Letter: Teachers support Nishimoto, Bhopale, Velschow and Measure R
October 08, 2013, 05:00 AM Letter


The Belmont-Redwood Shores Faculty Association is endorsing Naomi Nishimoto, Suvarna Bhopale and Chuck Velschow for the Belmont-Redwood Shores Elementary School District Board of Trustees. We further thank the community for its unending support of our students and announce our official endorsement of Measure R.

Nishimoto: Naomi is respected. As a resident of Belmont for six years, Nishimoto is the only non-incumbent who has attended more than 41 board meetings to understand our school district’s successes and issues first-hand (

Bhopale: Suvarna is collaborative. As a resident of Redwood Shores since 2003, Bhopale has volunteered at Sandpiper Elementary and served as president of her homeowners’ association. She is a proponent of establishing districtwide programs to support all of our students ( Velschow: Chuck is proven. As a BRSSD Trustee since April 2011, Velschow has not governed from abroad. He is a teacher and the only school board member in the past years who visited school sites to see programs in action (

Measure R: BRSFA has officially endorsed Measure R to protect the high-quality and well-rounded education that students receive in our local schools without increasing taxes. It will protect math, science, reading and writing programs, support school libraries, attract and retain qualified teachers and maintain a well-rounded curriculum, including music and art (

By voting for Nishimoto, Bhopale, Velschow and Measure R, you will create a school board composed of two women and three men who share a collaborative vision for our district, and you will renew funding for local schools without increasing taxes.
