Do the people who have initiated the recall campaign against four of the members of our school board realize what they have done to their children and mine? The costs for the recall will not be paid by the county or state as some are saying. The cost, a minimum of $100,000, must be paid by our school district. This means that money that should go to all the children of Torrance might now have to pay for a recall election.
If the recall succeeds, another $100,000 or more must be spent for a new election. There is precious little money already for education. The $100,000 could be used to hire three teachers or paint a school or put a counselor in every middle school in Torrance. These people are trying to take away approximately $525 per child per $100,000 (based on an enrollment of 19,000 students) for their own selfish whims.
