Camarillo – Dr. Mark Lisagor, one of Ventura County’s most widely respected and highly honored community leaders, announced today that he will seek election to the Ventura County School Board. Dr. Lisagor is an internationally recognized Pediatric Dentist, who has served Ventura County children for more than 30 years. He and his partners provide children’s dental services in four offices throughout Ventura County.
In his announcement, Dr. Lisagor made clear his reason for running: “Ventura County public schools are in crisis. Our kids are not getting the public education they need and deserve. And Ventura County taxpayers are not getting the sound financial management of their schools they should expect.”
“This is a serious challenge. My real world business management skills, my proven record of public education accomplishments, and my state and national child advocacy relationships will help resolve our current crisis.”
“After being approached by a wide spectrum of community leaders who have become frustrated with the incumbent Board Member’s focus on politics rather than children, I felt a genuine obligation to run for School Board. I am running for just one reason: because our School Board and our students desperately need new leadership.”
“My candidacy has already been enthusiastically endorsed by State Superintendent of Schools Jack O’Connell and Ventura County Supervisor Kathy Long.” Supervisor Long said, “Mark will guide the Board to make our children’s scholastic success their highest priority. He has my full support.”
Dr. Lisagor closed his remarks saying: “As a Pediatric Dentist, I have dedicated my entire professional life to helping Ventura County’s children. I am fortunate to have served as volunteer Chair of the Camarillo Boy’s and Girl’s Club and as Chair of the Cal State University Channel Islands Foundation.”
“I deeply appreciate being honored as Camarillo “Man of the Year” and having received the Thomas Jefferson Award for Public Service, the Interface Children and Family Services “Volunteer of the Year” Award, and the Cal State University Channel Islands “Lagormarsino Award” just last year. And the support of such community leaders as former Superintendent Charles “Chuck” Weis, Camarillo Mayor Charlotte Craven, Carolyn Leavens of Santa Paula and Hank Lacayo among many others from across the district reinforces the importance of this election and our community’s desperate need for new leadership on the County School Board.”
