Thank you Camille for being willing to run again.

Camille is the one candidate I feel I know the most about. The fact that she has already held two terms means that we know her views on many things and this should make it easy, but then again I get the impression that she is only running again to give us an election rather than another shoe in.

If this is the case and she is reluctantly running, I thank her for doing that as giving us a choice is very valuable. I don't think she should be criticized for running again as the alternative of having no election would not be a good thing for PAUSD.

I do think it is time for new blood on the board and we will be getting it, but the question as far as I can see is do we want one new face or two new faces on the board. At least one of the incumbents will be elected, so which one is likely to balance the board out best? We know from the past some of Camille's thoughts on the hot topics and how she has voted.

Editor, thanks for posting. after watching them all and I have to say Melissa, Camille, and Ken are better than Heidi at least on video. Why did you let Heidi get away with not answering questions when you grilled Melissa?
