If you think there is dysfunction, then it's more of the same with the incumbents.

Jesse, thank you so much for entering the race. You seem fantastic! I can't wait to learn more about your plans. I completely agree that the School Board needs members like you: not only do you have four children in the district, two of whom are minority, but also, your legal experience will be essential to helping the School Board succeed.

I personally (!) know the commitment, thick skin, perseverance, and time it takes to run for public office. I am thrilled you made this jump, and I look forward to discussing how we can work together for positive change in Palo Alto!

It is wonderful to have Jesse Ladomirak in the race. With four children in PAUSD she is living the Covid19 distance learning school experience and in these times, that is critical to thoughtful and realistic decision making for all our community. But just being a parent in PAUSD is not enough, Jesse is bright, engaged and has the practical of experience of running a construction business through a recession and a pandemic. Thrilled to have her in the race and most important to have her voice on our School Board in an undeniably challenging times.

Jesse, I am excited to hear that you are in the race! I am thankful to have your energetic and committed voice addressing the critical area of systemic inequities in our school district, and I am certain that with your life experience you have the ability to help us navigate many other issues of importance during this unprecedented time in our history.
