Position Papers
My thoughts on our new Middle School construction
What follows is an opinion column I wrote in March of this year for the Half Moon Bay Review.

As you probably know, a $35 million dollar school construction bond was passed by the voters on the coastside in 1996. The purpose of the bond was to build a new middle school and repair our other schools.

The repairs were completed, but construction of our new middle school has been subject to a series of delays. I wrote this column to suggest a solution.

Convert old Cunha into a new elementary school ...
This is a second opinion column for the Review I wrote in April of this year dealing with the future use of the old middle school.
Properly funding our schools, enrollment, and the future of Cunha
I believe that the wise use of our construction bond money is one of the keys to solving our school district funding problem. We also need to address the REAL student enrollment picture, and the future of Cunha.
