  1. My name is Angela Salinardi and I filed to run for the school board for HBUHSD. I notice that you do not have my name, or Matthew Harper’s name, listed for the candidates to choose from. Please make a correction in your publication, as it is not very unbiased to leave out some of the candidates when offering the information to your readers. Thank you.
