The upcoming school board election is important for all of our community, not just for those with school-age children. A good public school system is good for our community and society as a whole. A strong public school system helps to create better-educated, more resourceful students, which directly impacts the sustainability and desirability of our community.
It is important that we elect people to the school board who will be able to spend our tax money wisely to maintain and ideally strengthen our schools.
I have chosen to endorse Nancy Peterson because I believe she will make smart choices with our resources to help improve the Davis school system for all students. I have met with Nancy on several occasions over the past four months; I believe her experience and philosophical outlook will be of great value on the school board during these challenging times.
We are fortunate in this election to have several strong candidates to choose from.
