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 Visions ------------------------

That Contra Costa County students and families get support throughout this Covid-19 pandemic

Racial justice conversations and anti-racist professional development to be common in all schools

All students graduate with skills to get a good paying job

There are more Black and Brown teachers and administrators as role models

All students take Ethnic Studies K-12 without racist textbooks

Parents are partners with teachers

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


When we elevate the most vulnerable, it elevates us all! Please join in the fight.
