By Luis Jimenez, DuPont
I’m running for a position on the local School Board because I am a concerned parent and taxpayer. As a proud resident of DuPont, I’m impressed by the education my children are receiving in our Steilacoom Historical School District. However, our current depleting school budget threatens our school to continue to educate our children with the best teachers.
All too often I am frustrated of the amount of taxpayer money spent on wasteful projects that go nowhere, and not further on its mission to provide our students with a world class education. The School Board needs new members who are willing to refocus on the administration, the mission of educating students, and creating a responsible budget to accomplish that. If I am elected to the School Board, I will do that.
