LOS ANGELES – Today, former California Senator Barbara Boxer announced her endorsement of Kelly Gonez in her race for school board in Los Angeles. Senator Barbara Boxer represented Californians for 24 years.

“I am pleased to join former Obama Secretary of Education Arne Duncan in his support of Kelly Gonez for LAUSD,” said Senator Boxer. “As a product of public schools from kindergarten through college, I believe from the bottom of my heart that we need to bring fresh energy and fresh ideas on behalf of our children, and that is what she will do. From fighting Trump's painful education cuts to teaching and protecting our children, I feel that Kelly will be outstanding.”
