Calaveras County Board of Education Seeking District 4 Trustee

Angels Camp, CA...Calaveras county has a rich history in education. Members of the community are dedicated to serving the educational needs of the students in Calaveras. The Calaveras County Board of Education (CCBE) is seeking a board member to represent District 4. District 4 currently includes the communities of Angels Camp, Altaville, Salt Spring Valley and Copperopolis.

The general duties of the county board of education are indicated in several sections of the California Education Code. Education Code 1040 requires that a county board of education adopt rules and regulations consistent with state and local government. The Board is required to keep a record of their proceedings.

Board duties outlined include approval of the annual budget of the county superintendent of schools, review of the annual audit report, expulsion appeals, adoption of resolutions, property acquisition and disposal, just to list a few. A complete description and the board vacancy application are available on the Calaveras County Office of Education (CCOE) website at

Calaveras County Superintendent of Schools Scott Nanik stated, “There has been a long-standing tradition of seasoned and vested board members on the CCBE. We are looking for an individual that is dedicated to education in Calaveras and is looking to make a long-term impact.”

We asked the current CCBE members to share their thoughts about serving on the board. Valier Tudor, CCBE member for 32 years said, “I joined to board to fulfill my desire to serve the community, I felt a real need to do public service work.” Steven Looper has been on the board 27 years and stated, “Being on the board is a really great way to serve the community and show our youth how much we value them.”

Marti Crane has served on the CCBE for 12 years and said, “A position on the board represents an opportunity to work with a dedicated team to ensure high quality education for our students.” Member Colleen Denny-Garamendi shared that, “As a parent of students who grew up in Calaveras schools, I wanted to serve on the County Board of Education to share my experience, represent our area, and help promote excellence in our county schools and programs.” Sean Paulson, the newest board member, talked about goals for CCBE and explained, “The best goal for the board is to be a bridge to the public on what is happening with education at the county level and to support CCOE staff and superintendent with their goals.”

“We are very grateful to our CCBE members for their hard work and dedication,” said Nanik. “We hope to fill the vacancy with an equally dedicated individual.”

Everywhere you look, the failures of Governor Newsom are obvious and appalling to everyone. For this reason, the Recall Gavin 2020 campaign is not conservative or liberal, or right or left, or Republican or Democrat. This is a mass uprising.

Our Recall Gavin campaign is building a grassroots organization with over 80,000 California voters already signed up as volunteers to sign and circulate recall petitions. That number is growing every week. And this is just the beginning.

Are you tired of being locked up, unable to make a living, at the same time as California’s prisons are being emptied? Do you wonder why Gavin Newsom’s cronies are building “supportive housing” for the homeless at a cost of over a half-million dollars per unit, instead of just getting them help in less expensive facilities? Then join the Recall Gavin 2020 movement.

Did you struggle to run a business, even before this lockdown, because of overregulation and the highest taxes in America? Did you lose your livelihood when Gavin Newsom signed AB 5, which made it illegal for many companies to negotiate with independent contractors? Then join the Recall Gavin 2020 movement.

Are you troubled by the growing encroachments on the 1st Amendment; our right to speak our minds, to freely assemble, to congregate whether it’s at church or on the beach? Are you troubled by encroachments on your 2nd Amendment rights, threatening your ability to purchase a firearm to protect yourself, especially now? Then join the Recall Gavin 2020 movement.

Are you ready to take the offensive against the ongoing destruction of our public schools? Have you had it with new laws that make it impossible to hold students or teachers accountable, making many of our schools unsafe? Do you believe you have the right to control what sort of sex education (or indoctrination) your child receives? Then join the Recall Gavin 2020 movement.

Do you wonder how California’s cities, counties, and state agencies will ever pay off their pension debt, or balance their budgets, or stop raising taxes, when Gavin Newsom can’t even cut spending to provide benefits to illegal immigrants, benefits that aren’t even offered to working citizens of California? Then join the Recall Gavin 2020 movement.

We are building an army to recall Gavin Newsom, and if you answered yes to any of these questions, we need you.

Our petitions are available to download now. If you want to do more, contact the coordinator in your county for the Recall Gavin 2020 campaign, and find out how you can circulate petitions. There are many ways to get involved.

Let’s make history! Join Recall Gavin 2020. The path to making California golden again starts right here.
