Trustee candidate endorsement

We hope you were all able to watch the forum last night and hear from the candidates running for PVUSD Board of Trustee seats in Area III and Area VI. School Board Trustees have an oversight and accountability for our School District. The decisions they make as a school Board affect us as educators, affect the students and their families, and also the community that we all live in. We currently have two candidates running for the Area III seat that Karen Osmundson will be vacating, Amanda Hernandez and Oscar Soto. We also have two candidates running for the Area VI seat, Maria Orozco (incumbent) and Adam Bolaños Scow. If you were unable to watch last night the recording has been posted on the website and on our Facebook. Our membership received their electronic ballots via their personal emails from “Election Buddy” at 7:30 pm on Wednesday September 2nd and they will remain open for voting until Sunday, September 6th at 9:30 pm. We hope you will take the time to read over the questionnaires from each candidate from PVFT and the survey conducted by our affiliate, Monterey Bay Central Labor Council. This provides important information on the values of each candidate, measures they support or don’t, and will help you all to make an informed decision on who should be endorsed that supports the values of teachers, students, and labor unions. Teachers’ working conditions are students’ learning conditions.

Area III:

Amanda Hernandez

Oscar Soto

Area VI:

Maria Orozco

Adam Bolaños Scow
