Simultaneous protests for Paso Robles
February 6, 2012
Two separate but parallel demonstrations Tuesday in Paso Robles will highlight perceived mismanagement by top city and school officials.
Teachers will be a rally at Paso Robles School District board’s 6 p.m. meeting at district headquarters, 800 Niblick Road, to object to a plan to shave salaries in order to balance a recently discovered budget deficit of nearly $2 million. Now, the district faces possible state receivership.
At City Hall, 1000 Spring Street, a gathering of residents is expected to “wear red” starting at 6 p.m. to voice opinions on revelations of personnel issues relating to the city’s top police administrator, Chief Lisa Solomon, and City Manager Jim App. Attendees plan to crowd the city council meeting at 7:30 p.m.
