Ali Hasan: Vote for Guy Pacot

I am writing in support of Guy Pacot for the Summit School Board. Not only is Guy my good friend, he is actually a father figure to me. I’m asking you to vote for Guy on the basis of three reasons: He understands education reform, he loves Summit, and most importantly, he is a good man.

I worked as a public school tyro-teacher in Los Angeles in the early 2000s, during my college years. In recognizing this work experience, Guy has taken much time to talk with me and other teachers, in doing his best to grasp the challenges that we face as teachers and how classrooms can be changed. I’ve shared many materials with Guy, including the education works of Spencer Kagan and Howard Gardener, and to his credit, Guy has read and analyzed it all. As a former school teacher, I definitely believe that Guy understands education reform.

My second reason is simple – Guy loves Summit. I believe Guy grew up in California and moved to Frisco in 1981, where he had his baby daughter, in creating a home with his wife. Guy is very active in the county, particularly in his church community, where he does his best to create strong relations between Summit and the church. The element I love most about Summit is the feeling of common bond and community and I believe that Guy is a major thread within that fabric.

Lastly, Guy is a good man. When I ran for HD56 last year, I aspired to build strong relations with our church communities. In having a Muslim background, I was tentative about my approach, but it was Guy who actively introduced me to the church community in Summit and had no qualms with my Muslim background. From Guy’s perspective, it was not the religious background that mattered, but rather, the intention – he was eager to support anyone that loved Summit – the thing we both share most in common.

Guy will serve the school board well and he will always be available to you. Please know that he has my highest endorsement.

Peace and love!
