I’m sure many of you are aware that the elections for the new California Governor are soon to take place. Without going on a political rant, I just want to say that this is a critical time for this state, in choosing the correct political candidate that will make a change in this state’s economic and political crisis.
The past few years have been trying times for both this state and country. Especially for education. Last week, most of the Grossmont Union High School District staff stood outside their schools protesting budget cuts. These cuts harshly effect both the students and staff. Teachers will suffer pay and health care benefit decreases, which will result in larger class sizes for students.
Overall, we are in desperate need of a new state leader. One who can help balance the budget, decrease the state’s deficit, and restore the funding needed by education.
In addition to California’s Governor election, Valhalla will be having its ASB executive, class officer, and HOK elections within the next few weeks. I plan on running for Executive President. Nothing is official yet, but I would greatly appreciate all the support I can get.
For those of you who can vote, help make a change for this state’s future, because we are in desperate need of revival. When time permits, go out and vote.
