1st elected latino majority school board in Oregon
We made history today by electing Anthony Medina, who makes the Woodburn School Board the first elected Latino majority school board in Oregon!!! At just 25 years old, Anthony has broken down barriers for future generations of students. He was the first in his family to graduate from college, earned a Master's in Education Policy from Stanford University and works as a budget analyst for the State of Oregon. Talk about being young AND qualified to lead in our local school board.
Levi Herrera-López was a candidate for the school board in Salem-Keizer zone 5. Although he did not obtain the position Levi made history in being the first Latino to recieve 13,000 votes. App knocked on 5,000 doors in Salem-Keizer for Levi, and over 2,000 for Anthony. In total APP knocked on more than 7,000 doors.
