What a great program! A win-win situation for both businesses that want to make their community moreRead More academically rich and the schools which can use the help of sponsors and build a bridge with the local businesses! I know that my clinic is looking forward to partnering with this program!

So glad she's gone, why would we continue to pay her when she's the one that walked away. I tellRead More you too many perks for those in charge while our schools suffer.

Lived here over twenty years. Saw our population grow from 59,000 to what it is today, aroundRead More 70,000. One of the selling points to move here was the district's education system. We had multiple "Distinguished Schools" . Families were happy and so were the teachers/employees of the district. Now it isn't so. Teachers are getting fired, positions eliminated and of course, furlough days. Yes, the budget has something to do with it, but how can you allow someone to have a golden parachute"

I have a friend who would walk their child into school every day...her kid would leave as soon asRead More her mom left...I feel it's not fair to make people pay when their kids miss school...Both parents have to work to pay the bills and they can't stay at school all day to make sure their kids can't leave...What are we to do make school a jail??? Stop punishing parents for something they can't control...

John is absolutely correct. We already pay property taxes that go directly to the NHUSD through theRead More Alameda County tax collector. I am dead set against any parcel tax, which is a flat dollar amount without regard to size or value of the property. If additional taxes are needed and justified (which is debatable) then it should be as a PERCENTAGE of the assessed value and NOT a regressive, flat amount which disproportionately impacts lower income people in lower valued properties.

So they awaken the Sleeping Dog. NO MORE TAXES!

NO, how much more plainly can that be said? We've gone above and beyond in our community. taxesRead More are for people who can't live within a budget. If we make it easier to pass, they will have bonds and taxes for everything. Forget it and learn to live within the budget and stop giving lifetime medical to Superintendents who only serve 5 years. You are not good stewards with our money and we don't trust you with more.
