School board elections

Dear Editor:I am so very pleased that we will finally have contested school board elections this Nov. 5. Thanks to our community petition I started over four years ago, our district will finally have a frank and open discussion to improve our schools and possibly re-open the only closed school in the DUSD, Pace Elementary, which is perfectly situated next to a park with a community pool. Doesn't every child deserve the opportunity to walk to their nearest neighborhood school? Let the debate begin. John Paul Drayer Bellflower
