Smart Voter Political Philosophy for Judith A. "Judy" Ahrens

Candidate for
Board Member; Westminster School District

This information is provided by the candidate

Every student deserves a quality education emphasizing reading, writing, proper grammar, correct spelling, traditional math, and U.S. history.

As your board member, I will work to:

Emphasize the need of teaching and instilling PATRIOTISM in EACH student

Implement strong phonics-based reading programs

Support a curriculum that emphasizes "the basics"

Increase academic time in the classroom

Challenge the federally funded ineffective programs currently implemented

Provide teachers with the necessary materials, authority, and respect deserved

Truly empower parents in the decision making process

Have Westminster School Board meetings televised

Oppose anti-family bills AB537, AB1785, and AB1931
My leadership role in my community has included PTA, school site council, Westminster Community Advisory Group and Westminster Historical Society docent.

As an educator tutoring children, I've been able to witness first hand students handicapped by the inadequate educational foundation given in our schools. This sober reality fuels my passion to raise the expectation of each school, parent, and student. We CAN prepare our children to meet the demands of a competitive world with character, dignity, and self-reliance.


THIRD on the ballot, FIRST in public education!
