“Yusef’s unique perspective as a former member of the School Board, a parent, and an education administrator gives him invaluable insights into the needs and aspirations of Saint Paul Public Schools. He understands firsthand the challenges that students, parents, and educators face on a daily basis. I wholeheartedly endorse Yusef Carrillo for School Board because he possesses the experience, dedication, and vision needed to drive positive change in our district and understands the importance of an active School Board that elevates community concerns and holds our school district accountable.”

I first came across Yusef during his interim service on the board. I was impressed by his willingness to ask difficult questions and advocate for his neighbors. His understanding of the scope of board work and the nuances of large, complex systems like our district is needed and encouraging. I am proud to support Yusef and look forward to working with him.
