Candidate lays out platform

I ask you to vote for me, Tony Dolz, so that I can represent you on the school board. Here is how I will improve our public schools:

Reduce education spending cuts. I support using the $3.8 million from the land sale to balance the general fund and prevent more cuts rather than building a new high school. I support giving the public the right to vote on a school bond for a new high school in 2014. I will oppose the …

Thank you, Tony Dolz, for caring about the children and curriculum in our local schools. “The Kite Runner” should not be reading material for the public school system.

It is the parents’ responsibility to give their children a moral compass by which to run their lives. How can they turn over this most important life lesson to strangers?

Mr. Dolz—you have my vote because you understand how precious our children are and how quickly their young years go.

All through school they should learn …

We have a problem in the Conejo Valley Unified School District. If Gov. Jerry Brown’s tax increases pass in November, Superintendent Baarstad is going to ask the school board to approve spending $3.5 million from the sale of district land to help build a new high school.

So what is the problem? That $3.5 million could instead better be used to prevent more education spending cuts. Even if the tax increases pass, the district still expects to have to cut the …

Don’t destroy innocence

Thank you for publishing Tony Dolz’s letter (Acorn, June 14) on “The Kite Runner.”

As a former employee at the U.S. Attorney’s Office in the Southern District of New York, I know how important it is to stop the corruption and manipulation of children by those who would destroy the child’s innocence.

Tony’s letter should be one of many. Thank you for publishing it.

Our schoolchildren’s “recommended books” list includes a book depicting homosexuality, pedophilia and a graphic scene of penetration.

The book, “The Kite Runner,” was deemed of important educational value by the Conejo Valley Unified school board, with a single opposing member.

With friends like these on the school board our children don’t need enemies, and they are safer in the hands of hallway bullies.

Choosing “Kite Runner” as a recommended book by the CVUSD is wrong on two counts: 1. The decision is …
