Letters: Melissa Moreno ideally qualified

Support Local Journalism


I am writing to express my strong support of Melissa Moreno for the position of Yolo County Board of Education Trustee. The County Board of Education provides support for programs that serve our most vulnerable youth. Melissa’s combined life experience, community service, academic training, and professional experience make her ideally qualified for this position. For the past eight years I have served as the Yolo County Board of Education Trustee for Area 2, the position Melissa now seeks. During a portion of this time, I also served on the California School Boards Association Delegate Assembly and the California County Boards of Education Board of Directors. This service has allowed me to see firsthand the requirements, challenges, and opportunities involved in the important work of county offices of education and county boards of education, locally and throughout California. Melissa has herself participated in the programs for which a county office of education and board of education are responsible, including Head Start, migrant education, and English Language Learners. She then went on to earn a Ph.D. in Education and to devote herself to community service, education, and leadership. In addition to being extremely well qualified to handle a trustee’s policy, appeal hearing and budgetary responsibilities, Melissa will be an effective, compassionate, and conscientious advocate for the youth served, and a model of achievement. Please join me and many educational and community leaders in voting for Melissa Moreno for Yolo County Board of Education Trustee on November 6th. Bill Owens]]>
