James Mousalimas, current Deputy Superintendent of Schools at the San Joaquin County Office of Education, clearly stands out as the best candidate for County Superintendent of Schools in the November 4 election.
His distinguished 29 years of experience in education as a teacher, coach, Peace Corps volunteer and administrator, combined with a reputation of integrity, collaborative decision making and sound financial management is unmatched by any other candidate.
James Mousalimas has been endorsed by District Attorney-elect Tori Verber-Salazar; Sheriff Steve Moore; Michael Gillespie; over 6000 San Joaquin County teachers; over 4000 classified school employees (school bus drivers, custodians, instructional assistants, etc.); business leaders including Fritz Grupe and the AG Spanos Company; law enforcement agencies including the SJC Deputy Sheriffs, SJC Probation Officers and Stockton Police Officers; 12 out of 14 local school district Superintendents; three Board of Supervisors members – Ken Vogel, Steve Bestolarides and Carlos Villapudua; former State Senator and Assemblyman Patrick Johnston; and former State Superintendent of Public Instruction Jack O’Connell. This speaks to his ability to build broad-based partnerships and manage the complex programs provided by the County Office of Education.
James is a person of integrity and high ethical standards; he makes decisions that are in the best interests of our students. He is the only candidate who has the necessary experience to lead our county schools. I strongly recommend James Mousalimas as our next Superintendent of Schools in San Joaquin County.
