Long Beach, California:  On Tuesday, December 1, 2015, TALB’s Representative Council, which includes teachers, nurses, and librarians from every LBUSD District school, voted overwhelmingly to endorse Felton Williams for school board in Area 2 and Jon Meyer for school board in Area 4. 

“Mr. Meyer and Mr. Williams provided steady and calm leadership through a difficult recession.  They are always working collaboratively with our community, parents, and school staff towards the steady improvement of our local schools,” said Barry Welsch, President of the Teachers Association of Long Beach.   Added Welsch, “We are fortunate that Mr. Meyer and Mr. Williams are running for another term.  They both spent careers as successful educators and are now willing to volunteer for another term on the School Board.  It was an easy decision to support their candidacy.”
