Within the past few years, I have supported candidates running with the Education Matters team but I am deeply concerned about the future of the board. When taxes are raised during an emergency crisis, and when donors are giving money to a slate with no full transparency; where is the trust? For many of you who know me, I believe raising taxes has to be the last option not the first. During a time, when working class families are struggling to put food on the table, and pay bills, the district deserves far better.
In addition, I fully support unions as I believe they are the backbone to our economy, however we must carefully examine every scenario when it comes down to elections. There are a silent majority of teachers who are not happy with what is going on in the district who want to see a real change.
I urge voters to mail in your ballot and support the Change for Children slate (4, 5, 6 on the ballot) as it’s time our students, teachers, and staff are put first.
