SUPPORT THIS INDEPENDENT JOURNALISM
The article you’re about to read is from our reporters doing their important work — investigating, researching, and writing their stories. We want to provide informative and inspirational stories that connect you to the people, issues and opportunities within our community. Journalism requires lots of resources. Today, our business model has been interrupted by the pandemic; the vast majority of our advertisers’ businesses have been impacted. That’s why the SC Times is now turning to you for financial support. Learn more about our new Insider’s program here. Thank you.
SHERINE SMITH, San Clemente
My husband and I have lived in San Clemente for more than 30 years. We wholeheartedly support Measure H.
I am a retired educator who had a long career in Capistrano Unified School District, starting as a teacher. I also served as a middle school principal, high school principal, and deputy superintendent of education in Capistrano Unified and was later hired as the superintendent of Laguna Beach Unified School District.
Public education is an investment in our students, our communities, our state, and our nation. Great schools are an integral part of great communities, and San Clemente schools reflect our community.
We need Measure H to ensure our children have the same high-quality learning environment as children in other communities, including upgraded classrooms, science labs, and technology.
Join me in voting for Measure H. Our kids deserve it.
