Area 4 – Gustavo Arroyo, legislative aide for Sen. Alex Padilla. He has worked on education legislation, monitored and analyzed 100s of education bills considered by the Senate Education Committee.Area 5 – Diana Rodriguez, product of SCUSD schools and a parent in the district. She has worked as a teacher’s assistant and volunteered at her children’s schools.

Area 7 – Patrick Kennedy, labor attorney whose wife is a substitute teacher in SCUSD. Patrick is running unopposed and will not even be on the ballot.

All four candidates support preparing young people for college OR career by emphasizing the basics (math, reading, and writing) while adding skills for the future. Students these days need computer skills, teamwork, critical thinking, as well as vocational and technical training. The candidates will promote skills that will prepare them for life by teaching them responsibility, respect, and discipline.
