Weekly Poll
How much do you think large monetary contributions to campaigns can sway elected officials?

Way too much; it’s seriously time to big take money out of politics.
Enough to reevaluate campaign finance laws and how they impact our political system.
Maybe a little; but in the end they still must answer to voters.
Not a concern; it’s how things work, and any serious candidate must stack some chips.

Corrections

• A Feb. 21 article, “Public ire grounds school closure,” incorrectly cited San Luis Coastal Unified School District’s budget deficit as a reason for the proposal to shutter Teach Elementary. In fact, the district looked at closing the school because of limited physical space, and the budget situation precluded the solution of expanding the campus. Shredder’s “Sad new world” column in the same edition was based in part on the misstated budget information from the brief.

• The start time for George Asdel’s opening reception at Gallery at Marina Square on March 8 was incorrectly reported in a calendar caption in our Feb. 21 issue. The event starts at 5 p.m.
