California Politics: Campaign News in Brief : Some Sour Notes for the Governor

October 23, 1986

It wasn't, Peter Kelly said, as if the governor didn't know better:

Kelly, Southern California chairman of the Democratic Party, said he was "outraged" at Gov. George Deukmejian's use of public high school cheerleaders and bands at his campaign rallies.

He was joined in a Los Angeles press conference by former Sacramento High School band member Shelley Darrow, who filed a federal suit two years ago when she said she was threatened with a lowered grade if she refused to join the band in playing at one of President Reagan's reelection rallies.

The judge in that case issued a restraining order, prohibiting the California chairman of the Reagan-Bush '84 campaign from using public high school bands at political rallies.

And the campaign chairman's name, Kelly said, was George Deukmejian.
