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 and advance course participation, the highest state financial rating, online 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.
