Pittsburg desperately needs change on the School Board and I offer a new perspective and leadership. I am passionate about my community and creating a better future in students’ lives. My roots in Pittsburg are deep - three generations of Pittsburg Pirates. Some may say I am too young to run for this seat. Rather I’m hearing youth need to be represented on the Board. I will not disregard the youth’s voice but instead will bring youth, parents, teachers, and PUSD employees to the table. This year, I became a co-advisor for the Black Student Union at Pittsburg High because it is important to me that students who are disenfranchised are not only set up for success but have a support system to help guide them. I organized the Pittsburg Black Lives Matter protest on June 5th and have participated in many more across the county. I will be the board member that will answer the community and youth’s outcry for change! My goals if elected are to close the educational gap for Black, Brown and low-income students in Pittsburg, build upon the restorative justice student disciplinary structure to provide more resources to students instead of suspending and expelling, and provide opportunities and options to high school students who decide that college may not be their path. Pittsburg needs a younger board member with a fresh perspective. A vote for Taylor Sims is a vote towards your student’s future. I respectively ask for your donation. Thank you!
