Tuesday, December 13, 2022 I will become officially the Area 2 School Board Trustee for Sonoma Valley Unified School District.
What journey this has been to arrive at this place.
When I speak of the journey, it is more than the election campaign - it is the journey that life has taken that has guided me to here and right now.
Today when I went to the voting center to cast my ballot, I reflected on the times in the past when I would go to my neighborhood voting center and my neighbor George was always there to greet me as a volunteer, checking me in and giving my kids “I Voted” stickers. Many of you likely also had George help you each election in The Springs.
Collectively We Are Not Okay, But We Will Be - Together. / Colectivamente no estamos bien, pero lo estaremos - unidos.
we will not keep the collective trauma buried, and instead we will confront it head on with love, compassion and most importantly services that all of us can access. I want you to all know that I see you, I know you are not always okay and that you are trying - I am trying with you. That you will heal and we will heal. That if we talk about it, if we confront it, if we sit in the discomfort of it together, then collectively we will heal and we will make sure that we will be okay together.
We are what makes community, we are the movement that creates the changes we want in Area 2/The Springs and our schools. With all our imperfections, we are what creates joy, laughter, beauty and the energy to get things done.
One of the things I learned from an early age from my grandpa, was the strong and unwavering belief in unions. When my grandpa came to Los Angeles from Colorado he did many jobs, but he eventually worked at Douglas Aircraft Company as a welder and was a part of the union there and that is where he stayed until he retired. He taught me that the union kept him safe at work. The union was the reason he had fair wages...
