I must respond to "Three backed for Ceres school board" (Oct. 1, Letters) from the Ceres Unified Teachers' Union political action committee. As a Ceres school board member, I have worked alongside Diane Sol, Yvette Nunes and Eric Ingwerson. I have great respect for the leadership they provide in serving the district. I want to also state that all six of those running for the board are good people who want to do good things for our kids.
The letter endorsing the three challengers was very disappointing to me. The union was not even willing to listen to the views held by incumbents Sol, Nunes and Ingwerson. The union leadership, like so often in the past, has taken the low road in addressing the issues that face our district.
Please do not believe that this union leadership represents the terrific teachers that teach our students each day. Thankfully, we have great teachers in our classrooms that ignore such negative behavior, and I am asking each voter in our community to do likewise.
