We're with Patricia.

We need a representative on the School Board who will fight for our children and our local schools. That's why the Los Angeles County Democratic Party, representing 2.8 million Democrats across LA, unanimously supports Patricia Castellanos. So do our local classroom teachers, counselors, principals, classroom aides, nurses, custodians, cafeteria workers, school bus drivers, and many others – who see up close what works, and what doesn’t.

President, LAUSD School Board

I’ve had the honor of serving our students and families throughout LAUSD for the entirety of my 53 year career. I know that our communities need a leader with a proven track record of bringing people together from all walks of life to get things done. That’s why Patricia Castellanos is the clear choice to represent our communities.
