On Saturday, January 18, LA 500 hosted the state board meeting of CSEA in the board room of LAUSD Beaudry Building. CSEA members from all over Southern California came to witness the democratic process within our union and filled the room. Two of the LAUSD school board members, Scott Schmerelson and George McKenna came as guests and it was surreal to see them step up to the podium and thank CSEA, represented by the CSEA Board members, for all we do to support classified employees. President Ben Valdepena stated that it is unusual for school board members to attend our executive board meetings.
