BACPAC Endorses Maher, Yee and Wang for School Board
The Pleasanton Chamber of Commerce's Business and Community Political Action Committee (BACPAC) is pleased to announce its endorsements for the Pleasanton Unified School District Board of Trustees in the November 2020 election.
Upon careful review of the five candidates running for three open seats, we believe Steve Maher, Jamie Yee and Chong Wang are the best candidates to lead the school district through the many challenges that lay ahead.
Steve Maher and Jamie Yee bring years of experience and already have a strong and positive relationship with Superintendent David Haglund. This experience and relationship will be critical for success as the school board considers difficult decisions with bringing students back to the classroom and budget constraints.
The remaining three candidates were all well versed in the challenges facing the school district. We believe Chong Wang rose to the top primarily due to his experience serving on the Superintendent's Budget Advisory Council and Citizen Bond Oversight Committee. His many years of work in the technology industry will also bring valuable insight to the district as they consider new technologies to connect with students, teachers and the community.

BACPAC Endorses Candidates for Mayor and City Council
The Pleasanton Chamber's Business and Community Political Action Committee (BACPAC) is pleased to announce its endorsements for Pleasanton Mayor and City Council in this November's election.
Mayoral candidate Jerry Pentin and City Council candidates Jack Balch and Randy Brown bring a combination of excellent experiences, are most closely aligned with Chamber goals articulated in Pleasanton 2025: A Community Vision, and in our view are best qualified to help Pleasanton remain the Bay Area's best place to live, work and raise a family. All three have earned our endorsement.
The Chamber's political action committee, BACPAC, relies on Pleasanton 2025: A Community Vision as the barometer by which to endorse and fund candidates for elected office at all levels of government, with greatest emphasis at the local level.
While the annual BBQ Fundraiser celebrating local business has been cancelled, the election goes on. We still need your financial help to support candidates and causes aligned with the Chamber's Vision 2025 document.
This election is like no other and BACPAC wants to make a difference. We can't do it without your support, so, "Just write the check and avoid the mess!"
