Former CCUSD Members Support Silbiger
October 31, 2013
This week, Stew Bubar became the latest former CCUSD School Board member to support Karlo Silbiger's campaign for School Board.
Bubar joins current Board member Patricia Siever and Nancy Goldberg and former Board members Dr. Wanda Bougarides, Madeline Ehrlich, Steve Gourley, Barbara Honig, Dr. Bob Knopf, Steven Schwartz and Marla Wolkowitz in supporting Silbiger's campaign.
Silbiger, who is finishing his first term as a School Board member, is a teacher who has taught in Culver City's Summer Program and has degrees in Education from Boston University and Harvard University.
If reelected, Silbiger plans to work on the District's processes for hiring consultants, to rein in the numbers of contracts and require fiscally responsible bidding, as well as find ways to support our teachers and staff, who currently are among the lowest paid in Los Angeles County.
Ms. Honig notes, "Karlo has championed greater transparency and more community involvement in the District by pushing for improved information on the District website and fostering citizen advisory committees to the Board (including the Budget Committee and Environmental Sustainability Committee). These important measures make the Board and District more accountable to citizens and help ensure critical community support for future District initiatives."
