Letter: Support Smith, Zavala-Ortega


I encourage those living in Vancouver Public Schools’ boundaries to vote for Wendy Smith and Sandra Zavala-Ortega. Smith, the longest-serving member of the board after just one term, provides history and the perspective of a parent and teacher. Zavala-Ortega, our newest board member, provides the indispensable view of a parent, Latina and former employee who provided services to students most in need.

COVID-19 sent our schools into crisis mode. These women have worked tirelessly to help us through, and their leadership will help VPS rebuild stronger.

Losing either of these amazing women would weaken our school board and our schools. Please vote.
