Tucson Education Association endorses Cam Juarez & Kristel Foster for TUSD Governing Board electionby Carolyn Classen on Aug. 30, 2012, under Education, Life, Politics
From Tucson Education Association website (click here):
After interviewing the majority of candidates, Cam Juarez and Kristel Foster overwhelmingly demonstrated TEA values and commitment to quality public education. We believe these two candidates who share our values will be able to lead TUSD in a positive direction in the future. Educators, students and the community will benefit with Kristel and Cam serving on the TUSD Governing Board.
Vote for Cam Juarez and Kristel Foster for TUSD Governing Board.
Tucson Education Association Political Action Committee (TEAPAC)
TEA’s mission is “To secure professional status and respect for public school employees and to promote quality public education”.
Juarez works as a neighborhood reinvestment project coordinator, and Foster is a program specialist at Sunnyside School District language acquisition dept.
Read my previous blog post about the 12 official candidates seeking the 3 volunteer positions on the Tucson Unifed School District governing board (click here).
Current TUSD board member & former President, Dr. Mark Stegeman is seeking re-election and he will be speaking at Drinking Liberally on September 5, 6 p.m. at The Shanty, 401 E. 9th St. Dr. Stegeman was elected when he, Miguel Cuevas, and Judy Burns ran unopposed for the 3 board seats in 2008. A TUSD governing board candidate forum is also scheduled for September 26 by Drinking Liberally, same place, same time.
And I hear that the Saguaro Eastside Democrats will be hosting a TUSD candidate forum on Monday September 17, so save that date to hear from these and other candidates. This is a non-partisan race so all twelve candidates will be invited to that forum.
Attend these upcoming forums and vote wisely on or before November 6.
