In spite of being in office less than three months, Raquelita is already "Forging Change for Our Children" simply through her magical presence on the School Board.
The article, written by local filmmaker Joe Cardona, is replete with platitudes about Raquelita being "assertive, straight-forward, and insightful."
Cardona even threw a soft curve ball:
"The skeptic in me asked if that meant she would be willing to share some of her district's resources with ``needier'' neighboring areas. She instantly responded with a resolute ``Yes.''
