Sudha is a fearless leader! I have known her for many years as a friend. Working side by side with her mentoring elementary students for Destination Imagination for years , having seen her grow Vervecon as a successful Entrepreneur , I truly believe that she is the right choice to bring new energy, passion and innovative ideas as CUSD board elect during the November Election of 2020. Sudha is caring and understands that in order to serve the community one needs to listen first . In a short period of time she built a community of parents through her CUSD focus group and brought all concerns along with the right solutions to the CUSD board. She has motivated young students through her youth focus group . Sudha will be an excellent addition to the CUSd board to come up with robust solutions to the upcoming challenges, being strong voice for parents and kids.
