- On March 21, together with 150 CA School Board Members I went to Sacramento for a California School Boards Association (CSBA) Legislative Action Day to advocate on behalf of our public schools. We met with our state Senators and Assemblymembers and asked them to support legislation that would address school funding issues and the California teacher shortage. Last month I was elected by the school boards of surrounding cities to the CSBA Delegate Assembly. I will be representing 13 school districts in Region XXIII.
