Campaign day travels

Saturday, I spoke with many people from Somersett, Sutro, Keystone and W. 7th st. There was one prevailing concept that kept coming up, that no book wants to be judged by its cover, but by its core and character. It is time to read the book and treat one another with dignity, respect, honor and love. There is much contained in the chrysalis. We need to listen to our parents and educators, we need to know our students! This idea resounds in the hearts of our community. Opportunity is for all students! Let’s WIN!!! Together we prepare kids for life.
We will be out in a community near you, look for us.

WEA/WESP

Tonight I had the pleasure to meet with the folks of WEA/WESP. They had some great questions. I talked about strategy to curb student to student and student to teacher abuse and remove inequitable burdens on teachers. I mentioned the inequality of the weighted funding to the students outside of the margin, how profoundly gifted and learning disabled are provided more funding while the bulk are marginalized. I explained some of my vision and how innovation further finds schools funding. I provided my thoughts on stewardship of resources. I talked about listening to the educator (specifically through the pandemic) and if we don’t we fail them.

George Washington

A primary object should be the education of our youth in the science of government. In a republic, what species of knowledge can be equally important? And what duty more pressing than communicating it to those who are to be the future guardians of the liberties of the country?

Chadwick Boseman


“Wakanda will no longer watch from the shadows. We can not. We must not. We will work to be an example of how we, as brothers and sisters on this earth, should treat each other. Now, more than ever, the illusions of division threaten our very existence. We all know the truth: more connects us than separates us. But in times of crisis the wise build bridges, while the foolish build barriers. We must find a way to look after one another as if we were one single tribe.”

Chadwick Boseman Actor, Black Panther

Produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Walt Disney

Thank you Mr. Boseman for your contribution to the good. We will always remember you!
