"With his work for New Leaders and Faith in the Valley, Levine has rich experience in trying to improve conditions for low-income families. Fresno Unified serves some of the nation's poorest neighborhoods. As an instructor himself, Levine also knows the challenges teachers have to face, especially in the time of COVID. Additionally, he has shown skill in creating civil discourse, which is sorely needed at Fresno Unified board meetings these days. Yet Levine can state his position without being intimidated by any opposition."

As an educator, Andy will be a strong voice on the FUSD board of trustees. His focus on community schools will help lead the district forward. I look forward to working with him as a partner to strengthen our education system.

"Black Women Organized for Political Action (BWOPA) is proud to endorse Andy Levine for Fresno Unified School Board Trustee, Area 5. Andy has proven to be a dedicated advocate for the children in the Fresno High area and throughout the District. Former Trustee Carol Mills, a life member of BWOPA, was very dedicated to the challenges of the students in District 5 and gave 100% to their betterment. BWOPA feels that candidate Andy Levine expresses those same qualities and would be a great addition to the FUSD Board of Trustees.

"I was a student of Andy’s right at the height of COVID. Despite the challenges that school year brought, Professor Levine always made class a great and vibrant discussion, as well as thoughtful. I say thoughtful because he was kind, understanding, and fun! His class ranks as one of the best courses I ever took at Fresno State because it taught me valuable information on society that I value and use still to this day. He brought in experts from our city and made sure the emotions were captured and conveyed even through a computer screen. Professor Levine is not only an extraordinary teacher, he is a wonderful person. He helped me navigate my way into professional networking with California legislators despite knowing me for only a few weeks. He takes his students and profession seriously, and I can't see a better candidate."
