Dear Friends and Supporters,
Let me again thank you for your support. I look forward to working with all of you to serve our families and neighborhoods.
You have heard me pledge my commitment to continue to work to improve education in Los Angeles. We have a lot of work to do. The young people of our communities need a person with vision, passion and experience on the school board to help move the agenda of educational justice forward.
I am proud to announce my strong support for Monica Garcia to succeed me as the Board Member for District 2 where I served for four and a half years.
We need Monica Garcia on the School Board. She has been an effective leader and advocate for reform as my Chief of Staff for the past four and a half years. Her leadership contributed to our success in many important efforts:
- The A-G initiative to raise academic standards and make college prep classes available for all students in every neighborhood.
- The $14 billion program to build new schools to relieve overcrowding.
- The increase in neighborhood and community stakeholder involvement like the Boyle Heights Learning Collaborative, the Belmont Education Collaborative and Communities for Educational Equity.
I urge you to get involved and help elect Monica Garcia to represent us on School Board. Again, thank you for all you do for our communities.
Councilmember, District 14
