New Orleans School Board candidate Dr. J.C. Romero has been endorsed by the Orleans Parish Democratic Party (OPDEC), Forum for Equality, the Black Organization for Leadership Development (BOLD), Victory Fund, the Independent Women’s Organization (IWO), and the Alliance for Good Government. Forum for Equality and the Victory Fund are both major advocacy groups for LGBTQ+ rights and candidates.  BOLD is a civic engagement organization that has been influential in working to better the New Orleans community since the 1960s. IWO is a Democratic organization that has been working to fight corruption and promote women’s rights for decades. The Alliance for Good Government is a statewide organization that aims to educate voters and promote policy that helps the people of Louisiana.

J.C. has also been endorsed by New Orleans City Councilmember-At-Large Helena Moreno, District C Councilmember Kristin G. Palmer, School Board Member Sarah Usdin, former District A Councilmember Susan Guidry, former District 4 School Board Member Lourdes Moran, State Commissioner on Human Rights Richard Perque, former School Board Presidents Seth Bloom and Thomas Robichaux, and New Orleans Clerk of Court Austin Badon.

J.C. Romero is a longtime educator whose passion is for education. The son of a single mother who immigrated here from Nicaragua, J.C. was once a high school dropout, but he found his love of education through working with communities in recovery. Now, he has earned a Bachelors, Masters and Doctorate in education, and has worked as a teacher and as an administrator here in New Orleans and around the world. He never thought he would run for school board, but he felt called to help his community. He is also a proud gay man running against Leslie Ellison, an incumbent with a public anti-LGBTQ+ record. Ellison is a controversial figure due to her long history of opposition to LGBTQ+ rights. J.C., on the other hand, stands for the right of every student to be respected and welcomed in the classroom.

New Orleans’ school system presents novel challenges that require innovative solutions based on dedication and experience. As a longtime educator and administrator with a doctorate in education, J.C. Romero is uniquely qualified to take on these challenges.

District 4 covers parts of Algiers, French Quarter, Faubourg Marigny, and Bywater. The election for Orleans Parish School Board is set for November 3. For more information regarding Dr. J.C.
