If you live in Santa Clara County, California, I urge you to re-elect Claudia Rossi to the County Board of Education.

Her opponent has tweeted his support for Sheriff Joe Arpaio and other Trump policies. He recently received $7,000 from a “Reform” campaign funding group.

Claudia Rossi is a strong advocate for public schools.

Last May, Rossi asked questions about the operations of a charter school that was up for renewal. As a county trustee, it is her job to ask questions. The CEO of the charter school threatened her with a defamation lawsuit, and the ACLU stepped in to defend Rossi’s right to ask questions.

California needs more trustees with Claudia Rossi’s integrity and courage. It does need another rubber-stamp for the charter lobby.

Please vote for Claudia Rossi.
