Fernandes is right for board

By
From page A6 | April 29, 2014 |

I’m writing to support the appointment of Alan Fernandes to the Davis school board. He was the runner-up in the 2012 election and has professional experience working as an attorney in the field of education. He is also a dad of two young boys in a Davis school.

But more importantly, I believe Alan will use his legal expertise and congenial personality to move our already strong public schools to the next level of excellence. His appointment to the school board will strengthen the voice for education that emphasizes academic excellence for all students. He will be an advocate who brings our small and progressive community together rather than fracturing it apart.

I recognize that my dream for my children to become successful adults relies heavily on their education: to be intellectually challenged; to be compassionate toward themselves and others; and to have the knowledge that they are shaped by the entire community within which they live, receive and contribute.

We all want the best for our children. We work tirelessly to achieve that. It is time to show our children how to live their best by reimagining our precious public educational system to serve one by serving all. Alan will do so by pushing beyond existing structures and I support his nomination to the school board unequivocally.
