Re: “In Oakland Hills Race, A Battle of Ideologies

As a D4 property owner and a proud parent of a student in our only public middle school, I am aghast that Jill Broadhurst seeks to represent our district when, by her own actions, has done us harm. Specifically, she is part of a large group of mostly white upper middle class families from the Hills schools and Crocker that, rather than fight to make the local middle schools better, decided to start there own charter school, taking many families of similar demographics with them. Their actions have resulted in declining enrollment at Montera (the D4 middle school), and have diminished the pot of fundraising money that goes to ensure that all students have extra resources that the OUSD can't provide. If she wants to lead our district, perhaps she should have started by fighting to improve the middle school (whose population is much more reflective of Oakland), rather than harm it by zapping its resources and bolting. We all know that property values are increased with good schools. Jill Broadhurt's has done nothing to help with that
.
Having attended a recent candidate forum, I was very impressed with Campbell Washington's grasp of the issues and plans to make changes. Broadhurst seemed to me to be a closet republican explaining that she does not favor raising taxes, which is why she is not in favor of the ballot measures that would have that result. If you care about someone that represents all of D4, and not just the hills, vote for Campbell Washington. Broadhurst presented an "us against them" platform, beliefs carried out by her support of the charter school that has had detrimental impacts on the district she seeks to support.
