Advocate group endorses Altieri, Sexton and Meek for Nevada County Board of Education

The California Charter School Association Advocates — California’s largest organization advocating for charter schools — announced Friday that it is endorsing Bob Altieri, Shelly Sexton and Larry Meek in the November race for the Nevada County Board of Education.

“We firmly believe that Bob Altieri, Shelly Sexton and Larry Meek are the best candidates to advocate for Nevada County parents and their children in Nevada County, which is home to many great charter schools,” stated Gary Borden, Executive Director of CCSA Advocates.

Sexton said, “Along with Bob and Larry, I am very pleased to have received the endorsement of CCSA Advocates. We are proud to join this important statewide organization in advocating for parent choice and high-quality education for all students.”

Gina Plate, Senior Advisor of Special Education at the California Charter Schools Association, the sister organization of CCSA Advocates, said, “Shelly has been a strong supporter of high-quality educational options and parent choice for all at both the local and state level. She has demonstrated herself to be a leader who is committed to creating innovative partnerships that benefit all students in both charter and traditional district settings.”

Meek and Altieri also expressed their support for parent choice in education; both candidates’ experience in charter education contributed to CCSA Advocates’ endorsement, the release said.

Borden added, “This was an easy decision for us. After studying the qualifications of Altieri, Sexton and Meek, it was very apparent that they are the strongest candidates for the Nevada County Board of Education.”
