I strongly support Joan Laursen for the Pleasanton School Board. She truly cares about the students in Pleasanton and will work hard to ensure that all students receive a high quality education. Joan takes the time to understand complex issues, having educated herself about the school finance system in California and the intricacies of the school district budget. With her professional financial background, she will be a responsible steward of the public education dollars in Pleasanton.
Joan has spent many years serving on school district committees and in leadership roles in PTA, school site councils and other school groups. She has volunteered in the classrooms and is clearly familiar with the challenges facing our students and educators today.
I truly admire her unending commitment to the students of our district. When Joan takes on a task or a position, she gives 100%. Joan is truly someone we can count on to speak up for children. An intelligent, caring and highly capable individual, she will be a tremendous asset to our community as a school board trustee. Please join me in supporting Joan Laursen on Nov. 2.
