Harlandale United PAC aims to strike back.
Roy Aguillon started the campaign
The Harlandale Independent School District in San Antonio, Texas saw the departure of widely respected Superintendent Robert Jaklich in the Summer of 2012. The Superintendent left due to pressure and criticism mounted by a school board member who was intent on seeing a Latino Superintendent for a Latino heavy district. That member created a new majority that took charge and created such a hostile work environment for the Superintendent he departed. When word of his forced hand made it to the community a grassroots campaign to encourage the Superintendent to stay was mounted.  But still that was not enough to overcome the hate leveled by the new majority. Even the politically cautious Mayor of San Antonio Julian Castro was so outraged he made an unprecedented appearance at the Superintendents final meeting to urge him to stay and warn the school board that their actions would not go unnoticed. As a community we have rallied together and created the Harlandale United Political Action Committee to target board members who worked against the former Superintendent and support candidates who promise to make decisions in the best interest of the students and not based on race. We need crowd funding help to pay for our campaign which is led by 3 former Obama 2012 campaign staffers and guided by a metrics model that produces real results. After taking data from former elections and layering them we have built projections for the upcoming election and determined a win number needed and a plan based heavily on field work to lead us to victory. Below are some links about the district, the former Superintendent, and the scandal that moved us to action.
