Los Altos School District election supporters are big spenders


Financial support continues to flow in for the campaigns for Los Altos School District candidates and the Measure N school bond.

A new Political Action Committee appeared on the scene Oct. 15, raising more than $23,000 over the past few weeks, according to updated campaign financing disclosures. LASD Parents for Great Schools has sent direct-mail pieces in support of school board candidates Martha McClatchie, John Swan and incumbent Tamara Logan and supporting Measure N.

The group has raised a total of $23,391, with 35 contributions of more than $100. The majority of donors are Bullis Charter School parents. In addition to spending money on mailers, LASD Parents for Great Schools contributed $8,189 to Swan, $8,102 to McClatchie and $1,889 to Logan.

The additional contributions, plus new reports of individual donors, have boosted the coffers of candidates in the Los Altos School District Board of Trustees race. Five candidates are running for three seats on the board in Tuesday’s election.

McClatchie continues to lead the pack, with $45,898 raised to date, including more than $6,000 in individual contributions since the last report was issued earlier this month.

Following McClatchie is Swan, who has raised a total of $23,769. Swan has added $2,437 in individual contributions to his campaign since the last report.

Sangeeth Peruri has raised a total of $18,525, with an additional $399 in individual contributions and a $3,500 nonmonetary contribution for design services.

Logan’s new fundraising total is $11,285, which includes $375 in individual donations.

Vladimir Ivanovic collected $350 in individual donations for an updated total of $11,145.

Measure N

The Yes on Measure N campaign has now raised $102,500. The campaign received several new donations, including $10,000 from Blach Construction Co., which has worked with the district in the past.

Other notable donations include $5,000 from the Los Altos Educational Foundation; $2,000 from the California Schools Employee Association; $2,000 from Burke, Williams and Sorenson LLP, a legal firm that works with the district; and $1,000 from the San Jose-based construction company Duran & Venables Inc.
