Both of the candidates running in the November 8, 2022, general election for Phoenix Union High School District Governing Board Ward 2 in Arizona — Alan Aversa and Signa Oliver — completed Ballotpedia’s Candidate Connection survey. These survey responses allow voters to hear directly from candidates about what motivates them to run for office.
According to the Phoenix Union website, the Governing Board’s mission includes the “responsibility to identify District needs, to be responsive to those needs, and to plan short and long-range strategies to meet them.”
Here are excerpts from candidates’ responses to the question: What are the main points you want voters to remember about your goals for your time in office?
- “Parents are children’s primary educators.”
- “Schools help parents.”
- “Preparing the future generation”
- “Public Schools need to be overfunded to repair the damage of years of underfunding to provide the students, educators and administrators with the resource necessary for a quality public education.”
- “Restorative justice and equity for all students is imperative to provide an enriching public school education experience that will guide them to be the best version of themselves as adults.”
- “Public school safety is a must to ensure all students, faculty and staff can experience a safe environment to learn, thrive and grow.”
