NAME: Gary Pritchard

OCCUPATION: Governing Board Member, Capistrano Unified School District, Trustee Area 5

Capistrano Unified needs vision from involved parents who understand what is best for our children. It also needs experienced leadership to handle the tough challenges that face our schools. Since taking office two years ago, I have provided that vision and leadership.

As Capistrano Unified board president, I have restored stability in our district. I have fought to ensure that our tax dollars support safe, well-maintained schools and that our children have top quality teachers.

As a native Californian, I am invested in our community. I have worked with members of our business community and the city of Aliso Viejo to enhance scholarship and educational opportunities throughout our schools. My daughter attends Oak Grove Elementary School, and my wife and I own a home in Aliso Viejo.

I am a father who supports local control and has fought against external challenges and difficulties that continue to threaten our schools locally and across the state. I have the know-how and vision needed to lead Capistrano Unified.

I look forward to continue serving the families and taxpayers of Aliso Viejo. Please join me in keeping Capistrano Unified the best large district in the state!

Vote Gary Pritchard for the Capistrano Unified Board of Trustees.

Pritchard has done nothing to protect our students in these bad economic times. He doesn't deserve to be re-elected.

Wow... now people are posting my FORMER salary!! I had not checked this page for awhile. Perhaps I should have! :-) Thank you very much to the people that have supported me on this page. I do appreciate it. Just for the record, I also work during the summer, teaching Community Education Classes. Those classes, taught on my own time, actually make money for CUSD. Without that extra work, I would have earned less. And, my salary is based on twenty years experience, my Master's Degree in Educational Leadership and the training that I received over the years. I am certain that I will be making a lot less this coming year but I will do whatever is necessary in this economy. Thank you for your comments, Julie Collier! I have to admit, I appreciate what "P.A.L." said about me! But perhaps that is not the best name to choose since it is a common moniker for your organization.
