Hi. I’m Amanda Chagoya, and I’m running for the board of education.
In 2020, when it became clear that the change that I wanted to see in the world wasn’t going to come from the national-level down, I decided to be the change, to start locally and push the change up.
As a mom, a businesswoman and a community volunteer, I know that it takes more than passion to make a difference. It takes coordination, communication, strategy and a healthy helping of listening. I look forward to helping Newark families, teachers and staff thrive.
I believe that every child deserves an equitable, high-quality education.
I believe in the power and importance of labor unions.
I believe that healthcare is a human right, not an employee privilege.
I believe that workers deserve to make a living wage, and support a $15/hour federal minimum wage.
I believe climate change is real, and it’s the responsibility of everyone to make change.
let’s turn belief into action!
I would be honored to have your support in the upcoming election! If you’re not registered to vote yet, please visit the Alameda County Registrar of Voters website. Register to Vote
