Polls are open: vote for Stevon Cook!

Dear friends,

Absentee ballots are starting to roll in, so be sure to cast your vote for Stevon Cook and ask your network to do the same.

Though the Committee to Elect Stevon Cook for School Board has made some real headway through traditional campaign practices, we can't win this election without some good, old-fashioned word of mouth in the final days. Often folks don't know or consider who to vote for in Board of Election races, but if you've been following this campaign you understand how important it is that we have the right people guiding our city's public schools. Help share that message with your friends, family members, coworkers, and neighbors by asking them to vote for Stevon Cook this election day.

And what if, while you're campaigning hard, your connections ask, "But why should I vote for Stevon?" We've got you covered! As the San Francisco Bay Guardian put it, "It's important for the school board to hear from the voices of families, and Stevon Cook is exactly that. A third-generation San Franciscan and resident of the Bayview, Cook has the perspective of a large segment of SFUSD students."

In fact, Stevon is the only candidate who went all the way through SFUSD schools and has dedicated his career to increasing opportunities for San Francisco's students. Learn more about his work here. And, to see who else has endorsed Stevon, including United Educators of San Francisco, Harvey Milk LGBT Democratic Club, Black Young Democrats of San Francisco, and more, please take a look at the full list here.

Thanks again for your tremendous support. We'll have more opportunities for you to get involved coming up, but in the meantime, please help us spread the word as folks cast their votes!

In Community,

Emily, Will, Faauuga, Fernando, and the entire Stevon Cook for School Board team
