SFWPC PAC Committee feels strongly that recalls should be used only when absolutely necessary and when an elected representative has egregiously committed a dereliction of duty. Any recommendation by SFWPC goes beyond moderate and progressive politics. The San Francisco Unified School District has been experiencing serious issues for a long time and the pandemic exacerbated many of those problems. San Francisco children deserve a committed school board that will fight for them and be focused on solving the most pressing issues facing the district. These recommendations are made weighing the best interests of the students enrolled in the San Francisco Unified School District and SFWPC’s values.
Alison Collins – PAC recommends a YES vote on the recall of Alison Collins
The PAC Committee feels strongly that Alison Collins surpassed the threshold to warrant a recall, specifically when she brought a retaliatory lawsuit against her colleagues and the district for millions of dollars during a time of extreme budget deficit in response to a board action on derogatory comments that she made publicly. As Vice-President of the School Board, her actions demonstrated a dereliction of her duties and little respect for her colleagues, constituents and district staff rising to a level that warrants removal from office.
Gabriela López – PAC has a recommendation of NO POSITION/NO ENDORSEMENT on recalling Gabriela López
While Gabriela López chose not to participate in our endorsement process, the PAC Committee did not come to a consensus on if Gabriela López met the threshold to warrant a recall.
Faauuga Moliga – PAC recommends a NO vote on the recall of Faauuga Moliga
There are many long-standing issues facing the school district, many of which have been exacerbated by the on-going pandemic. The committee feels strongly that Faauuga Moliga’s actions on the School Board do not rise to the threshold to warrant a recall. He has been a dedicated advocate for young people,specifically young girls. We believe he should remain in office to continue to fulfill his term on the board.
