From City of Commerce Community Services Commissioner Johncito Peraza:

 

"I am a former Senior Class President and current college student -- I am not a politician and neither is Lydia Gutierrez, she's an active teacher inside the classroom.... Teachers know the classroom better than anyone. There is no doubt in my mind that because of her commitment to students and their future, Lydia is the ideal person to serve on school board. Not only can Lydia  achieve academic excellence for students and, therefore, cultivate success after graduation but she will do so in a fiscally responsible fashion for all community stakeholders. This March, I encourage my friends within LAUSD to vote for Lydia Gutierrez, thanks!"
