Raymond Cruz is running for Simi Valley School Board. I met up with him outside city hall and had a chance for him to explain on video why he is running plus some other issues.There are several videos but I will start with the obvious "Why are you running" question. I will be posting the rest of the videos between here and the election. You can also read about him on Tim Keaney's blog. Tim and I might not agree on many issues but we both agree voters need to know more about our local schools.
Watch the video and then leave questions or comments for Mr. Cruz. If you want to leave questions for other candidates that have been interviewed please leave questions for them on their entries.

I want to thank all the candidates that have sent in their press releases, made videos, and most importantly have answered questions left by citizens in the comments section. It shows your respect for our system where a candidate is really going through a really tough interview. I know it can be hard to be a candidate with all the hits coming your way, the constant campaigning, asking for money, and trying to get your voice heard. I appreciate your efforts for our community and the readers do too.
