CCB for BCSD School Board Area 3






My name is Chris Cruz-Boone and I am running for Bakersfield City School Board Trustee Area 3 because I know that I can be an effective advocate for my children and the families in my community. I believe that public education provides hope and my platform includes advocating for social justice, arts and higher education.  

As a product of Bakersfield City School District I owe this community so much. It is hard to believe when you are small that your life will ever be bigger than the one-room apartment you live in. Most of my childhood my father was in jail and my single mother balanced work, life and two rambunctious twin girls. I realized my life could be bigger because the people that make Bakersfield City Schools great kept providing me opportunities: Ms. Trainer my kindergarten teacher gave me my first chapter book; Ms. Arslan my drama teacher cast me as Snow White, and Mr. Luff, an active parent volunteer taught me the importance of contributing toward the community to create a better place to live for all citizens. My love for BCSD runs deep because of the people in the district who fiercely loved me as a child. Decades later I am a mother, a first-generation college graduate with two graduate degrees including a Doctorate in Education, and I want to be your area three school board trustee.  As a trustee, I will devote myself to our children and preserve the district that gave me my world.

I am a political newcomer and this campaign is funded by the goodwill of community supporters.  Please help the campaign reach our goals.  Thank you for your consideration.
