D.A. DUMANIS, once dis-invited from the City College campus due to students irate over her perceived mishandling of the Diana Gonzalez murder case, has turned up again at a San Diego school.
This time, the Republican mayoral candidate managed to weasel herself into a class at Point Loma High School, alma mata of a number of people at the OB Rag including this author. Dumanis spoke in Room 301, according to the Point Loma High School Daily Bulletin, on Wednesday, January 11th from 12:30-1:30 with teacher Palmiotto hosting.
This bit of campaigning disguised as a school visit did not sit well with some parents. @Bonnie Dumanis on Twitter actually posted a picture of this adventure and it claimed, according to the caption, that Bonnie Dumanis was there to “meet with students at Pt. Loma High School and discuss her ‘Blueprint for America’s Finest Schools.’ http://twitpic.com/89b2nf
Several parents called the high school to complain about this usage of a tax-payer funded academic site masquerading as a staging ground for the shameless D.A. to politic at. I personally spoke with Vice Principal Kevin Gormly and told him that it was now incumbent upon the High School to invite Democrat Mayoral Candidate Bob Filner, a former SDSU professor himself, to pay a visit to the Chatsworth Blvd. campus and inspire the students.
The Vice Principal claimed to “not know much” of what transpired with Dumanis invading the Point Loma campus but promised to “look into it.”
I would like Bonnie Dumanis to know, as an Ocean Beach resident and alumni of PLHS, that she needs to get the memo that people in this area of town do not wish to see her parading around and acting like she cares about kids and “educational reform,” When, in reality, what is actually happening is BLATANT POLITICKING. The despicable D.A. was NOT welcome by most OB citizens when she came around last summer pimping some campaign donations from clueless Del Monte Ave. McMansion locals and she is not welcome at our children’s schools either! Get a clue, Bonnie! DUMANIS, OUT OF OB!
