Yvette Romero, Granite District 6
As an educator and social worker, I have been on the front line of answering calls for help from students and the broader community. I love serving the community, but the last two years have been hard, especially for residents of the West Side. Our community has experienced significant instability, losses, and trauma. As a person with expertise in mental health and trauma, I know we will experience the effects of COVID for years to come. More than ever, we need someone who has lived the same challenges faced by our students and who understands the importance of making decisions that are thoughtful and that prioritize the wellbeing of our students, teachers, and school personnel. Together, we can build a future that our kids can be proud of.
