Gina is just like another Gloria won’t fix any of the problems the district has I believe we need to go for an external search

Ms. Sudaria is a suitable candidate for Superintendent of Ravenswood City School District. She has spent decades toiling in service to the families of this community. She understands the culture, the challenges, the educational disadvantage, and, most importantly, the potential for change here. We can save 18 months of wait time for change that will be frittered away with another search and a year of a new Superintendent learning Ravenswood.

Former Superintendent Gloria Hernandez-Goff never really understood the community. She foolishly wasted her opportunity to be a change agent by jumping onto the most recently touted, shiny solution without study or critical analysis. She abused the initial good will extended by the community at large by adhering to political allies and neglecting the majority who are focused on children.

That's not a mistake Sudaria will make.

please do not support Gina she is a bad apple just like Gloria was she is following Gloria's foot steps she has given raises to her supporters instead of getting more custodians and kitchen people where kids would benefit from
and Gina is not supporting the kids which to her come second what a shame that
you people that are in support of this lady only see one side of her shame on you. we are going in the same direction as when Gloria was a superintendent.
we need new blood do an external search so we can get someone with the experience and not a trial and error person.
