Cesar is supported by teachers, parents, students, and grassroots organizations.

Eduardo Lara

 

“Cesar’s approach toward leadership is grounded in community and social justice. As a high school teacher, he is also grounded in rich experiences informed by current K-12 education issues. That type of perspective is needed on our school board. I am proud to endorse Cesar Armendariz for the Long Beach School Board.”

— Dr. Eduardo Lara

CSULB Professor and former LBUSD candidate

 “Cesar Armendariz, the only current public school teacher running, is more involved with the community and seems more grounded in how the school board works…Armendariz is best qualified for election to theLBUSD’s 3 seat.”

— The Press-Telegram Editorial Board
