Statement for campaign 2020


CANDIDATE FOR GOVERNING BOARD
RIALTO UNIFIED SCHOOL DISTRICT


NAME: Joseph W Martinez                                       AGE: 63
OCCUPATION: Board Member, Rialto Unified School District

It is an honor serving my community on the Rialto Board of Education. I am a servant leader skilled at bringing about positive change while embracing a “win-win” philosophy. I have met, and sustained, 10 of 10 pledges I made to you in 2008. Data shows improved graduation rates, exam rates, improved college prep, STEM and vocational opportunities, and decreased dropout rates.


At the 2016 Ritz fundraiser I was introduced as Mr. STEM, due to my strong push for Science, Technology, Engineering and Math. STEM jobs are the current and future path to success. I will continue leading the high-tech push so that our students have a chance at achieving their “American Dream”.


99% of jobs created in this recovery have gone to those with education beyond a high school diploma. Only 1% of jobs went to those with a high school diploma or less. STEM jobs require technical certification, a two year degree or higher. I encourage students to strive for certification and a college degree.

I will continue to listen to stakeholders and to use tax dollars wisely. I ask for your vote in an effort to continue to improve educational opportunities for all students.
