Rumor mongering

Filed under: Alameda — Lauren Do @ 12:42 am

Just in case anyone decided that they might take a chance and cast a vote for Leland Traiman for the School Board I wanted to share one piece of recent correspondence from Leland Traiman to the Superintendent.

Granted the email itself is not written by Leland Traiman but it’s something that he felt comfortable sharing and appended information as though the allegations made in the email were true. In fact, this is follow up to a meeting that he had with the superintendent. Based on what was written to the Superintendent “I was wrong, it was Georgia, not North Carolina. Specifically Atlanta” it appears as though he was sharing the unfounded allegations and conspiracy that his good friend had sent. This is not a person who should be at all involved in the governance of Alameda schools.


  1. Imagine how much better his spelling, grammar, and diction would be if he had attended well-funded schools in his youth.

  2. I don’t think anyone is treating Traiman as a serious candidate. He reminds me of that Republican what’s-his-face who’d regularly run against Rob Bonta and get 5% of the votes. Protest candidate.

  3. Any chance you can objectively talk about how the various school board candidates might improve our schools? Currently we have 8th graders with 6th grade skills, only 34% meet math standards and only 30% meet Science standards.

    Setting aside the fact Leland Traiman outsmarted the District legal team and school board by successfully suing the District for its poorly constructed school parcel tax, the focus should be on how to correct the educational damage done by the current board members, the teacher unions, and California government officials by closing down California schools longer than any other state, resulting in the precipitous drop in test scores for our children and an overwhelming number of emotional and psychiatric problems in young people today coupled with a big drop in enrollment. Experts calculate this will result in generational damage to earning ability and a need to import foreign workers with better skills than California children.

    Current District solution? Spend $2 million on a new HVAC system at AHS.

    • Money for capital projects comes from a separate fund and can’t be used for operations. So $2 million for an HVAC system doesn’t shift any money away from anything any Board member or candidate might want to do instructionally.

      Also, the District doesn’t have a full-time legal presence anymore. A shame, too, because the last guy was undefeated on parcel tax lawsuits!

      • Wrong. The money being used for HVAC IS from the $7 million in federal Covid relief. The Superintendent made a presentation to the board on this subject.

    • Guess how the district isn’t going to be able to close achievement gaps? By community members suing the school district and then wanting to be on the governing board.
