Some Background about Rebecca Sandoval and Why She Should be Re-Elected to the Twin Rivers USD Board

with one comment

Picture of Trustee SandovalPrevious to coming to Heald College Online, I was with Twin Rivers Unified School District for many years. And, in my time with the district, I became, in many ways, the unofficial spokesperson to the Board for the Adult School.  Thus, I have gotten to know most of the board members, and I think I can honestly and accurately share about each of their strengths and problems.

Of all the Twin Rivers board members, the one who has impressed me most is Rebecca Sandoval.  She is a person who lives her convictions.  When she first got elected to the board, she told me that she would work to “give the Adult School Programs the resources and attention it deserves.”  I honestly didn’t believe her at the time, as we had many politicians make empty promises to us. But I was wrong.  She has supported the adult school students and teachers continually, even when it wasn’t popular, just as she has done the same for all the students of Twin Rivers.

This has been her record: to look carefully at the issues, determine what is the right thing to do, and then do it, despite what direction the political wind at the time is blowing.

I will be sharing more in future blog postings about Trustee Sandoval, along with some of my thoughts on the other candidates who are running in the upcoming Twin Rivers Board Election.
