RULE Endorses Three for Emery School Board

Emeryville's longstanding progressive resident advocacy group Residents United for a Livable Emeryville today announced their endorsement of Sarah Nguyen, Susan Donaldson and Brynnda Collins for Emery School Board in the November 6th election.

With the School Board endorsement, RULE now fills out their picks for Emeryville for the 2018 campaign season having endorsed Dianne Martinez and Scott Donahue for City Council earlier.
The three School Board candidates have also garnered the endorsement of the Democratic Party of Alameda County as well as the entire Emeryville City Council.  Ms Collins , the only incumbent of the three, is currently president of the Emery School Board having been selected by the Board in 2017 to fill in for a vacating member.
The three School Board candidates are not running as an official slate but campaign watchers have noted they appear to be collegial among themselves and have been appearing together at campaign events in town.
RULE vetted and selected the candidates in an interview process conducted at their posted meeting on Saturday.
