Jacqueline Reid Joins School Board Race
Joining Laura Capps and Wendy Sims-Moten in the race for a spot on Santa Barbara Unified School District’s Board of Trustees, Dr. Jacqueline Reid pulled her candidacy papers on July 18.
Reid, currently serving her second term as president of the Santa Barbara Education Foundation, holds advanced degrees in education from UCSB and Pepperdine University, and spent more than a decade as an elementary school teacher. “I understand the challenges that teachers and parents face,” she said in a statement, “and I plan to support our teachers so they have the necessary resources to ensure all students succeed in school and to support parent involvement to promote student achievement.”
Meanwhile, Capps, who announced in April, has been gathering endorsements, recently adding current board members Ed Heron, Pedro Paz, and Gayle Eidelson to her list of supporters, plus the Santa Barbara Democratic Central Committee and the Tri-County Labor Council.
