My name is John Craig and I am running for one of the open positions on the Byron Union School Board. I have lived in the area for over eight years, and have had two children go through the Byron district and one currently attending Discovery Bay Elementary. I am married and manage a tire facility in Stockton.
I believe school uniforms would benefit the district and students, noting that the Antioch school district will switch to uniforms in January 2011. I would like to see the schools return more to teaching and spend less time babysitting. The goal is to have parents become more involved in their children’s school work and activities. We can continue to improve our schools together, even with looming budget constraints.
Having met all of the candidates, everyone of them are good, capable people who would do their best for what is right for the district. However, I would appreciate your support and vote for one of the open positions, and vow to do my best for your children.
John Craig, Discovery Bay
