Congratulations to teams and teachers. The amount of time devoted to excelling at We the People is extraordinary - fantastic to see extraordinary results as well. Good luck to next year's team - that's going to be a hard act to follow!

I was fortunate to judge the first two days of competition and be able to see both Amador and Foothill on Monday. They were extraordinary. The content knowledge and critical thinking of these young adults is testament to their hard work, their parents, our community and the skills of their coaches, Stacey Sklar and Jeremy Detamore. Many people helped along the way. The poise and sportsmanship exhibited is an example of civic virtue. I am so proud of them.
