The AASD Board of Directors voted on September 18 to make changes to the AASD Bylaws thereby allowing the creation of a new AASD Political Action Committee (PAC). This change comes hand-in-hand with AASD’s new affiliation with the American Federation of School Administrators and becoming affiliated with the local Labor Council AFL-CIO. The PAC interviewed candidates and made recommendations for endorsements to the AASD Board of Directors. These are not financial endorsements. The AASD Board of Directors has endorsed Richard Barrera (District D), Sharon Whitehurst Payne (District E) and Stephen Groce (District A). The PAC Co-Chairs are Erica Renfree (certificated co-chair) and Marci Lammey (classified co-chair). Members of the PAC are: Jesus Montana, Scott Thomason, Jeff Thomas, Juan Romo, Cristine Holmer and Peter Johnson.
