Members of the Modesto City Schools board play a very important role in the direction of the education of our children and are vital to the tone of how learning is approached and delivered. It's important to have knowledgeable people who work well with others and are committed to empowering staff to do the right things for student learning and foster a positive culture. After listening to the candidates, I urge you to vote for Gary Lopez -- to have the best board we can have for our students, parents and taxpayers.
Knowing Gary Lopez and knowing the passion he has for making the education of our kids a priority, I cannot think of a better incumbent to continue to move the schools in the right direction. Gary has not lost the passion for the position and, more importantly, he has continued to move forward.
