My Name is Consuelo Lara

I am running for Contra Costa County Board of Education District 1. I am a retired teacher (35+ years) from West Contra Costa Unified School District, teaching at schools such as Helms Middle and Richmond High. My political career was essentially launched when community leaders and elected officials had been encouraging me to run for The West Contra Costa school board. After seeing the kind of people that dominated our school board, I ran, then I won, and I am now on the track of completing my two-year term.

I am very proud of what I accomplished in this short term: The Charter Schools Moratorium Resolution; The Arts Equity Resolution; and The initiation of the Career Technical Education Task Force.  I am honored to be endorsed by city leaders, teachers’ unions, organized trades and community families, I am especially grateful for the support of the California Teachers Association, CTA. 

------------------------ My Pledge ------------------------

  • I publicly pledge to refuse all corporate and pro-charter organization contributions. 
  • I declare my position to oppose privatizing and outsourcing central public school functions.
  • I oppose projects involving new charter schools, expansion and co-location of charter schools. 

------------------------ My Visions ------------------------

Contra Costa County students and families get full support and protections against Covid-19.

Racial justice conversations and anti-racist professional development implemented in all schools.

All students graduate with skills to get a good paying job right after graduation.

More Black and Brown teachers and administrators as role models

Ethnic Studies K-12 without racist textbooks.

The school-to-prison pipeline to be replaced by strong social-emotional health services.

Distance Learning without a digital divide.


When we elevate the most vulnerable, it elevates us all!

Please join in the fight.
