Altieri, Sexton, and Meek — the clear choice

During my 25 years in Nevada County education, I worked closely with all five of the candidates running for the Nevada County Board of Education. And believe me, Bob Altieri, Shelly Sexton and Larry Meek are the right choice, the only choice for the three available seats.

They will bring to the board tremendous experience, expertise, moral integrity, and commitment to our students. They also possess the people and leadership skills needed to heal the feeling of divisiveness and political maneuvering created by their two opponents, Marianne Slade-Troutman and Jack Meeks.

Altieri, Sexton, and Meek all have extensive budget experience and know how to spend educational dollars wisely. Bob is a local businessman and holds an MBA degree. Larry is the former principal of Nevada Union High School and has also served in district office administrative positions. Shelly was a California Teacher of the Year and went on to become an elementary school principal and a special education administrator.

As Mike Bratton said, “This is a dream team.” Please join me, and virtually everyone I know, in voting for Bob Altieri, Shelly Sexton, and Larry Meek for the Nevada County Board of Education.
