Hallajula AMEN! The CVRA has a local hero in Sebastian Aguilar. If you ever looked at the faces of 'historic' FDACC trustees you would see a male Anglo sea. Mostly elected by an "in the foothills" majority. Not much room for a valley floor representative voice. (East of The Tracks).

Just as the Cupertino City official ellected elete eventially lost their (doomed) legal fight against the CVRA, so would have Foothill-De Anza.

Board President Peter Landsberger must not study the election results like I (and apparently Aguliar) do. For the last County Ed Board election, incumbent Grace Ma had a very clear election lead 'down in the valley' and in the more wealthy areas the PAUSD contender did. (not counting LAH, with few voters). I bet the CC elections have followed the same trend.

BTW - Hispanics in MV-LA High School District. This district is IMO 'ripe for the pickings' for a CVRA letter from an attorney from a civil rights group -INTERESTED IN THE FACT that there has not been one single MVLA Board member from North of El Camino in this 21st century.

Yep - the main Hispanic areas have had no elected representative (neighborhood resident) in perhaps 40 years. "A protected class member" or 6, "have legal standing" to produce this action! (it's not me man - it's your civil rights). If you are from any "protected class" under the CVRA you many join in. Ain't real democracy FUN?

Minority citizens (and residents in "communities of interest") get their civil rights protected against 'the tyrany of the majority.'

Real democracy is both Fun and Sweet!
