NEW ORLEANS- In a letter sent to Sharon Lo Drucker this week, the Alliance for Good Government announces the endorsement given to Drucker for the November 6 (2018) election has been rescinded. Drucker has been informed she will not be allowed to use the organization’s logo or to utilize her prior endorsement from the organization during her current term in office.
In the letter, board officials stated: “The Alliance for Good Government’s position is to honor their endorsement process and in public awareness of candidates running or in office.”
Excerpt from Letter to Drucker:
As you are aware, we had the forum for the School Board District 9 on August 8, 2018 in which you handed in The Candidate Questionnaire to us on the night of the forum and answered “No” to question #15 which states: “is there anything in your background that may be of an issue to the Alliance for Good Government, and if you have been arrested, indicted, convicted, been under criminal investigation or sanctioned, please state: where and when and give a brief explanation.”
The shoplifting incident at Walmart on July 7, 2018 was not disclosed on the Candidate Questionnaire which was signed and dated by you on July 29, 2018. At the time of the forum and endorsement we had no knowledge of this incident occurring.
We are truly sorry for our rescinding our endorsement; however, the Alliance for Good Government’s position is to honor their endorsement process and in public awareness of candidates running or in office.
