We write to urge your support for Vicente R. Cruz IIís campaign for Oakland Unified School District 3 Board Member. We strongly believe Vicente has the right balance of experience and ideas that it will take to address the crisis in our education system.
There are constant cuts in education while our Federal budget balloons into the trillions. Clearly, it is up to us as individuals to demand funding, improve the quality of education for our children, and to improve our community overall.
Vicente will bring a high level of energy, insight, and determination, as he has already shown while teaching Social Justice and sports since 1997. If elected, Vicente would be the first Oakland Green party member to serve as School Board Member of peoples District 3.
Vicente's love for the city of Oakland has led him to be a strong community activist, earning him the respect of his peers and dread of a system that oppresses the many. While working on the Oakland Green Party Outreach Committee, he received high marks for active listening skills, diverse education ideas, and a pro-rights attitude.
With 12 years of experience working with the youth of our community, both as youth basketball coach and community program coordinator, the past 12 years, Vicente is well connected with the true needs of our children. With a more rational approach to education improvement, and your support, Vicente will undoubtedly make the difference.
We hope you will join us in his campaign with a contribution of a $99.99 (max per donation). However, whatever you are willing to contribute would be much appreciated.
Thank you so much for your consideration.
Be well, hope we can count on your vote
Vicente R. Cruz II
Candidate OUSD Board District 3
