As the school board campaigns unfold, there is talk of what happened on whose watch. I am happy to attest to the fact that from the time Luisa Medina took office in late 2002, she doggedly asked questions whenever the district administration presented slippery information and recommendations.
She persisted until the full board took actions which led to the hiring of a highly capable and trustworthy permanent superintendent and chief financial officer.
Luisa has a fine sense of when to ask questions and when to oppose ill-advised actions. More importantly, she has demonstrated a formidable ability to formulate good solutions and to convince others to support them.
We need her on the school board. We also need Patricia Barr, Stafford Parker and Julie Hornback. Each brings a unique and much-needed set of skills.
