They are short-sighted.
Instead of rallying behind David Hadley, who has accomplished more in one term as a freshman in the minority party, they have caved to the "safer" bet, Al Muratsuchi.
Oh, sure, they worked with Al when he was a Torrance School Board member.
But as soon as he went to the state assembly, he went Sacramento.
The LCFF (Local Control Funding Formula) actually hurt South Bay schools. If 55% of the student body is on reduced lunch, then the district would get more funding.
Torrance schools, along with other high scoring districts in the South Bay, are getting less money from the state.
What gives? When did it become a crime to excel?
Hermosa Beach City School District gets the least funding of any district in the entire state!
And Al Muratsuchi signed on for the unfair LCFF.
Let's just cut through all the noise and nonsense.
Michael Wermers is a confirmed leftist. He can play the "Decline to State" card all he wants: "I am fiscally conservative and socially liberal." Blah Blah Blah.
Wermers' one ambitions is secularism and liberalism.
He actually calls Bad Apple Al an "independent leader"? Muratsuchi does whatever the big, bad labor unions tell him to. He got jerked and pulled around by power plays in Sacramento all the time.
Who knew that Torrance schools were in the hands of such confirmed liberal lunacy? The Torrance School Board, committed to doing the will of the teachers unions, and not one good thing for the students or the parents.
How about this trick? The latest Muratsuchi flyer mentions Julie Shankle as "Torrance teacher"?
President of the Torrance Teachers Association
The Police Officers endorsement mentions the union. Why not the teachers union, too?
Who got a school choice bill passed in the state legislature? David Hadley.
Who got the law passed to make it easier to get rid of pervert teachers? David Hadley.
Who has worked to ensure that students, parents, and teachers enjoy the best uality education environment? David Hadley.
And yet who are the Torrance School Board members endorsing for state assembly?
"Bad Apple" Al.
What else motivates such slovenly, heedless pandering other than a sense of arrogance and entitlement?
