Hews Media Group-Community Newspaper is endorsing the four incumbents in next Tuesday’s election for the Norwalk-La Mirada Unified School District Board of Education.
While we appreciate the spirited and even hard fought campaign that has been waged by the challengers in this campaign, we don’t think voters should “throw the baby out with the bath water” in this particular campaign.
The four incumbents are not guaranteed an easy time at the ballot box next week. Far from it. This campaign is going to be close in our opinion, thanks to passionate campaigns being waged by challengers Simon Limon, Sean Regan, and Mark Owen White.
Limon, Regan and White make some valid points in their campaigns, but overall Norwalk-La Mirada Unified School District is on the rise, and moving forward in many positive areas.
Board members Ed Hengler, Margarita Rios, Ana Valencia, and Darryl Adams have been strong board members who do not all walk “lock step” together all of the time.
We like openness and transparency in our schools and at city halls.
We hope that WHOEVER gets elected, that the new school board can FINALLY get these meetings broadcasted LIVE to the community via cable television, the internet, and by other advanced modern platforms.
Campaigns are hard. They take a huge effort and commitment from anyone who decides to enter the “fray,” and this campaign has been a tough battle.
In the end, we are sticking with the Hengler, Rios, Valencia and Adams, and so should the voters.
