Madera Unified Trustee Ricardo Arredondo Has Resigned. He’s Running for County Supervisor.

Madera Unified School District trustee Ricardo Arredondo has resigned after 10 years on the school board, the Madera Tribune reports. He says he plans to run for the Madera County Board of Supervisors’ District 4 seat which is currently held by Max Rodriguez.

“I am sincerely grateful for the community support and counsel that I have received over the years,” the Area 6 trustee said. “My accomplishments as a trustee came to pass through collaboration with my colleagues. Our board and superintendent are working together as never before. We have a dynamic team of administrators that are setting high standards, and the cooperative spirit is bearing fruit. Test scores are rising. The district is pulling together in the belief that we will soon be among the highest performing school districts in the state. At this time, I am comfortable stepping away from my post and leave the district in capable hands.”

“If elected supervisor, I will continue working to improve our community through sensible and sound governance. Together, we are stronger. Together, we can build a robust economy and infrastructure that will lead to a prosperous community.”

Arredondo won his first election to the Madera Unified Board in 2009. He served as board clerk in 2011 and as president in both 2012 and 2013. His current term runs through 2020.

Max Rodriguez has served as a county supervisor since 2004 and is currently in his fourth term.
