Continuing to snap up important endorsements and broaden his already extensive roster of supporters, Uduak Ntuk announced today that he has secured the endorsement of current Long Beach Unified School District Board Member, Dr. Felton Williams in the race for the School Board’s 1st District.
Dr. Felton Williams has said the following:
“It is with sincere pleasure that I announce my support and endorsement of Uduak Ntuk as a candidate for the Board of Education, 1st District,” said Dr. Williams.
“I have had the opportunity to work with Uduak on a number of local community issues and have come to appreciate his work ethic and passion for the City of Long Beach. In particular, his involvement in education events strongly exemplify his commitment to our students, parents and the district. Most recently, Uduak worked with our middle school students in promoting the robotics program and shared his expertise and experience as an engineer.”
“As a long term resident of North Long Beach, with deep roots in the city as a student and now parent of a student attending our schools, I have no doubt that Uduak will continue to advance the important work of the district as a member of the school board. I look forward to working with Uduak Ntuk as a member of the Board of Education.”
Dr. Felton Williams, a retired Dean of Business and Social Science at Long Beach City College, is an educator with over 36 years of experience in higher education. He is in his third term as a member of the Long Beach Unified School Board of Education.
“It is an absolute honor to have the endorsement of Dr. Williams, who I have been privileged to work with over the past several years,” said Ntuk. “I am grateful to know that he trusts me to continue our work of increasing graduation rates, closing the achievement gap, and preparing all LBUSD kids for college and careers.”
Dr. Williams now joins a growing list of high profile endorsements from individuals and organizations such as Assemblymember Anthony Rendon, Laborers Local 507, United Association Local 709, Long Beach Association of Engineering Employees and a growing number of key community leaders, businesses, clergy, and labor leaders in support of our campaign for Long Beach School Board.
Ntuk is running to replace 24 year LBUSD Board Member, Mary Stanton, who has announced that she will not seek a seventh term. The Primary Election will be held on April 8, 2014.
