I am writing to encourage voters in the Newhall School District to vote for Christy Smith for the Newhall district governing board.

There are a number of important elections on the Nov. 3 ballot and there are more than a few good people running for various boards I support.

But the seat nearest and dearest to my heart is the Newhall district board seat I will be vacating in December. Having served on the board for 12 years and worked with dozens of trustees, I can state with 100 percent conviction that Christy Smith is the best qualified person we could possibly find to serve on the board.

With Christy's talents, passion and commitment, voters can rest assured they will have selected a board member who will continue and expand on the district's great work in providing a world-class education for every child, a cutting-edge educational environment for staff and a school district that every resident can be proud to claim as one of California's top performing school districts.

Christy brings all the skills you would hope to find in a school board trustee - she is smart, knowledgeable and experienced about educational policy and instructional issues having worked at the policy level at the national and local level. She has strong leadership skills and the ability to ask probing and appropriate questions honed in her work as an academic advisor, site council member and as the founding president of the Technology Foundation.

She has developed budget expertise and has shown her passion for school board issues through her attendance at board meetings going back four years. Finally, Christy has children in both the Newhall and the Hart districts; she has "skin in the game" and knows at a personal level the meaning and impact of decisions that affect the education our children receive.

Elections matter, leadership matters and most importantly, education matters. Do your part to make sure the Newhall district continues its tradition of educational excellence by voting for Christy Smith for the Newhall School Board.
