Benicia School Board endorsements

By Roger Straw, October 25, 2018

We need major change on Benicia’s School Board – vote for these progressive hearts and minds

The Benicia Independent is pleased to endorse Adrean Hayashi, Gethsemane Moss and Sheri Zada for Benicia School Board Trustee.

It was a hard choice – candidate Mark Maselli is also deserving, but we can only vote for three.  All will bring a fresh perspective with support for our teachers and a critique of recent discord between teachers and the current administration.  (I will recommend against voting for the incumbent Diane Ferrucci – time for a change!)

This 2018 election is a perfect time for another “year of the woman,” so all else being equal, I’ll go with Hayashi, Moss and Zada.
