In a few minutes, I have to run to the WCCUSD School Board meeting despite my looming cold. The new Board members, Tony Thurmond and Antonio Medrano, will be sworn in and then have to turn around and vote on school closure criteria and the CEQA report for Castro. This should be an early opportunity to see what they’re made of. I voted for both of them, but it’s always a gamble — these election things. I’ll expand on this later after I’ve cheated and developed a little more hindsight from tonight. (They may have already been brainwashed by the California School Boards Association‘s Annual “Conference.”)
