Vote for Lovenburg, Measure E

From page A4 | October 12, 2012 |

I recommend voting for Susan Lovenburg for school board and in favor of Measure E.

Susan is unfailingly well-informed, patient, courteous and cool-headed. I first met Susan when she was on the board of the Willett Elementary PTA, in charge of the PTA’s weekly newsletter. Editing and producing this newsletter was a surprisingly challenging job, involving not only the obvious writing, formatting and proofreading, but also negotiating the politics of which announcements to include in our limited space.

The way Susan handled issues regarding the newsletter was characteristic of her approach to other issues on the PTA board. She avoided snap decisions and instead, carefully and thoughtfully examined each question from a variety of angles and always considered the broader effects on the community.

I supported Susan when she ran for school board the first time because I thought the district really needed someone with her intelligence and even-handedness, and they have served her well during her time on the school board.

Honestly, given what the board has had to deal with the past four years since the economy crashed, it’s hard to imagine why anyone would want to serve on the board. That Susan is willing to put herself forward again bespeaks unusual dedication to Davis schools and our children.

Of course, voting for Measure E is one way to help make up for the funding cuts that Susan and the rest of the school board have been faced with. Measure E was carefully written to maintain the current budget — which is already cut from the pre-crash figures — by renewing Measure A, with a bump if Proposition 30 fails to pass.

Lovenburg has the experience and skills that the school board needs in this time of continuing economic crisis, and Measure E will reduce the effect of that crisis on our schools. Please join me in supporting her and Measure E.
