**This post has been modified. When I originally posted this I inadvertently left of Ed Brown. It has also been brought to my attention that the deadline doesn't close until 8/15/12
The field of candidates is set for the Beaumont Unified School Board election.
Here is the field:
Ed Brown - A father of two Beaumont Unified students and a local business owner
Lloyd White - Me, a father of two Beaumont Unified students
Gunnar Hardy - A recent graduate of Beaumont High School
David Sanchez - Former President of Beaumont Unified School Board and current teacher for Banning Unified School District
Steve Hovey - Former Assistant Superintendent of Personnel for Beaumont Unified and the current Chief Personnel Officer for the Riverside County Office of Education
Wayne Hackney - Incumbent Beaumont Unified Board Member and former BUSD administrator
There is a clear choice. Keeping the public school culture that exists in our schools or changing the direction of our administration and taking back some parental control in the decisions that shape our kids' future.
