    Mr. Michael Abdallah is our choice to represent the parents, students and the tax payers on the Lodi School Board for area 6. We've known Mr. Abdallah for several years as he taught all 3 of our children at Bear Creek High School. He is dedicated, honest, genuine, has a disciplined approach to managing budgets and always places the students first. What a change this will be to a board that has lost focus of it's purpose. For 30 years, Mr. Abdallah observed the Lodi School Board make wise and great decisions and making the district one of the very best in the state, but lately much of this has changed with the students and teachers getting the short end of the stick due to a board membership that fails to place priorities for the interest of the students, parents and tax payers.

    It is time for a change, with fresh ideas, a budgetary disciplined approach with board members that honor their duty, respect their responsibilities and stand up for what is right. It is time to send Mr. Abdallah to the board so our district can return to its glory days of better education, better planning and investing in the future of our children.
    This board does not need more bureaucrats or bankers. Consider the recent history with banks and how they have been managed. We clearly do not need more of the same.. Mr. Abdallah lived it for 30 years and being a teacher with a voice representing those who are on the recipient end should be the choice.

    Elect Michael Abdallah for Lodi School Board area 6 and put the teachers and students first!

    Tony & Anna Lutfi
