It’s been an honor to serve as your chapter president these last four years, and it was a real treat to cap things off with a fun holiday party and meet and greet with our awesome new School Board and Board of Supervisors members last night.As I step down, I want to take a minute to appreciate our hardworking leaders, members, and activists who serve the kids of San Francisco day in and day out. Whether you keep our schools clean and safe, organize internal operations, directly serve families in our school offices, make sure our kids don’t go hungry, or keep the public informed and engaged at our radio station, I am proud to stand beside you and be part of your union.

I’m also excited to see what comes next. In my role as a steward, I’ll be working on special projects and helping out members with day-to-day worksite issues under the leadership of Anthony Mills, our Chief Steward. Anthony is a fierce advocate for a fair and equitable workplace.

Rafael Picazo will be steering the ship this year, applying the wisdom of his 3 decades of SFUSD experience and leadership to the needs of our members. I have had the pleasure of working with Rafael on the leadership team since I was elected chapter president, and his deep knowledge of District operations has been immensely helpful to the work we’ve done.

I’m also pleased to report that Lorraine Bowser will continue to represent us on the SEIU 1021 Executive Board and be a champion there for the needs of schools workers. Lorraine has been fighting the good fight for our cafeteria workers and others as a member of the bargaining team for 25 taon.

We are lucky to have such strong leaders to support the work of our members. I hope you will consider stepping up at your worksite in the coming year to help us build our support network across the District. We’ll have officer and bargaining team elections later this year, and we’ll be putting together action teams for several special projects. There’s never been a better time to get involved and help lead the fight!

Thank you for your support, hard work, and membership these last four years. I am proud to have had the opportunity to serve. Here’s to a bright future!
