  1. I am my children's Mom says

    Buchanan must be out of her mind to jeopardize $700 Million in Federal Race to the Top funding. So she abstains. What a snake.

    Luckily the Governor passed the legislation despite the hold the Teachers union has on sock puppet Joan.

    I truly hope she chokes on those pancakes

  2. Julie in San Ramon says

    How can Joan tell people what she has done to help better our schools when she abstained from SB X5 that would have

    1) allowed students in low-performing schools to “open enroll” in higher performing schools; and,

    2) allow parents to petition to require school boards to implement an aggressive turnaround strategy for a failing school.

    Parents need both reforms to put real pressure on underperforming schools and give students real options for a better education.

    Thankfully this passed

    But in failing to call her handlers in the CTA to account and reform, Joan failed again to stand up for her district hoping no one would notice. If only she would represent parents in her district instead of the Teachers Union.

    So beware of the syrupy lies she’ll pour on those pancakes!

    And you know what’s worse? Torlakson voted against these reforms and he wants to be chief of education in California!

    How sick is that?

  3. CCR says

    It’s not free. The flyer and breakfast were paid for by the state meaning us taxpayers.
    There’s no free lunch or breakfast either!

  4. Richard S. Colman says

    Big spender, Assembly-woman Joan Buchanan , voted in 2009 to raise the California sales tax. In Contra Costa County, the local sales tax went from 8,25% to 9.25%. This means that a $40,000 car now costs $400 more just in sales tax. Why did Buchanan vote for this sales tax hike?
