On November 6, 2018, many school districts across California will have Board trustee vacancies on local election ballots. The Fairfield-Suisun Unified School District (FSUSD) will have positions open for election in the following Trustee Areas: Area 4, Area 5, and Area 7.
This election of ordinary citizens to a board that oversees the public education of our community’s youth is an important example of a democratic approach to local control. After all, it is the Governing Board, elected by the people, who are entrusted with the lives of our children and their future in our society. Serving as a trustee is no small task, yet it promises big contributions.
