Conejo Valley Schools: I voted for Dunn, Chen and Simpson

By Tony Dolz


I just put my ballot in the mailbox.  Free quality public education is important to me, so I gave my vote for school board candidates a lot of thought.  I want the best possible education for my two children who are in district schools.  I also dream about all our children excelling in life, prospering and having rich happy lives.

Three candidates share my dedication to public education and my respect for our teachers.  Our teachers, above all, have made our schools outshine most schools in the nation.  Sadly, California public schools have been shedding enrollment for the last decade.  There are several reasons why parents are vaulting their children out of public schools and into private schools and homeschooling.  Twenty-five percent of our district children are estimated to be now in private schools and homeschooling.  The quality of our schoolteachers is not one of those reasons.  Many parents feel bullied by Sacramento’s radical meddling in their children’s education and the dismissing of their family values.  Could that be a reason?

I voted for Mike Dunn, Amy Chen and Angie Simpson.  These candidates have the clearest and heart-felt understanding of how to stop the sinking enrollment that threatens our school funding, the quality of education and property values.  They believe in parental rights and want to ensure that your voices are heard.

In 2012 the parents and residents of Thousand Oaks, Newbury Park and Westlake cast 23,000 votes to put me on the school board.  That was huge.

If you are one of those 23,000 voters who voted for me, I ask you to consider voting for Mike Dunn, Amy Chen and Angie Simpson.  23,000 votes will put them on the school board, easily.
