Clarification regarding Wednesday’s front page

The Sierra Sun would like to clarify some possible misinformation that stemmed from the front page story and#8220;Complaint alleges school district violated Political Reform Actand#8221; in the Wednesday, April 20, print edition.

While the story itself is accurate, we want to clarify that the complaint filed by part-time Truckee resident Denny Dickinson for alleged political violations is against the Tahoe Truckee Unified School District, and in no way implicates the Measure A Campaign Committee.

By publishing a photograph from last weekand#8217;s school board meeting with that story, we unintentionally misled our readers to believe the committee was part of the complaint, or had something to do with its allegations.

The photograph tells a story of its own, one in which Superintendent Steve Jennings expressed gratitude on behalf of the school district to the Measure A Campaign Committee, composed of Donna Morgan, its chair, and Phyllis McConn, Phebe Bell, Syd Earley, Lynn Richardson and Sidney Scott.

We regret any confusion or misunderstanding that stemmed from this decision.
