Voter Guide for November 8, 2016
Presidential General Election
WASHINGTON UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT, GOVERNING BOARD MEMBER, VOTE FOR 3
Jackie Thu-Huong Wong
WASHINGTON UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT
GOVERNING BOARD MEMBER
Occupation: Children's Advocate
My experience as a teacher, school social worker, district administrator
and senior advisor to former Senate President Darrell Steinberg has
prepared me to serve, but it's my love for our two daughters – students
in Washington Unified schools – that compels me to volunteer to help
our community and run for our school board.
Our schools are the foundation of West Sacramento and provide a safe
place for our kids to learn and develop. They deserve experienced and
passionate management, with a parent's perspective.
I have dedicated my life to fighting for high quality education. I believe
that by working together, with parents, teachers, caregivers and
students, that the school board can build stronger schools.
We need to focus on pre-Kindergarten, college readiness and career
programs, and to support counseling, nutrition and afterschool
programs, that give our children the building blocks for their future.
My parents brought me to this country as a refugee child from Vietnam.
My first language was not English, but hard work and good quality
schools helped me graduate college and find a good job. I'd like to
“pay this forward” and help our next generation. I ask for your support,
trust and vote for school board.
/s/ Jacqueline Wong
