A Leader in school equity

Continue Our Progress

My name is Patrick Morales and I have had the honor of serving on the Tempe Elementary School Governing Board for the past four years. I was raised by educators and know the importance of public education. I am asking you to re-elect me this November to continue the path of progress we are on.

Over the past four years our board has solidified several policies to uplift our community and fully support our students, educators and support staff. I have committed my professional career to advocating for improving education and school equity.

Beyond the success of our school board I have worked in education advocacy for nearly a decade. This work has included advocating for K-12 policy and higher education statewide initiatives. I also currently serve on the Arizona School Board Association’s board of directors as the President of the Hispanic and Native Caucus.

With your vote on November 6th I will continue my commitment to improving education in Arizona.


My Fights

Education

We must protect our neighborhood schools, our public schools, especially our early-childhood programs. Higher- Education should not be a commodity. Accessibility for both is everything.

Equity

A modern city must take the necessary steps to make sure we go beyond equal to equitable. Closing the gap, fighting disparities, and achieving together as one community.

Poverty

Focusing in on the other half of Tempe the displaced and marginalized. Those in our streets and the so many who live with food and housing insecurities. It is up to us to uplift our neighbors.
