It has been an honor to be a candidate for the CVUSD school board during this important election. I congratulate each of the other five candidates for their courage, hard work and commitment to our schools and community.
During this campaign, I have met many wonderful community members, developed friendships and made important connections with individuals who selflessly work for our schools, charities and other civic groups. I am excited about the possibilities for our school district and believe we need board members that work to build strong community bonds and relationships of trust.
I will be a board member that listens to understand, spends the necessary time developing working relationships and will represent the community with honesty and integrity. Something happens when you listen—you become less rigid and more collaborative and innovative in your decision-making. I will seek out and value the input of teachers, staff, administrators, parents and the community that elected me.
I believe we need fresh eyes and new board directives in order to solve the problems created by fiscal irresponsibility and a lack of planning. I am eager, qualified and prepared to take on this task.
I am ready to serve our children and our community.
I believe my background has prepared me well. Perhaps most importantly, I have three children in the district schools. I would be a voice for parents.
I would be honored to have your vote on November 8th.
Sandee Everett, MS.Ed.
