Capo Unified Candidate Statement: Steve Lang

Challenger wants to bring business experience to restore cuts to classroom.

EDITOR'S NOTE: Patch is running each Capistrano Unified School District Board of Trustees candidate's statement on file with the county Registrar of Voters office on consecutive days. Trustee Area No. 3 covers San Clemente. Candidate Yolanda McNamara did not file a candidate’s statement.

NAME: Steve Lang

OCCUPATION: CEO/Business Owner

We need reform and new priorities at CUSD.

I will ensure precious tax dollars are directed to students and educational programs for students. I will work to restore classroom days that have been cut from the school year and programs that have been eliminated.

I appreciate our teachers’ position, as they have responsibility for our children’s education. However, “it’s only a good deal if it’s good for everybody.”

My highest priorities will be directing resources back into the classroom. As your advocate, I will support policies that promote and enhance:

Strong public education;

Maximum academic achievement;

Safe, sanitary schools for every student;

Adequate classroom supplies

Financial responsibility and lower taxes.

I have owned and operated a successful Orange County business since 1974. I’m a proven, effective, results-oriented leader.

As the CEO of a successful business – I will bring a strong work ethic, extensive business experience and common sense to CUSD.

My wife and I have three children and 10 grandchildren, all living in San Clemente.

As your trustee, I will carry out my duties and responsibilities with as much care for your family as I would my own.

Thank you very much in advance for your faith, trust and vote.

Fiscal what?? There is no money. what "precious tax dollars are you talking about?? Don't say you are going to make things better when there is no money to do it with. Why do you think class sizes went from 20 to one back to 35 to one? Because there is no money. Unless you plan to personally finance your "reform and new priorities," don't promise anything because there is no money.

I'm voting for Steve Lang for sure. Good businessman with no political favors to repay.
