Smart Voter Official Statement for Terilyn Finders

Candidate for
Governing Board Member; Las Virgenes Unified School District

This is a copy of information submitted to elections officials by the candidate

As we face the demands of the 21st century - from technology-driven lifestyles and careers, to environmental and cultural concerns - we all recognize that investing in our youngest citizens today is our country's greatest hope for tomorrow.

True democracy stands on excellent public education; informed, capable, contributing citizens are cultivated through the strongest possible education, and I believe that the strongest possible education is a product of great partnerships between the full community -- parents, business and political leaders -- and schools.

I am most proud of these partnership accomplishments:

Local Partners: Helped create and secure the first-ever plan whereby our four cities can contribute support to a single district focus -- technology. With the cities' support, the District will deliver staffing support ensuring optimal impact for our technology investments.

Partners in Sacramento: The Governor signed into law legislation that I helped create establishing the Autism Information and Training Center, ensuring the state supports schools in delivering services to the growing population of children with autism.

There is more to do, and I am willing to do it. I ask for your support so I can continue working for our children -- our future.

Thank you.
