All five candidates for GUSD school board visited The Lanterman House in La Cañada last Sunday, at the invitation of the local Democratic Club. Each one shared their position on the proposed territory transfer. Most candidates expressed a desire for a permanent resolution and to end the decades and divisive conflict over school district boundaries, which segregate the western part of LCF from the rest of their LCF schools. Only one candidate opposed the transfer. Some expressed a preference for “open enrollment” but that is not a permanent solution. We encourage our supporters to continue to outreach to these candidates during the campaign season.
The election is April 7th, 2015. All registered voters in western LCF should be receiving their ballots in mid-March. Voting for Sagebrush residents will be in the lobby of Hall and Chambers Realtors, just a few doors east of Ocean View at 2315 Foothill Blvd.
Note: The two districts met this week to discuss a settlement deal both districts can afford and implement in a fair and reasonable manner. No news yet on the outcome of their discussions.
