Recall Threshold Met for One Board Member, Total Count Hits 1,000

It’s official: The 25% recall threshold has been passed for one Board member, with three weeks still to go. Signatures for at least two other Board members are incredibly close to 25%, and more than 1,000 signatures have been collected District-wide. It is clearer than ever that this recall campaign is absolutely winnable if we keep up the hard work, but it’s getting down to crunch time!

How do we know this is so doable? Because of the many schools that have turned in their petitions, at least eight schools got more than two-thirds of their members to sign. Remember, our total target is only 25%. The Garfield High School site team is proud to announce that more than 90% of our members have signed. If we can do it, you can do it too! But also remember, every little bit counts! So don’t feel that if you can only get a few signatures at your school that those signatures don’t matter. They absolutely do!

The Breakfast Club is having three meetings this week for signature drop-off and networking. We need your signatures back ASAP so we know where to focus the rest of our energy, and we need all of you to help figure out who you know at the schools we’re missing. Please join us at one of these meetings:

  • Monday, Oct. 22nd at 3 pm to 4pm (that’s TOMORROW)
  • Wednesday, Oct. 24th at 4:30 pm  to 5:30
  • Saturday, Oct. 27th at 9 am to 10am
  • All meetings will be at the Mission Valley IHOP (2169 Fenton Parkway #108)

These signatures are being collected by busy and dedicated teachers just like us, and every single one of us can do it too. Some of us are having a harder time getting signatures than others, feeling that our members are scared or apathetic. Click HERE for some points to raise if members say they’re afraid to sign. Strategies, like collecting at a union meeting and then going door-to-door to get the rest, seem to work best. If you would like some support, respond to this email and ask for a Breakfast Club organizer to come out to your school. We’re happy to help.
