CandidatesCornerpill arial, decease sans-serif; font-size: 12pt;”>Angie Simpson: Parent/Healthcare Executive

Former CVUSD TEACHER, Amgen Biotech Marketing Executive, City of Thousand Oaks Safety Commissioner, All-American Athlete, former ESPN Broadcaster, Resident since 2001.

I believe educational programs should work to develop not only whole selves, but also whole families and a strong community. I listen. I will represent the community, collaborate and innovate ideas to ensure the best for our children.

If elected, I will:

OPPOSE closure of elementary schools. Closures disrupt the learning and community environment. I will do all in my power to explore alternatives and save unique schools.

SUPPORT keeping the parenting program and preschool at the Horizon Hills location. The involvement of parents in the education of their children is paramount in keeping our community healthy.

ENCOURAGE innovation, public and private partnerships, and more educational approaches for STUDENTS who learn differently.

SUPPORT a common-sense approach to finances- a balanced budget with priority on classroom education. I OPPOSE additional financial resources going to administrators until teachers have the tools they need, and employee healthcare benefits are reinstated.

My goal is to foster an environment of high performing leadership. I will listen and respect our community. Most importantly, I will bring a spirit of cooperation to the board, something that has been sorely lacking to date. Our schools deserve to be the very best. We can and must do better.

YOU ARE KNOWN BY THE PEOPLE YOU ASSOCIATE WITH….. questions to ask her might be who endorses her besides a list of people I have no knowledge of?

What Unions support her? Who, in Sacramento supports her? What other politicians support her?
