New School Board Events

Delaine Eastin Cohosts Fall Kickoff for Sunder

Former State Superintendent for Public Instruction Delaine Eastin spoke powerfully in favor of Madhavi Sunder’s campaign for Davis School Board at an event at the home of Rudy and Gabriela Zaragoza. Eastin suggested that Sunder had three qualities crucial to a successful leader—courage, vision, and heart.

Joining Eastin at the event were elected leaders County Supervisor Jim Provenza; former State Assemblywoman Helen Thomson; School Board Trustee Alan Fernandes; and former Justice Cruz Reynoso. Bob Schelen, head of the Yolo County Democratic Party, also joined the event. The Yolo County Democratic Party has endorsed Sunder, as has the Davis Teachers Association.

Helen Thomson, who herself served on the Davis School Board for twelve years, spoke of the important role of the School Board in the community—and her conviction that Sunder was ideal for that role.

The event kicked off Sunder’s fall campaign. “I am honored and humbled to have the enthusiastic support of such hard working public servants, who have spent decades working for our community in their positions in government.”
