It was my honor to be invited by my friend and Democratic activist, Sallye McKenzie, to speak about Education and Democracy at the Coastside United for Action meeting in Pacifica last night. What a terrific group! They are partnering with Sister District, working in their community and beyond to further candidates and initiatives. I talked about my son and our experience with the public school system, special education, and mental health supports. I shared insights about the role of the County Board of Education, what I hope to accomplish if elected, and how I plan to approach it. The questions were insightful and I really enjoyed the evening. Many thanks to Sallye for inviting me to speak!
