Tempe City Council Member and former Tempe Union High School District Governing board member Robin Arredondo-Savage and Dick Foreman, also a former Tempe Union Governing Board member and current Tempe Preparatory Academy Board member are co-founders of Education First.
“As a former governing board member I know first hand how difficult it is to reach out to voters. Dick and I are proud to offer this opportunity for all candidates and the public to join us in discussing key issues affecting our schools and what they, the candidates, will offer to us voters on behalf of Tempe families,” said Arredondo-Savage.
“Councilmember Arredondo Savage and I have had a great response from the candidates and look forward to a thoughtful discussion on education issues that affect our local schools. We are both excited to offer this opportunity to voters throughout these three great school districts to learn first hand about the candidates.”
