Council refrains from giving school bond its support

Mayor Jim Restucci reported to the Sunnyside City Council that it was asked by Sunnyside School District officials to write a letter of support for the school bond now before local voters, and asked if the council wished to get involved in electioneering.

Restucci read the guidelines that the council would need to follow, including making sure that people on both sides of the issue were allowed equal time to speak at the council meeting in which the council decided to support an issue.

Although individual council members expressed support for the school bond, the council agreed that it does not want to make recommendations in elections.

Well, the council agreed that it does not want to make recommendations in elections.

Yet it is reported that individually council members expressed support for the school bond.

Sounds like the council made a recommendation.
Off the record: Collectively city council have No restraints on anything.

"Off the record: Collectively city council have No restraints on anything" - not sure where you are getting you information; however, you should know that the Public Disclosure Commission (PDC) governs and yes restrains us collectively. If we wanted to hear this or any other ballot measure we would have been required by law to invite both sides and allow equal time.
