I am pleased to hear Camille will be running. Since we are losing Barbara at least we will have Camille sticking it out to finish her work particularly on the budget.
I think she and Melissa should be applaudde for running again
With all that is going on in our district. Thanks Camille for being so dedicated.

I would like to thank all our present board members for doing what is a thankless task which many of us would be unwilling or unable to commit our energies as well as they have done.
I agree with the criticisms of Camille being long winded and did not agree with her stand on the MI issue, but nonetheless I have found her a dedicated board member and very personable to talk to.
But, I think we need some new faces on our school board. The last election was a non event due to no new candidates. This time we have one fresh face in Heidi, but I do not think she should be an automatic replacement.
In the not too distant past we have had some excellent candidates who narrowly missed succeeding. I am thinking particularly of Wayne Martin and Claude Ezran who have both been very visible in Palo Alto issues since losing. I would love to see either of them or others also enter the race. I would also like to get down to candidates discussing the issues which are presently hot topics in PAUSD, namely calendar, curriculum, counseling, enrollment and Cubberley/new schools.

She is simply too controversial.
