School board process unfair

To the Editor: 

Let me underscore Dan Peven's remarks about the inherent unfairness of the process by which the School Boards receives public commentary (5/21). 

On two seperate ocassions, I arrived early and filled out the appropriate cards, only to watch the director of the School Board, Shirley Issel, selectively choose cards of people to speak, while burying the cards of others whose views she does not agree with. Certainly, the School Board needs to adopt a fair process that values community input, not retain one that is politically motivated. The current process seems to be a clear violation of the Brown Act.
