Elected five years ago to the Vacaville Unified board, Horace “Whit” Whitman has come to believe that “I can’t please everyone.”
Firm in his views that “I’ve done a good job,” the retired U.S. Air Force and commercial airline pilot wants voters to re-elect him for his willingness “to talk to people and get the facts” before making a decision.
“I try to get answers for people,” said Whitman, 71, a longtime public school advocate whose two adult children attended district schools, with a third a junior at Vacaville High. “I try to be open and transparent.”
