Elect A Different Candidate
(From Jose Granda Press Release) With the theme “Elect a Different Candidate” Jose J, Granda, PhD, an engineering professor at California State University, Sacramento, started his campaign for a position on the Davis School Board.
Jose states the reasons for running for a position on the Davis School Board. “I have been an engineering professor for 34 years and I know education from elementary to the university levels. My qualifications in education allow me to provide leadership in education and if the voters allow me, I can make a major contribution to education in Davis. I understand curriculum, teachers and students. I have guided students from high school to their PhD’s. My three T’s of my campaign are my priorities. Technology, Teachers, and Taxpayers. Most certainly this election will offer an opportunity to elect at least one representative of these three priorities on the board. All other candidates are the same, think alike and act alike and offer more of the same.”
Currently, the taxpayers’ interests are not represented on the School Board. We have five people who think and act alike and are insensitive to the taxpayers. The last election in 2014 shows that, the three members elected were exactly alike the siting members and we have seen more of the same tax and spend operation. Since 1984 the School Board has hit the taxpayers with 11 parcel tax measures. Starting at $45 and lasting two to four years to now that they want Measure H, a new expensive $620 parcel tax for eight years. The bill to the taxpayers for Measure H, $76 million dollars to be paid in eight years only by those who live in homes in Davis. Measure H doubles the taxpayers’ bill from the current parcel taxes of $38 million in four years.
“I am not against taxes for education, in fact I voted for Proposition 30 to fund schools. I am against waste and disregard for the taxpayers. I want to be the voice of efficiency in education and of the 9,253 Davis residents who voted with me against the last parcel tax measure and those that will vote NO on Measure H in November. It is unnecessary, too much for too long. We need to have a constructive, thoughtful and realistic debate about this measure” said Jose Granda.
“If you want a different candidate, qualified, with 34 years as a teacher, well experienced in education and that cares about students’ success and taxpayer’s interests, please consider voting for me” concluded Granda asking Davis voters that agree with him to turn out and vote for him on November 8, 2016.
