Pinal County School Superintendent Orlenda Roberts is a 34-year educator who has literally devoted her life to the children of Pinal County. Parents, children and all of the residents of Pinal County are indebted to her for her work.
Because her job is an elected position anyone can challenge her and run for the position. In this election her opposition is a young, inexperienced kindergarten teacher. This person cannot come close to the experience, knowledge and educational background of Ms Roberts. Roberts has used her expertise and knowledge to secure many federal grants bringing millions of federal dollars to Pinal County to enhance our schools to the benefit of our children.
Interestingly her opponent has said she would not secure any federal grants because “she doesn’t believe in it.” Apparently she is willing to sacrifice our children’s future to satisfy her personal radical political ideology.
Pinal County’s children need Superintendent Orlenda Roberts. They should not be a pawn to further someone’s radical right wing agenda.
