As noted here, Mr. Pandell has been rejected from this job twice already. Once by election in 2014 and again when he tried for an appointment. He doesn't seem to acknowledge here that he lost (twice) then and it would seem nothing has changed in is platform over the past eight years to be a better candidate now. A broken clock is still right twice a day and Mr. Pandell seems to be desperately looking for his time to finally come.

Scott Hale - I'm just posting facts. You should worry less about me and more about Mr. Pandell. One example is Mr. Pandell advocated high schools be turned into vaccination sites and that parental approval should be removed for vaccinations. You can take that however you like but it is a fact that this was a position of his that is controversial.

Sounds like Jerome has a plan and ideas on how to work towards implementing it to enhance and build off things- not just a vision for his platform. Anyone can have bullet points of what they stand for, but tell us how you are going to act on it with a district wide lens while speaking with all stakeholders- even those that don't agree with you. Looking forward to hearing more.

JesseT - While Mr. Pandell has a plan, it's the same plan he had when he was rejected from this job twice since 2014. If his plans haven't changed, why would he expect voters to do anything but reject him for a third time?

Hey, H- I'm concerned with the hear and now. Talking about and living in the past isn't real productive, but you do you! It's your vote, H.

JesseT - If someone wasn't good enough twice what would make them good enough now? I don't understand supporting losers.

H,
LBJ, Richard Nixon, Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton, Ronald Reagan, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama lost elections, but used the lessons to score future victories. Sounds like this person is in good company! It's easy to be negative, takes little effort to cast names and insults on someone, it takes work to do something and be a productive member of our community-- which, seat or not, sounds like this guy has been for years.

JesseT - First, your comparison is absurd. Second, they all CHANGED when they lost. Third, none of anyone you mentioned was ever also denied appointment. Mr. Pandell has lost this position in every conceivable way and obstinately refused to adjust anything - heck, even is website is 100% the same just with 2022 replacing 2014! The guy is a loser. His opponent Ms. Pettersen at least has the support of people in the actual schools!

H,
Not sure how much more support of people in the actual schools you can get when you have San Ramon Valley teachers big announcement yesterday stating they are endorsing Jerome. Michele is a great PTA leader. Two good candidates for sure.

JesseT - Pandell's Political Pandering is apparent. Not sure why teachers would back [removed] Pandell when Ms. Pettersen has actually done the work that Pandell Pretends.
