Thank you, Elizabeth, for your support of my campaign! It means a lot to me to know that my qualities as an interested and effective listener, and as an analytical thinker, are recognized.

Thanks also to Trevor Knaggs for recognizing the time and energy that I (and the other candidates) have invested in our campaigning. It means a lot to me to be acknowledged as a candidate for a job that "will involve many late-night meetings and countless hours of email and phone communication."

I think the best candidates for the board are Sandy Piderit and Joan Laursen.

I first heard about Laursen when my child attended Walnut Grove, and I have seen how hard she works for our schools. I do not know Laursen or Piderit on a personal level, but after researching all the candidates, I feel that both Piderit and Laursen are people that will listen and will always have the best interest of the children in the Pleasanton School District.

I hope others can see that Laursen and Piderit are what our district needs right now. We need people who will not be afraid to challenge the status quo and will not just say yes to anything that is proposed by the administration. We need people like Laursen and Piderit on the Pleasanton School Board!

Sandy is smart, she does her homework and she is involved in our local school system. She reminds me of Cindy McGovern in the early days.
