Hey All! Elections are right around the corner, and I want to write a quick letter of commendation for Liza Normandy, current SSFUSD school board vice president. Well, I have gotten to know this woman for a few years now, through many a superintendent, and I cannot say enough great things about her. As you know, our school system here in South City is on the rise, improving yearly. It was in bad shape just a couple years ago with changing superintendents and all sorts of emergency, closed board hearings in session. Now, it is stable with a solid superintendent, Alejandro Hogan. Anyway, Ms. Normandy continually works with her co-councilmembers and superintendent to improve the atmosphere our kids learn in and our teachers teach in, but it isn't easy! It's long hours and hard work to create those smiles and happy neurons! She doesn't complain too much; she does't quit; and now, she is ready for the next step. And, that is to lead our great city--South City. I know she can do it. She has the people skills. Hey, she can deal with me, and how many people can say that? Anyone who knows me knows that I am a pretty high maintenance dad...for any school employee...even for Ms. Normandy, and she has built my trust with good, old-fashioned people skills and honesty and follow through!
