I have to say that I am already extremely impressed with Stephanie Fitch. It’s not everyday that School Board candidates go door to door and introduce themselves in their community. She was raised in EPA, lives in EPA, went to PAUSD, has a Stanford education, and has the right balance and experience for what our community needs on its school board.
She strikes me as the kind of candidate that will work to make sure our parcel taxes don’t go to waste and that it gets spent on improving the educational experience in our community. She’s definitely got our votes.

I find the enthusiasm for the first time Ravenswood candidates to be interesting. Most do not regularly, if ever, attend Board meetings. That doesn't show me any interest. One sends her kids to private school. Two grew up here but never attended local schools. So I wonder, where are they getting their information that qualifies them to criticize the Board and Administration? One candidate is very beholding to Facebook. I don't want theZuckerbergs, who oppose public school education, to hold sway over our school board. If these candidates are elected we might see Menlo Park taking more bites out of us. If they are getting their information from Facebook and blogs, we are all in deep Doo Doo.
