Letter From Sarah Hedges

Over the last two weeks we have been presented with two different opinions of the value of having a Ph.D. when running for School Board. I have met many extremely intelligent people who have chosen not to continue their education, and many who have. There are people from both groups who I would wish to have as a member of the School Board in my community.

I would like to encourage everyone to attend the SCUSD, School Board Candidate Forum that will be held on October 2 at 7 p.m., at the Adrian Wilcox High School, Mission City Performing Arts Center, 3250 Monroe St., Santa Clara, 95051.

The event will be hosted by the Santa Clara Unified Council of PTAs and moderated by the League of Women Voters, San Jose/Santa Clara. Spanish translation will be available.

Please come and ask questions, listen to the answers and make your own informed decision about who is best qualified to serve on the School Board in our community.
