Support Daniel P. Leonard, Toms River, NJ BOE

Daniel P. Leonard, a Retired Career Army Combat Veteran and U.S. Paratrooper with multiple deployments and current member of the non-partisan Toms River BOE, has been the subject of a partisan witch-hunt based upon Lies & False Context perpetrated by a left wing coalition; particularly an extremist group intent on tarnishing Mr. Leonard’s sterling reputation as a military hero and selfless, unpaid civil servant and proven community leader. Please Sign this petition in support of MSG (Ret) Daniel Leonard and Free Speech. https://nj1015.com/how-one-nj-veteran-put-cair-in-their-place-opinion/?fbclid=IwAR2taPG2pXg0T9jCC26Qc_T-IYZmzU5cx7-N-wDBYt4ytLd6cupNeaLcxeU http://shorenewsnetwork.com/2019/08/03/army-veteran-toms-river-school-board-member-family-kids-receiving-death-threats-after-criticizing-rashida-tlaib/ https://nj1015.com/is-free-speech-dead-facebook-live/ https://www.amazon.com/I-R-Hamas-Government-American-Islamic-Relations/dp/1540707555 Mr. Leonard has been the target of a coordinated international campaign to disparage his integrity and fitness for his position on the school board by CAIR (Hamas) - The Council On American Islamic Relations which government organizations have tied to known terrorists.

Protect the Hooker Oak Nature Center

Chico Unified School District chose to authorize placement of an air conditioning unit on the ground right in the middle of the  Hooker Oak Elementary School Nature Center. The PTO was given no notice, and the unit is located directly adjacent to the outdoor classroom. This means that teachers will have to compete with the noise of the machine to be heard, and any natural sounds will be drowned out. It's also visually and spatially obstructive. The PTO green committee as well as so many parent volunteers, teachers, businesses, and community members have worked so hard on this special place and have spent countless hours (years, in fact) and thousands of dollars on improving it. This is more than just a setback. I sent an email and left a voicemail with the Chico USD maintenance supervisor, and I haven't received a response. I'm imploring Chico USD to do better. We can still move this unit away from the middle of the area and have a functioning air conditioning system. Chico USD, please don't ruin this opportunity for these kids. It's been such a difficult year; the Camp Fire threw everything into disarray, and the kids, the teachers, the parents - and anyone else who needs to take a moment for a breath, really - deserve a place that provides them even a little bit of respite, right there in their own school. The district should consider that the decisions they make have real impacts on the people whose lives are intertwined daily with these schools, intended or otherwise. When we know better, we do better. #dobetter
