Last week, AFT Local 1481 teamed up with the League of Women Voters to host two Candidates Forums to showcase the five people who have chosen to run for the three open seats of the JUHSD Board of Trustees. Because this is the first election for these positions in 12 years, AFT 1481 felt it incredibly important to create opportunities for Daly City, Pacifica, Brisbane, and Colma’s voters to hear from each of the candidates in a venue where they get to ask the questions. Both the October 1 forum at Daly City’s Westmoor High School and the October 2 forum at Pacifica’s Oceana High School were filmed. Below is the unedited video from both nights.
When the second night is available, we will update this post. We apologize, but due to limited time and resources, we were unable to edit the titles and credits for the second night, but the forum is here in its entirety.
Please be sure to emphasize to your friends, family, and neighbors that this is an important election for our school district. As we continue to deal with the difficulty of the limited funding of our Northern San Mateo County schools and the many challenges facing public education in general, the three people voters eventually choose to join our School Board on November 4 will play a critical leadership role. Let’s turn out the vote and embrace this opportunity to let the district know what type of leadership we are looking for.
