Smart Voter Political Philosophy for George J. Giokaris

Candidate for
Governing Board Member; Whittier Union High School District

This information is provided by the candidate

It would be an honor and a privilege to serve as your Board Member in the Whittier Union High School District. I have the experience, dedication, and skills to provide effective leadership.

As a lifetime resident of Whittier (except for the months away at college), I have dedicated my entire 29-year professional career to high quality education for all children in safe schools. During that time I have served as a high school teacher, coach and principal, and now as the deputy superintendent of a high school district and university professor. I have worked for many years to acquire the skills and knowledge needed to effectively meet the goal of improving all students' achievement.

I believe in accountability and have a successful track record of managing school and district budgets, and facility improvement projects for 20 years. During California's budget crisis and into the future, I can assure you that your tax dollars will be used efficiently to provide a high quality education for our students and for well-maintained facilities.

As an education professional, it's been an honor and a great source of satisfaction to improve student performance, enhance career preparation, integrate technology, and expand academic and co-curricular opportunities for all students. I look forward to continue using team and consensus building to strengthen and develop partnerships with all community members to improve our schools for the future.

Please join me in ensuring that high quality education and accountability remain central to the District's mission. I ask for your support and your vote. Thank you.
