Mayor London Breed supports the recall of three San Francisco school board members.
Breed is endorsing the recall of board President Gabriela López, board Vice President Faauuga Moliga and board member Alison Collins because, “Our kids must come first.” saying she is supporting “the parents’ call for change.”
“Sadly, our school board’s priorities have often been severely misplaced,” Breed said in a statement. “During such a difficult time, the decisions we make for our children will have long term impacts. Which is why it is so important to have leadership that will tackle these challenges head on, and not get distracted by unnecessary influences or political agendas.”
“I have made it clear from the beginning of the pandemic, we need to focus on educating our students, supporting our workforce, and reopening our City,” said Mayor Breed. “During this critical time, we need to ensure that the cost of the school board recall does not fall on the backs of our children, which is why we are stepping in to make sure that this funding goes directly to our students.”
“Whether you agree or disagree with school board recall, we should all agree that our students shouldn’t bear the financial burden of the election. This supplemental will ensure that the Department of Elections is fully funded to do its important work without harming SFUSD students, families, and workers,” said Supervisor Mandelman.
