The Ceres Unified Teachers Association would like to commend and thank the Board of Trustees for unanimously supporting a "No" on Proposition 32 resolution at their meeting Sept. 25.

They, along with many other responsible Californians, understand that this proposition would silence many important voices in advocating for education and other vital public services. The measure, if passed, would cause a dangerous imbalance allowing corporate and other economically powerful interests to exercise undue influence over public policy by essentially barring professional and labor groups who stand up for the interests of the working and middle classes.

Earlier last month the board supported a "Yes" on Proposition 30, which our association also strongly supports as the best means to fix California's budget problems, including the adequate funding of education and to keep our state on the road to complete economic recovery. Well done, ladies and gentlemen!
