"Leslie Reckler is an outstanding and most effective board member for our WCCUSD students and families. I have worked with Leslie on multiple initiatives at Korematsu Middle School and El Cerrito High School to help our students from all backgrounds prepare for college over the past decade, and Leslie has the knowledge, skill set, and passion to help our schools make the best decisions that help our students. With our district facing a fiscal crisis we especially need Leslie’s fiscal management experience to make the best choices with our students in mind during this difficult time."  - Michael Trevino, Former Director of University of California System Undergraduate Admissions

The last two years have been particularly difficult for communities and schools, and we need strong leaders with deep roots in our community and an ethical drive to make schools available for all children. Leslie's work to keep schools open and to hold a line regarding fiscal solvency are the exact reasons why I support her re-election campaign. -Tanya Baker


"Parent of Mira Vista And ECHS student. Thank you for protecting our public schools!! " - Julie Salaman

"Leslie has watched over me and my family since I was born, and now I am a college freshman at the school of my choice.  Leslie works for ALL of the children. "
- Karla Zermeno

"Leslie made our years as parents with two children in the WCCUSD school district so much easier.  She helped us navigate several difficult issues with her in-depth knowledge and step by step recommendations. Leslie is an invaluable problem solver and definitely knows how to get things done."  Deb Lane Goldstein

"I have the highest regard for Leslie Reckler and support her as our community rep on the WCCUSD School Board District 5." - Buddy Akacic, East Bay Senior Stroll

" I served as a Trustee on the Martinez School Board for 15 years
and as a Member of the Contra Costa Community College Board for 8 years.
I was Chair of the West Contra Costa Unified School District's Independent Redistricting  Commission.  I am a former teacher.  Through my work on the redistricting commission, I came into contact with many of Leslie's constituents, who voiced repeatedly that she was doing 
a great job with tremendously difficult work, and felt fortunate to have such a solid champion for all students on the board. As a seasoned trustee, I agree. "
-VIcky Gordon

 "Leslie has always given me her time and heard me out when things were tough at the school district. I'm 100% voting for her and I hope all my friends and neighbors do the same!" Ernesto Falcon, Madera Parent

Leslie Reckler was the leader that we needed during the pandemic. Her clear-sighted, common-sense approaches to difficult issues allowed our schools to reopen safely for students and teachers. She is a trusted and proven leader, who won't give in to special interests like the charter school industry. We need Leslie for four more years! -Juliet Christian Smith
