What people say about Cindy

“Cindy is a tremendous asset to the CVUSD. Her commitment to a student-first approach has undoubtedly made a positive impact on the environment provided to students, and her comprehensive experience and close relationships with all CVUSD stakeholders — the BOE, superintendent, administration, teachers and parents — makes her an excellent choice for the board this November.”

Dianne McKay , College District Board Trustee*

“I am so proud and excited to endorse Cindy Goldberg as candidate for the Conejo Valley Unified School District (CVUSD) Board of Education. If you have not yet heard of Cindy, you soon will as she is a pillar in this community, and well known by many. Cindy has spent the past 15 years in the Conejo working on behalf of kids and schools. She has had a tremendous positive impact on our community in her role as Executive Director of the Conejo Schools Foundation. In addition to her paid job, Cindy has been a Super volunteer within the CVUSD. Cindy currently serves as the chairperson of the District Advisory Council (DAC). The primary purpose of DAC, a committee of the school board, is parent involvement. I have attended many DAC meetings as an observer, and I am continually impressed by Cindy’s calm, professional leadership. She has helped to organize, facilitate, and lead excellent, and engaging meetings. Parents share ideas and best practices among themselves and bring them back to their school sites. Insights are then shared with the school board through monthly reports. Cindy is kind, balanced, professional, and non-partisan. She understands how the district works, and she has good relationships with all stakeholders. She is the perfect person to right the ship on our school board and calm the waters. I have been a CVUSD trustee for 20 years, and I can’t think of a better candidate to join the board. I feel confident retiring knowing that someone of Cindy’s caliber and character will be on the board. I hope that you’ll all join me in voting for Cindy on November 6th.”

Pat Phelps , CVUSD Board Member 1998 to November 2018*

I first met Cindy when I became a board member of the Conejo Schools Foundation many years ago. Since then I have had the pleasure of not only working with her on several committees and projects throughout the District but also to watch her ability to bring CVUSD and community stakeholders together to put kids first and improve education and programs for all kids.
Her commitment to and knowledge of our schools and community give her the platform to move our district movement, refocus and redirect our school board in a positive manner and protect our property values.

Sue Wells , Vice President, Conejo Schools Foundation*

“After 15 years working with CVUSD schools, Cindy has the experience, focus, and tenacity to get things done for CVUSD.”

Judy French , National Bullying Prevention Center, PACER Los Angeles*

“I have known and worked side by side with Cindy in my many years while serving on DAC (District Advisory Council). My children benefit annually from her work with Conejo Schools Foundation. Most importantly, Cindy has demonstrated to me an ability to help to heal the damage and divide created in these recent years. I look forward to the end of the Us vs. Them conversation. I know that Cindy can lead and help us remember how to listen and respect each other.”
