I want to share some recommendations with respect to the November 8 election that involves educational positions.
Sonoma County Superintendent of Schools: Amie Carter
Amie Carter is the only candidate for the Sonoma County Superintendent of Schools. Her opponent, Brad Coscarelli dropped out of the race due to a health issue. However, Brad’s name will still appear on the ballot. Therefore, Amie must still secure 50+1 % of the votes in order to win the election. I feel that Amie has the background and experience to be an effective Superintendent of Schools for Sonoma County.
Sonoma Valley Unified School District: Area 2 – Joe Lemas
As the retired Superintendent of the Sonoma Valley Unified School District, I continue to be interested in our school district. It is important to me as an educator and resident in Sonoma Valley that there be an effective Board of Trustees who will work well together and provide support and guidance to the Superintendent of Schools and staff.
The qualities I feel Joe has include:
