This is a strong recommendation to re-elect Jim Vue to the St Paul School Board, from two retired St. Paul Public Schools educators whose three children attended St. Paul Public Schools K-12, and now have five grandchildren in SPPS.
Vue is an outstanding candidate for the St. Paul Public Schools, the father of four SPPS students, two who have special needs. Before being named, and then elected, to the board, Jim served on district-wide committees with a variety of other citizens. He is a veteran of the U. S. Army, serving in Iraq and Kuwait.
As the only Asian American on the board in a district with an enrollment of more than 30 percent Asian American, Vue has pushed the district to hold citywide Zoom meetings in several languages to share important information with a broad audience of families. He was one of the first to propose that the district more fully explore solar and other sustainable forms of energy. The district has just announced it will establish a task force to do this.
He was one of the first to urge the district to require faculty to be vaccinated or have medical exemption positions supported by the St Paul Federation of Educators
Jim understands his first responsibility is to represent students, families and the broader community and not be a spokesperson for the district. Please vote on Nov. 2 to return him to the school board.
