Stacy Jones would be a value asset to the school board. She has first hand knowledge of the schools in the district and their workings. I hope the people in the district vote for her and take advantage of her expertise.

So happy to hear that Stacey Jones will be putting Laurel "on the map." It has been a long time since a Laurel parent has been on the school board. Her connection with the Laurel community and because she is smart, grounded, and thoughtful will be great assets to the district.

It's time for a change. Hoping for more candidates so that the Menlo Park board can have a fresh change. It's been incredibly stressful and disheartening working in the district for the past few years. The only way that will change is to remove long term members from the school board.

Thank you Time for Change! It's time for Ghysels to go and the only way to make that happen is to get new members on the school board.
