Natomas School District Recognizes Outgoing Trustees

THE NATOMAS BUZZ | @natomasbuzz

The Natomas Unified School District this week recognized the service of outgoing board members Bruce Roberts and Jules Tran.

At a school board workshop held Tuesday, Dec. 4, both Roberts and Tran were thanked for serving four years as school district trustees. The pair, which ran as a slate with Susan Heredia in 2008, each served four years.

Veteran board member B. Teri Burns noted Roberts’ and Tran’s tenure as school board members coincided with a difficult period in Natomas School District history defined by massive budget cuts and turnover in leadership.

“I appreciate you weathering the storm with us,” Burns said. “In this tough boat, you more than pulled your oars.”

School board president Lisa Kaplan thanked Roberts and Tran for being “model school board members” and that she looked “forward to calling on both” as community members. Heredia, who sought re-election on a slate with Roberts and won one of three spots on the board, made her remarks during closed session.

Both Roberts and Tran were awarded commemorative clocks after which a brief reception was held.

Newly-elected school board members Ryan Herche and Scott Dosick attended the meeting. Both are scheduled to be sworn in at the Dec. 12 board meeting when they will begin their duties as board members.

Heredia won re-election handily with 6,321 or 15.42 percent of the vote. Herche won a seat with 5,844 or 14.26 percent of the vote, followed by Dosick with 5,663 or 13.82 percent.
