Ron Mooney Effectively Tosses School Board Re-election

Incumbent Alameda Unified School District trustee Ronald Mooney appears to be uninterested in winning re-election.

In August, Mr. Mooney filed a Fair Political Practices Form 470, indicating he expects to receive and spend less than $1,000 on his campaign this year, and that he’s aware of no committees that would be making expenditures on his behalf.

And on his filing forms, he listed his occupation as “Parent/Businessman.” A sitting elected official hoping to get re-elected would typically identify themself as an incumbent to boost their chances of winning.

This year, there are nine candidates vying for three seats on the five-seat school board of trustees. The Board oversees a combined general fund budget of about $80 million per year to support just over 9,000 enrolled students.

In September, 2010, Action Alameda News reported that Mooney, through a political action committee he originally formed to support a school parcel tax in 2008, spent over $20,000 in the first six months of 2010, including $5,000 contributed to the committee by developer SunCal.

That committee also received $5,000 from facilities manager IST Management Services Inc. of Atlanta, Georgia.

The school district went on to pass a second parcel tax in 2011 which capped the amounts paid by large property owners, such as South Shore Shopping Center. That same year, Jamestown Properties, an Atlanta private-equity fund, acquired the shopping center.
