Pennsylvania entrepreneur Paul Martino donated $60,000 to high school board candidates operating in his native faculty district elections final November. He funded candidates who promised to return schools to classroom instruction.
The Pennsylvania State Training Affiliation noticed this as a direct risk and funneled no less than $40,000 to again their most well-liked candidates in Martino’s residence faculty district, Central Bucks.
Within the native district, these union-funded, Democratic candidates raised $122,000, in comparison with the $95,000 raised by the outsider-candidates, and partially funded by Martino.
Two of these union-backed candidates – Mariam Mahmud and Tabitha Dell’Angleo – gained. Now Martino has rightly requested these two board members to recuse themselves from the upcoming contract negotiations with… the lecturers’ union.
The instructor’s union contract expires on June 30 and Martino argues that these candidates are conflicted.
