Mayor Breed has important School Board decisions to make – John Trasviña would be a great choice for San Francisco School Board member

If you follow major San Francisco news, as I do along with other major California news and developments, you are aware that the San Francisco voters recently recalled three San Francisco School Board members. It is Mayor Breed’s position to now appoint three new members to the San Francisco School Board. There are a lot of related internet stories that you can read – below I have included links to two news posts.

In my view the School Board ran into difficulty because it lost sight of its primary mission to educate students on the subject matters and in a manner that will prepare and help to prepare them to be successful, productive, and critical thinking individuals and members of society as they grow and mature and throughout their lives.

John Trasviña would be a great appointment to the School Board. I cannot list all of John’s qualifications, positions held, and accomplishments. However, if you don’t know him or of him, John is a native of San Francisco and attended Lowell High School, in addition to Harvard and Stanford. He has served in many positions of executive leadership and as an attorney both locally and in Washington, D.C. He also previously served in a high executive position in the Clinton Administration (Office of Fair Housing and Opportunity) and as Dean of the University of San Francisco School of Law. John is committed to education, helping people and excellence. And he is openminded to differing views. And there is much more, but I will keep this short. John Trasviña would be a great appointment to the San Francisco School Board.

Remember, every case and situation is different. It is important to obtain and evaluate all of the evidence that is available, and to apply that evidence to the applicable standards and laws. You do need to consult with an attorney and other professionals about your particular situation. This post is not a solicitation for legal or other services inside of or outside of California, and, of course, this post only is a summary of information that changes from time to time, and does not apply to any particular situation or to your specific situation. So . . . you cannot rely on this post for your situation or as legal or other professional advice or representation.

Also note – sometimes I include links to or comments about materials from other organizations or people – if I do so, it is because I believe that the materials are worthwhile reading or viewing; however, that doesn’t mean that I don’t or might not have a different view about some or even all of the subject matter or materials, or that I necessarily agree with, or agree with everything about or relating to, that organization or person, or those materials or the subject matter.
