With a little help from my friends

This past week was truly inspirational. I had the privilege of spending several days with smart, passionate leaders from around the country. The stories behind our work varied as did the shape Of the work. But we were all there because of our deep commitment to children and families. Sitting among these passionate and accomplished leaders made me wonder why I’m not doing more for the kids in Stockton. And so I’m making a commitment to you, to myself and to the kids of this community. I will use my voice, my skills and my priveledge to ensure all kids in Stockton grow up safe, healthy and well-educated. This isn’t work that can be done alone and there are many who have already taken up th work. But if you are not among them, I invite each of you to look around and find a way to lift up our kids. We all have a part to play in creating a better Stockton.
