Lovenburg, Fernandes earn my votes

Thank goodness that our local citizenry is so engaged that hundreds of citizens felt compelled to write letters to the editor of this newspaper to endorse candidates for the upcoming Davis school board election. Bravo, Davisites, bravo! Leading our public schools in these challenging fiscal times is a thankless and tiring job. I applaud the dedicated, thoughtful and creative leadership of current trustees Lovenburg, Harris, Daleiden, Allen and Taylor. Our community is lucky you’ve been at the helm during this storm.

Much has already been said of the current slate of candidates, all of whom have an impressive amount of service to our community. My votes are being cast based on my direct experience with two candidates who I know to be open-minded, hard-working, solution-oriented and able to maintain an elevated level of decorum that is necessary to build consensus.

Susan Lovenburg is one of the most diligent, well-prepared, thoughtful and humble individuals I’ve ever had the honor of calling my friend. I can always count on her to say what she means and do what she says. Susan has a naturally curious and flexible mind that gracefully complements her innate ability to look for compromise and solutions.

Alan Fernandes has many of these same traits. He pays attention to every voice in the conversation and has an impressive facility for synthesizing large amounts of information, public opinion and financial data into solutions that benefit everyone concerned. Alan’s enthusiasm for our community is a great engine for continual improvement of our greatest asset, our high-quality public schools.

In addition to asking for your vote on behalf of Susan Lovenburg and Alan Fernandes for school board, I urge everyone to vote yes on Measure E. We must be prepared to protect the quality of education in our community.
