Goodwill of Silicon Valley is trying to disentangle itself from a political battle in San Jose.
Mike Fox, Jr. of Goodwill says his board voted to remain neutral on the measure.
“It’s disappointing that we’ve been caught up into this controversy through no wish of our own,” Fox said. “We didn’t ask to be. We didn’t give permission to use our name. It just got pulled in. There’s nothing I can do about that other than just correct the record.”
Fox says Goodwill has no intention of cutting 100 jobs, no matter the outcome of the election. He says he has no idea where the opposition campaign came up with the figure.
