At the April LJDC meeting club members heard from and
endorsed Kevin Beiser for reelection to the San Diego United
School District Board.
This vote followed a vote to suspend the rules
requiring a 30-day notice. It was deemed important to allow Beiser to get out in
front on his campaigning.
Those present were privileged to hear him report
stunning accomplishments of his first term, including retaining music education in
the elementary schools, the establishment of organic gardens in each of the
elementary schools, an expansion of the use of locally grown organic food in the
school cafeterias, moving from diesel to biofuel for buses, expansion of the use of
solar power (with further reduction in electric bill), the banning of styrofoam
containers in the schools (resulting in a considerable financial savings).
reported on excellent test scores (with San Diego rating first in the state in science
and math). Kevin was named Legislator of the Year by the California Music

Have you ever been tongue-tied when you
tried to illustrate the point that, despite the
uphill climb, Obama HAS made a lot of
accomplishments which please Democrats?
Professor Robert P. Watson at Lynn University
made a list of 250 of those accomplishments.
(It takes up about 22 pages!) And that was
only until 2010!
Christine Forester alerted us to this list. Take
