Dave, Marlene Murphy: Choice is clear, it’s Soiseth

Re “Brem's experience makes him best choice” (Letters, Oct. 14): We have to agree with one sentence from the demeaning letter written by a member of Mike Brem’s steering committee: “Rarely has there been such a clear-cut choice.” Contrary to what the writer tried to convey in his patronizing letter, that candidate is Gary Soiseth.


Llewellyn Boyle: Tuck’s plans won’t work; vote for Torlakson

Marshall Tuck, candidate for California superintendent of Schools, has run an ad campaign that, while emotionally appealing, omits an important truth: his business model. Tuck’s corporate-funded campaign supports private, for-profit charter schools that are not accountable to local voters. He favors high-stakes testing, union-busting and the general privatization of what should be a public enterprise. It’s no wonder that eight of 10 teachers in Tuck’s Los Angeles area charter schools gave Tuck a resounding vote of “no confidence.”
