Proponents’ Statement of Reasons for the Recall and the Board of Education Member’s Answer — Alison Collins
Proponents’ Statement of Reasons
TO THE HONORABLE ALISON COLLINS: Pursuant to Section 11020 of the California Elections Code and Section 14.103 of the San Francisco Charter, the undersigned registered qualified voters of the City and County of San Francisco, California, hereby give notice that we are the proponents of a recall petition and that we intend to seek your recall and removal from the office of Member of the San Francisco Unified School District Board of Education, and to request that the Mayor fill the resulting vacancy and nominate the successor to this office.
The grounds for the recall are as follows: She has been a negligent, ineffective Board of Education Member, who failed to do her job, which is to prioritize our children's education; has mismanaged the District's finances, including not following the Brown Act and other laws, which invites lawsuits that are a waste of money and resources; has failed to prioritize or develop plans for school re-opening; has not provided adequate opportunities for parents and community members to share their concerns on issues including school renaming, school re-opening, and Lowell admissions changes; has failed students with special needs; and has made it more difficult for students from under-privileged backgrounds to obtain a good education, further widening the inequality that exists in our society.
The names of the proponents are as follows: Autumn Looijen, Lily Ho, Maria L. Delao, Stephen Lemmer, Laurance Lee, Kristi Kennedy, Paulina Fayer, James Riseman, Lora Libby, Suzanne Kirkham, Sandra Ospina, Laura Hossain, Michael J. Bertinetti, Sam Singer, Angela Rosoff, Kellee Santiago, Gregory Arenius, Jessica Gaynor, Jeffrey M. Gaynor, Farshad Alamsamimi, Ronan Lyall, Michelle Hughes, Nadim Hossain, Tom House, Justin Hughes, Cristina Rivera, Jessica Wallack-Cohen, Stephen Lewis, Michael Stein, and Jon Chu.
