It is my responsibility as a father of three young children to provide them with the best education opportunities possible. As San Clemente’s representative to the Board of Trustees of the Capistrano Unified School District, my duties now extend to all of our children who attend our schools.
There is much political discord in education today at the state and national level, and budgetary uncertainties from Sacramento certainly do not help. But we cannot use these as excuses to allow our lofty educational standards in South Orange County to lapse. Capistrano Unified is a strong, proud and high performing school district. I have worked hard these past years to restore stability and unwind some of the mistakes made by others in recent history.
The future for Capistrano Unified is bright. My focus for the coming years is to maintain Capistrano Unified’s status as the premier large school district in California. I will work towards this end by continuing to increase school choice while maintaining fiscal prudence and balanced budgets.
I would be honored to receive your vote and continuing support.
