I am supporting Laura Chardiet for the Culver City Board of Education. I have known Laura for over 10 years, both through our children who went to Culver City preschool together and who currently attend Culver High, as well as through her hundreds of hours volunteering for our Culver City Schools. I have served with her on the Board of Education’s Community Budget Advisory Committee, and we worked together in the Culver City Middle School’s Snack Bar. I know what Laura accomplished as PTA president of La Ballona and through her leadership of the Council PTA. Laura has always been a tireless advocate for our kids and schools.
As past Chair of the Culver City Chamber of Commerce I was delighted when the Chamber, in its’ first ever endorsement for a candidate for the School Board, chose Laura Chardiet and Scott Zeidman. Laura brings to the Board an Educator who is not only familiar with the workings of the classroom (she is a former teacher), but also the complexities of managing a multi-million dollar school budget (she administers a $15 million program for LAUSD). Laura Chardiet is a smart, insightful, resourceful, creative problem solver, qualities which are especially important for a school board member.
I am asking all my friends, colleagues, and fellow Culver City residents to Vote For Laura!
