I serve the Gold Canyon community as a volunteer for several organizations and events — Gold Canyon Business Association, Gold Canyon Lions, Gold Canyon Republican Chairman, Gold Canyon Business Fair Event Coordinator — and I am endorsing Jerry Walker for Central Arizona College Governing Board.
If you have not heard of Jerry Walker, you soon will. He is running for the Central Arizona College Governing Board this fall and needs your vote.
Why vote for Jerry Walker? Because he is credentialed, passionate and unapologetic in defense of an education system that will give our residents the best education for their money without indoctrination, and most important, encouraging free speech for all on campus. He wants students to learn not what to think but “how to think for themselves.”
Jerry Walker has been advocating for community education hubs to better serve all of Pinal County communities. Due to the geographic size of Pinal County, many communities find it difficult to attend “a one size fits all” location.
Jerry says “we need more locations and more opportunities for all Pinal County residents to further their education in their own backyard." Jerry speaks of “communiversities.” He is also a strong advocate for our veterans; he served 28 1/2 years as a Navy corpsman attached to Marines as a combat medic. He will advocate for veterans programs.
Jerry supports efforts for great schools and great educators. He will work diligently to attract, create and retain programs that will prepare students for quality jobs.
Vote for Jerry Walker for Central Arizona College Governing Board, CAC, on your November ballot — for you, your children, your neighbors and friends. Want to join the campaign, or need more information, or have questions for Jerry? Go to: electjerrywalker.com.
