President Kehoe called the meeting to order at 7:02.

Present: Kehoe, Dye, Fisher, Fried, Gerrity, Slater-Carter.

Open Comments

  • Fisher: All board members need to have a presentation on the difference between goals, policies, and procedures.
  • Gerrity: Marshall Tuck will be running for State School Superintendent and speaking at Brews and Views. He is very Republican and wants to privatize schools.
  • Slater-Carter: Update on lawsuit by HMB against SAM. HMB says it does not consider SAM a defendant so will not support funding for a defense. HMB is playing very hardball. This limits the willingness of those sued to settle. HMB asked for a change of venue and it has been moved to Santa Clara. This has delayed the process. People should watch the SAM meetings.
