While there are many candidates running for school board this year, please do not get distracted by one-issue candidates. A school district leader must be an expert in budgeting, contract negotiations, tax structure, legal matters affecting the school district, and must also have the trust of the community. Someone supervising qualified staff must also be highly educated and have no personal financial interest in the district.
Angel Valentin has all these qualities and is a leader we have trusted for years. We, the College Democrats of New Jersey, are proud to endorse Angel Valentin for Jersey City Board of Education. He understands from his own child’s success and being on the Jersey City School Board for twelve years that we must protect our public schools.
Angel is experienced, dedicated, and has no personal interest for the district because he truly understands education matters, as do our previous endorsees, Sudhan Thomas and Gina Verdibello of the Education Matters Team.
Sincerely, John Bingham- President
Demetrius M. Terry- Executive Vice President
Anthony Antonini- Membership Director
Mohamed Asker- Communications Director
Karlito A. Almeda- Treasurer
