I am running for Coronado Unified School District (CUSD) Board. I am a retired public school teacher, wife, mother and grandmother. After spending over a year attending CUSD School Board meetings as a concerned CUSD parent, I believe effective governing is possible despite societal divisions. As a board trustee, I will engage in informed debate and reasoned decision-making before the public. The important work of governance includes budgeting, planning, internal policy making, managing the Superintendent, and communicating with the public. I will strive to be a Board member to whom every mother, father, and grandparent can comfortably approach.
