Another name that needs work is Ms. Morgan's. It is spelled correctly only when it has the proper diacritical mark: Renée Morgan

My apologies to Mr. Nealis. Give us some time HPB...the profiles are coming.

This question and a comment for Matt Stamey, Candidate for San Ramon Valley Fire Board. First I wanted to thank him for his service as the President of the Fire Board. Background: The Fire District’s I phone app was developed using District finances, resources, and energy. This intellectual property was then gifted to a company with tax exempt status called Pulse Point. This company has you listed as the Chairman and the Fire Chief Rich Price as the President. http://pulsepoint.org/board/ Question: What steps if any will you take to recoup the start up costs of this company back to the District? While the Fire Chief and the District were pursuing this venture, were there any operations of the District that suffered?

I would like to know where all the school board and fireboard candidates come down on prop 32.
