We are proud to have the support of so many city leaders, organizations and individual educators, parents/caregivers and students…

For Families

I am committed to making our student assignment system more transparent and predictable. I want parents to have multiple viable options for their area’s public school…

For Students & Educators

Bringing necessary resources to our students and educators is a top priority. I will create legislation to get SFUSD basic aid which would bring over $150 Million to our schools…

Come C.I.C.* it with Mark Sanchez!

Be a part of our *Community Integrity Campaign! Our campaign is not taking donations. Let’s put our money where it belongs… With Our Students and Schools!

Wait…. Why NO donations?!?! Our Community Integrity Campaign – join us!

In the last election for our local San Francisco Board of Education, candidates spent nearly $100,000 to convince the public (unsuccessfully) to vote against their own interests. Charter schools lobbies have spent millions of dollars across the Bay Area to take over school boards. We want big money and special interests out of our politics. Access to political positions of power should not be about how much money a candidate can raise. While we are not saying there should be no money in politics, until big money is out of politics, all elections should be publicly financed and there should be a cap on how much money can be spent by any candidate.

Over the years in San Francisco, grassroots campaigns have demonstrated that we can win campaigns without taking special interest money. We believe that my record and experience as an educator is invaluable to best serve the needs of students, families and educators on the Board of Education. We are able to win on the strength of our ideas, experience in education, and powerful relationships with family, youth and educators. We will do the hard work and put in the time in to engage voters across the city. We will win.

So I ask my supporters to contribute to support your local public school. Schools need your help now more than every, and every donation will help make a better world for our students.
