Santa Cruz County Supervisorial candidate Zach Friend announced the support of current and former Santa Cruz County education leaders.
“I am honored to have such strong support from the leaders throughout our county’s education system,” said Zach Friend. “These individuals work everyday to ensure our children have the tools they need to become successful, and I’m committed to becoming an active partner with them in the years to come.”
They include Cabrillo College Board trustees Susan True and Katy Stone-Bloom; county Office of Education trustees Jack Dilles and Bud Winslow; Pajaro Valley Unified School District members Kim De Serpa and Doug Keegan and President Leslie DeRose; Soquel Union Elementary School District trustees Judy McGooden and Sandra Wallace and President Ted Donnelly; Santa Cruz City Schools trustee John Collins; and San Lorenzo Valley Unified School District trustee Kathy Ritchie.
The educational community endorsements follow endorsements from current 2nd District Supervisor Ellen Pirie, Sheriff Phil Wowak and dozens of community and elected leaders.
