EDITOR'S NOTE: On consecutive days, Patch is running candidate statements from each Capistrano Unified School District Board of Trustees candidate who filed one with the county Registrar of Voters. Trustee Area No. 5 covers Aliso Viejo.
NAME: Bill Perkins
As your school trustee, I will make students my first priority. In a time of shrinking budgets we need to prioritize our spending and our students must come first.
As your trustee I will:
Fight to make our class sizes smaller.
Fight to restore all of the 15 curriculum days that were eliminated from the end of the school year.
Fight to retain as many of our teachers as possible.
Fight to restore as many recently eliminated programs as possible.
I will not:
Support any new taxes for any reason – including parcel taxes!
Support any new bond financing.
I believe in making sure we provide a quality education for all students, including adequate and safe classrooms.
I have a B.A. from Cal State Fullerton and years of experience as a city planning commissioner. Together, we can make sure every child at CUSD has an opportunity to gain a quality education. On November 6th I respectfully ask for your vote! To find out more about myself and my campaign, go to: billperkins4cusd.com
