Educating the whole child & addressing their basic needs.
I will work to enrich the life of the every child in collaboration with families and the greater community. We will promote a social and global consciousness that encompasses a profound respect for all humanity.
My name is Jose G. Conchas Jr. (Lupe) and I am running for the Alhambra Elementary School Governing Board.
"I am a proud product of Arizona public schools and universities. I am a graduate from the University of Arizona and currently work to end hunger and poverty across the United States and globally as a community organizer.
When I was in 3rd grade my teacher told us she was going to be furloughed because of the state budget cuts. That was 20 years ago and we still continue to be one of the lowest ranking states in investment in education. I will advocate at the state capitol for our students and teachers to be valued in our state's budget.
The Alhambra community is a diverse community and being a son of immigrant parents and grandson of farmworkers I appreciate the welcoming nature of our schools to families from all across the world. I will continue that commitment as your next governing board member.
Thank you! Si Se Puede!
