Our children deserve the best. We need to find a way to fully fund education,
relieve the burden of overcrowding and compensate our teachers for the
great work, time, effort and passion they bring to the classroom. Inclusive
education is a right in this country and we need to treat it as such.
Bottlenecks, traffic and overcrowding plague the district as more and more
housing and development goes up. We keep building, but we don't look at how
to improve our transportation options to handle the increased population. We
need to take a smart look at safe, accessible and alternative transportation
methods (buses, rail, new transportation technologies) and look at how we can
alleviate the traffic burden. To attract investment and create jobs, we have to
address these issues.
