Why Susan’s earned our vote

By
From page A4 | October 12, 2012 |

Here are the reasons why we endorse, and will be voting for, Susan Lovenburg to return to the Davis school board for a second term:

* Commitment. Susan has demonstrated over the past five years that she is focused on being a trustee, rather than looking ahead to a future political career. One example: She is the only trustee who committed her time to complete the California School Boards Association Masters in Governance program in 2011.

* Preparation. At school board meetings Susan has consistently demonstrated a grasp of difficult finance and other issues that can only be a result of taking time to learn and prepare for meetings and important choices.

* Respect for the public’s role. Over the past five years, Susan had demonstrated in multiple ways that she is respectful of her relationship with members of the public who are voters and parents. She was the primary force for creation of District Dollars, an interactive website that educates visitors and provides transparency about school finance issues. She spends countless hours at meetings large and small outside official school board sessions. Her willingness to come to schools and other venues has left no doubt that she values input and respects the challenges facing parents in finding time to participate.

* Independence. Susan has formed her own views, through education and listening, and this independence has been a notable characteristic of her first board term. It would have been easy, and understandable, to simply accede to the views of other trustees on challenging issues, but Susan has not opted for that easy path. Instead, she has looked at the issues and the information herself, invited different perspectives, and made her own decisions.

All the trustees and our school communities have been forced to deal with significant financial challenges over the past few years, and these are likely to continue for the foreseeable future. Susan Lovenburg has been a steady, reliable and informed representative in her first term, and we look forward to seeing her win a second term.
