74.
Dear Editor,

As a proud member of the California School Employee’s Association and vice president of the Gilroy Chapter, I will be joining Michelle Nelson in voting NO in November on Proposition 74.

I will also be voting NO on Proposition 75, which was written to silence my voice as a public school employee. As a school bus driver, I am one on the 240 CSEA members who are your GUSD classified employees.

We are NOT special interests; we are the men and women who, every day, keep classrooms clean, handle the operations of schoolbuildings, keep playgrounds safe, prepare food and get your children to and from school. We are the first ones your children see in the morning and the last ones to bid them farewell.

Proposition 75 is unnecessary and unfair. It is meant to weaken our union and the voice of its members while strengthening the political influence of big corporations.

It places no restrictions on corporations that make political contributions without the permission of their shareholders. Proposition 75 is designed to reduce our union’s ability to act when politicians would harm education, health care and public safety. Please join me in voting NO on Proposition 75

Rebecca Scheel, Gilroy Chapter 69, CSEA
