All titles listed for identifying purposes only.

"I support Cecilia for school board because she has been a strong advocate for children, parents and teachers. She has demonstrated commitment to the community in her long and varied service on city commissions and school related organizations. During this challenging period, we need someone who will fight for all children, and ensure that children who need the most support are not lost."

“It is with great enthusiasm that I endorse Cecilia Escamilla-Greenwald for election to the Davis Joint Unified School District Board of Trustees. Her excellent work ethic, courage, character, and intelligence will inform her Service on the DJUSD school board. Her experience with the Yolo County Board of Education will provide additional insights and benefits at Davis Joint Unified. Cecilia has my highest recommendation.

Delaine Eastin

(Former State Superintendent of Public Instruction)

“Strong advocacy, attention to equity policy, as well as ethical principals are at the center of Escamilla-Greenwald's experience. She is sure to bring the missing Latina leadership voice and representation to the DJUSD Board of Education. It is long overdue.

Melissa Moreno, Ph.D.

“It is a real pleasure to endorse Cecilia Escamilla-Greenwald for Davis school board. I have known Cecilia for a number of years and I can’t think of anyone more dedicated to providing a great education and opportunities for success to all our students. She is thoughtful and compassionate and will be an exemplary representative, not only for Trustee Area 5 but for the District as a whole. I have confidence that she will be a Trustee who can help our District navigate some challenging times moving forward.
