Jim Stoker's April 1 letter to the editor regarding the La Cañada Flintridge Educational Foundation was a hodgepodge of baseless allegations and flat out untruths that illustrate the old maxim, “No good deed goes unpunished.”
Stoker is wrong when he alleges our school district cannot ask community members to donate to the foundation. The law absolutely permits this. At the risk of restating the obvious, donations to the LCFEF are entirely voluntary. That's while we call them “donations.”
Stoker alleges the LCFEF is “too involved in the politics of the district.” Nonsense. The LCFEF does not endorse candidates for the school board, and a recent board member resigned her position with the LCFEF once she was elected to the LCUSD board.
