I emailed the Pomona Superintendent of Schools to offer her some space on the blog for Measure PS. Here's what she had to say:
"This is just a note of thanks to Goddess of Pomona and your contributors for your ongoing support of the Pomona community and Pomona Unified School District. We’ve been working hard to transform public education here, and we know it’s crucial to the renaissance of our city. Measure PS, which is on the November 4 ballot, is part of our effort to help improve our city as a whole by improving our schools. I can’t ask you to vote one way or the other on it, but I can ask you to be sure and vote on it. It will be near the bottom of your ballot. Thanks again!
Dr. Thelma Meléndez de Santa Ana
P.S. by G of P: Did you know that "Dr. T" has her own blog? I wondered how common it was for a superintendent to have a blog, so I googled "superintendent" + "blog." Dr. T's blog was on the second page of hits! And when I googled "children's librarian" + "blog," Miss Lois' blog turned up on the third page of hits. And the fact that Pomona has both a children's librarian blog AND a superintendent's blog, well WOW!
P.S.S. As if that were not enough, Pomona has another spanking new blog, whose writer insists it's not quite ready for primetime, so stay tuned.
