Why I’m Voting for X” Series

This en­try is part 1 of 1 in the se­ries Why I’m Voting for X 2016


I am go­ing to try a fea­ture so oth­ers can state why they would like to vote for a par­tic­u­lar can­di­date. I will then post the state­ments as part of a se­ries of posts. Here are the rules:

  1. Only can­di­dates for the West Contra Costa Unified School District Board of Education (WCCUSD BOE) or Contra Costa County Board of Education (CCC BOE) Area 1
  2. Letter-to-the-ed­i­tor length of 200 words or less as mea­sured by this site: https://wordcounter.net/
  3. Single au­thor who must be able to vote for the can­di­date
  4. The au­thor in­cludes their name, city or other lo­cal­ity, and a de­scrip­tion of them­selves of 8 words or less
  5. Please no rel­a­tives or cam­paign mem­bers (People will be able to tell if the state­ment is too con­trived.)
  6. Talk about your can­di­date not the other can­di­dates
  7. No ob­scen­ity or li­bel
  8. No new state­ment pub­lished for a par­tic­u­lar can­di­date un­til the other can­di­dates for the race have state­ments sub­mit­ted for that round
  9. The ti­tle of the post will sim­ply fit this for­mula: “Why I’m Voting for X” where X is the can­di­date name (I’ll add the po­si­tion as the first line.)

E-mail state­ments with au­thor and can­di­date info to charley.cowens+statements@gmail.com
