I want to thank everyone who supported me in the campaign. Precinct walking, talking and sharing information with your friends and community does have its reward:
We campaigned on ideas, on principles, and on the needs of our students and our community. This has produced a decisive victory. Yet I am joining a board made up of a majority who have demonstrated different viewpoints from my own. The coming experience promises to be interesting.
Even with the passage of Proposition 30, the CUSD board now "owns" a near-immediate budget crisis for the current school year. Staying true to principles, I'm looking forward to tackling this difficult problem without delay. I ask for your continued support and counsel as we do so.
