It was an honor to volunteer, without pay, as the Fresno Unified School District superintendent for six months. I saw the dedication of the district leaders and teachers as they struggled to eliminate the achievement gap and raise the performance of all students.
I accepted this significant opportunity due to the request by Pat Barr. She was the board president during my volunteer time, so we worked together often. She is bright, energetic, fiscally responsible, cares deeply for all children and deserves to be re-elected.
