'Independent voice'

I represent public employees, and I am pleased to support Stafford Parker for the Fresno Unified School District board in Area 3. Mr. Parker was denied support from the SEIU union, not because of qualifications, but unlike his opponent, he refused to sign a pledge to that union. Mr. Parker considers it a conflict of interest to preempt his vote on the board and sell his loyalty for students to SEIU for campaign signs.

Before becoming a management employee, Mr. Parker was a union member, shop steward, and walked picket lines.

Stafford Parker will be an independent voice on the board. He is respectful of all employees and their unions, but is not beholden to them.
