Support for Jorge Rodriguez

As a citizen, voter and believer that competition helps identify the best candidate, I thank all those committed enough to enter the race for GCISD trustee. As a Grapevine resident and substitute teacher with two school age students, I have seen many positive changes occur in our school district. Current school board president Jorge Rodriguez has contributed creative leadership, accountability, strategic insights, a willingness to listen to citizens, solid financial oversight, personal time and much more to bring about these improvements. Examples include increased college enrollment (30 percent) and advance course participation (20%), highest state financial rating, on line and technical coursework options, minority parent participation program and assistance in employee survey design. Certainly others have contributed, but nothing happens without leadership. I invite you to examine Jorge's record and make sure you get to the polls. Best of luck to all candidates.

John Rath, Grapevine
