Meet Monica Ratliff
My name is Monica Ratliff and I'm a teacher and a school boardmember.
In 2013, voters of School Board District 6, which includes Sunland-Tujunga, where I make my home, Lake View Terrace, La Tuna Canyon, North Hills, Mission Hills, Shadow Hills, Sylmar and Pacoima, gave me the honor of serving on the Los Angeles Unified School District's Board of Education. With over 600,000 students and a budget of 7 billion dollars, it was a challenge I embraced with an immense amount of responsibility. I promised the voters of our district: transparency, accountability, safety, support of the arts and to support schools that work.
Our campaign to get to the board seat succeeded thanks to donations and support from hard-working teachers, neighbors, friends, family and believers. Opponents spent a combined 2.2 million dollars while we spent under 88 thousand dollars. Thanks to the faith of the voters, I was sworn in to the board seat not owing anyone other than the voters. And after my four year term ends in July 2017, I hope, with your help and support, to continue serving our community owing no one except you, the voter.
Please consider getting to know me if you don't already or getting to know me better if you do. Also, please share your concerns and your potential solutions for our communities. We're in this together and together we can make a difference. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or give me a call at (818) 925-5797.
Thanks for visiting! See you in the neighborhood.
