I’m writing today to express my strong endorsement for Joe Lemas for School Board Trustee Area 2. As a parent of a recent SVHS graduate, and also a current 4th grader, I all too well have been witness to the struggles facing the Board in recent years. It’s time for a change! As a parent I’m sick of the Board for being in the news for all the wrong reasons, and I’m discouraged by the constant drama between members that takes away the focus from students.
We need a candidate that comes to the board with a collaborative approach to seek solutions to the problems, and be a part of the TEAM, and puts students first! We need a candidate that has NO personal agenda, but sees the need for improvement, and wants to be part of the solution. That candidate is Joe Lemas! A Candidate that understands Board stability and strong leadership is critical to get the students back on track. A candidate with a banking background to navigate a complicated budget to be a good steward of taxpayer dollars. A candidate who has two young students in the district who are his driving force and motivation. A candidate who stands for educational excellence for ALL, recognizes the importance of mental health support & Campus safety and recognizes the need to retain high quality staff.
If you’re a parent ready for change, and progress, like me, Vote Joe!
