TODAY: Vanguard – Davis Media Access Host School Board Candidates Forum



The Davis Vanguard and Davis Media Access (DMA) will co-host a candidates forum for Davis Joint Unified School Board at Harper Junior High Multipurpose room TODAY. The doors open at 6:30 PM and the forum begins at 7:00 PM. The forum will have a unique set-up in that candidates will be seated facing each other in a discussion format. Each of the five candidates will ask one question to be answered by themselves and the other candidates, and then there will be time at the end for question and answer of the candidates.

In advance of the event the Vanguard sent out written questions to the candidates, which were published last week on the Vanguard (Part One, Part Two).

“We say this every year, and perhaps it is the truth, but this is a crucial election for education in Davis – not only do we have five candidates with a broad range of ideas on how to improve our education system in the wake of consistent and persistent budget crises, but we also have a parcel tax measure on the ballot which means the voters will decide how much in the way of resources the members get to work with,” said David Greenwald, Executive Director of The Davis Vanguard.

    Some of those were used for the written questions that will be posted Monday or Tuesday. The forum itself will feature the candidates asking their own questions of each other.

    Granda’s campaign literature is particularly heavy and glowing about all the things that he supports in the public schools, and yet he opposes Measure E, whose failure of passage would potentially lead to especially heavy cuts to the district.

    I suggest asking him to spell out how he would support all the things that he promises and still balance the budget. Because he appears to be either contradicting or over-selling himself.

    cont’d: What Granda suggests is that he can balance the budget by cutting administrative salaries. He doesn’t support cutting teachers’ salaries. I don’t see how his math works. You can’t cut admin. salaries enough to avoid deep cuts.
