Ballot Statement of Jim Reardon Capistrano Unified School District Governing Board Area 2
The current CUSD Board of Trustees has reduced the school year, cut teachers and increased class size. We can't afford another "all-cuts" budget. Now more than ever, our school board must focus on education and not union contracts that protect senior staff. A change in leadership is needed. Together we can put students first.
I'm a parent, engineer, active business owner, and a founder of a successful educational non-profit. I am able to see past the heated rhetoric of education insiders to protect our students and schools. I favor classroom reform, school choice, local control and program improvement.
I will fight for:
- Smaller class sizes
- A quality education for all students
- Retention of enrichment, vocational and sports programs.
Your tax dollars cannot be wasted. I promise never to vote for a tax increase or extension. We pay enough tax and Mello-Roos assessments already. To improve transparency between CUSD and community, we will begin broadcasting our school board meetings. Parents have a right to know how decisions are being made. Elect me, Jim Reardon, to your school board. www.votereardon.com
