On May 7, 2018, the Representative Council of the Unified Association of Conejo Teachers (UACT), the union representing the classroom teachers and other certificated employees of the Conejo Valley Unified School District, voted unanimously to endorse Bill Gorback, Cindy Goldberg, and Jenny Fitzgerald for the CVUSD School Board.
The California School Employees Association is the largest classified school employees union in the United States, representing more than 240,000 school support staff throughout California.
Our Vision is the equal protection, well being and opportunity to prosper for all women.
Run for Something recruits and supports strong voices among the next generation of leaders running for office nationwide. I am excited to be part of the movement of community-centered and authentic candidates ready to lead and create positive change for our future.
"Jenny Fitzgerald is a very even minded individual with a great deal of integrity. Having her as a member of our school board means that we would be represented by someone who listens, and listens thoroughly, to the needs and concerns of our community and can make balanced decisions for us and with us. She is a trusted member of THIS community, an active and caring parent of not only her children but those whose families she would represent, and she has continually made a true effort to understand our educational system, the goals and the impact it has in graduating its students."
- Meghan Turner (CVUSD Parent)
"Jenny has both the enthusiasm and qualifications to be an excellent school board member. She understands the law and will bring good governance back to our district. Jenny is smart, educated and does her homework on all issues. She will represent the parents and students well."
- Peggy Buckles (Former CVUSD Board Member)
"As a recent graduate from Westlake High School, I was a direct witness to the actions of the current CVUSD Board of Education. It is deeply flawed as some of its members refused to listen to the opinions of teachers and students. Jenny Fitzgerald will provide a much needed change for the Board as she has already reached out students from various high schools to understand the students' perspective on what needs to changed. I cannot wait to see her advocating for all of us as a member of the Board come November!!"
- Ritika Iyer (Recent CVUSD Graduate)
"I support Jenny's candidacy for several reasons: 1) Her credentials are impeccable. She is an attorney who has educational experience. Wouldn't that be refreshing for the CVUSD? 2) She is articulate and is a fabulous writer and speaker. As an English teacher, I can appreciate that these are the very skills we teach in the CVUSD. 3) She is personable and compassionate. Perhaps I should have listed this first as these are two qualities we desperately need on our board. 4) She is an energetic mother with children in this district. She is a vested stakeholder."
- Lora Novak (WHS English Dept. Chair and teacher)
"I support Jenny because she is fighting for transparent good governance for the benefit of all students in our community."
- Cindy Mayling (CVUSD Parent and DAC Executive Board, Vice-Chair)
"I support Jenny Fitzgerald for CVUSD School Board because she PUTS STUDENTS, TEACHERS, and PARENTS FIRST! We want to keep our AWARD WINNING SCHOOLS WHO PREPARE OUR STUDENTS FOR GREAT FUTURES!"
- Narda Fargotstein (CVUSD community member)
"Fitzgerald's intellect, legal acumen and ethics will help our board to function responsibly, benefiting all students."
- Jill and Mike Magnante (Teachers and CVUSD community members)
