? 1. What do you see as the role of a school board trustee?

Answer from Christopher Wecks:

An NUSD trustee works with fellow board members to see to it that school management, policy and vision are in alignment. A trustee adopts budgets, hires and holds accountable the superintendent to the responsibility of managing the school district the proper way, and takes unified action on matters of stakeholder concern. A trustee also serves as the critical link to you, the voter, and the school system.

Responses to questions asked of each candidate are reproduced as submitted to the League.  Candidates' statements are presented as submitted. References to opponents are not permitted.

The order of the candidates is random and changes daily. Candidates who did not respond are not listed on this page.
