ve been inappropriately lobbied to vote a certain way in the Measure C race?

The Mayor of Claycord shares a story from a fellow Claycordian about what this parent viewed as some pretty heavy-handed pro-Measure C lobbying from her child’s elementary school principal.

The anonymous writer said she went to an orientation for her daughter to start kindergarten at an unnamed school in the Mt. Diablo Unified School District.

Claycord.com quoted the parent as saying:

“In with the kindergarten packet was one sheet of paper telling me why I needed to vote “YES” on Measure C in the upcoming election. She then went on to give us a 15-minute speech on why it was the most important vote we will make this year and how our children are depending on us to vote “YES.'”

I am accustomed to superintendents in the two school districts I live in–Walnut Creek and Acalanes Union–to send out e-mails urging us parents to vote one way or another–usually yes–on school-related parcel tax or bond measures. That seems to be par for the course. But did the administrator at this school cross some kind of line in advocating parents to vote in favor the the $348 million bond measure next Tuesday.

  1. An anonymous complainant. If this person wants to publicly make a statement, I'll listen. Otherwise, I'll take a pass.

    Anonymous complaints should be taken for what they are — suspect.

  2. An anonymous bloviator. If this person wants to publicly make a statement, I'll also listen. Otherwise, I'll take a pass as well.

    Anonymous bloviators should ALSO be taken for what they are — suspect. So shad-up.
