To the Editor:

About a year ago, while doing volunteer work with Catholic Community Services in its effort to reopen the Cat Cavazos Center, I had the pleasure of meeting Levi Herrera-Lopez.

More recently, I was pleased to learn Levi is running for the Zone 5 position on the Salem-Keizer School Board. Levi’s commitment to public education is unparalleled. Moreover, Levi’s a graduate of the district’s school system, and for 15 years Levi has lived in Zone 5 (which sets him apart from some candidates who, oddly enough, have lived only a few days in the zone they hope to represent). If you live in the Salem-Keizer School District, I urge you to vote for Levi Herrera-Lopez for school board.
