What people are saying

“I support Mark Stegeman because he can be counted on to listen and be responsive to concerns of teachers and staff. Mark works on our behalf and not on behalf of the district administration.  He listened to the concerns of teachers regarding excessive testing and succeeded in changing policy to lessen the number of mandated district tests. Mark puts the students and employees first.”

Rosalva Meza: teacher and former President of the Tucson Education Association

“The needs of TUSD students and teachers must come first.  That’s why the TUSD School Board needs Mark Stegman’s critical eye and strong voice for transparency and accountability.“

Don Jorgensen: past Chair of Pima County Democratic Party

“Mark Stegeman is a critical member for re-election to the TUSD board.  He will keep the board’s emphasis on accurate American History plus math and reading skills to prepare students for good jobs.   The texts used in classes are critical and those decisions are a major function of the school board.”

Garland & Carolyn Cox: past Chair of the Pima County Republican Party

“Mark Stegeman puts TUSD students first. We need him on the School Board.”

Carol West: former Tucson City Councilperson

“Mark Stegeman has been a steadfast supporter of UHS in its attempt to attain its own campus and have its own middle school so we can keep more students in TUSD. As an Economics Professor at the University of Arizona, he has the rare combination of abilities to understand both what quality education looks like and the economics behind developing a thriving school system to attract great teachers and to deliver high quality services to every student in TUSD. He has consistently supported teachers by maintaining a tough stance on student discipline and by promoting teachers’ academic freedom within the framework of the law.”

Paul Karlowicz: UHS Teacher and former President of the Tucson Education Association
