    Tom Berryhill speaking at a School Board meeting? Let's look at his voting record as it would pertain to children, safety, health, education...
    He voted NAY to all the following bills:
    SB 81 Funding for school transportation
    SB 1413 Free drinking water in school cafeterias
    SB 374 Prohibits semi-automatic rifles and detachable magazines
    SB 1525 Establish a student athlete a bill of rights
    SB 970 College vote by mail drop off locations
    SB 375 Amends teacher dismissal requirements
    SB 499 Authorizes minors to seek medical care for STD's
    SB 165 Prohibits schools from charging fees for educ. Activities
    AB 1319 Prohibits use of BPA in baby products
    AB 101 Allows child care providers to organize
    SB 299 Pregnancy or childbirth leave for employees
    SB 222 Individual health care coverage for maternity services
    SB 1301 Extend student financial aid eligibility
    SB 48 Prohibits large capacity magazines and lg capacity conversion kits
    SB 3025 Regulates polystyrene packaging
    SB 552 Authorizes a violence awareness component of school curriculum
    SB 1108 Probibits carcinogens in children's products
    SB 1713 Bisphenol A ban
    SB 2132 State universities should include public service in tenure policy
    SB 1420 Nutritional information disclosure for chain restaurants
    SB 2109 Requires parents to obtain a waiver for unvaccinated children
    SB 70 Educational budget amendment
    SB 10 Increase the minimum wage
    SB 399 Authorizes youth offenders to appeal a life sentence w/o parole

    That's right...voted NO on all above.
    In addition, his website photo with his face on a Yosemite backdrop seems very ironic and hypocritical seeing as he received a 23% rating from the Sierra Club, founded by John Muir, who is called the "Father of the National Parks" and pushed to protect Yosemite and create national parks. Berryhill is rated 29% by the League of Conservation voters.
    Additionally Berryhill voted against:
    SB 1478 Appropriates funds for state parks for 2 years
    SB 4 Prohibits smoking at state park beaches

    Anyone who can attend? Please ask about any of these that interest you!
    Or read more for many more votes that may be on issues you care about.

      If the sierra club doesn't like him, he might be ok.

        Really? Look at how he voted, you think all of that is OK?

      Berryhill is terrible and his votes are all pro-big business, which is not is predominant constituency. But to get him out the Democrats have to put up a viable (i.e., not too liberal) alternative and make sure he/she has the funding to get the message out. Who can even remember who Berryhill ran against?

Cheyenne Room? Cheyenne Indian tribes are not in California. How about the Mi-wuk Room? Or Bear Clover Room? Something more original and native to our area. How dumb can you be???
