Testimonials — Pleasanton Leaders
Steve puts students first when making decisions. His leadership is extremely valuable, and I’m grateful that he’s willing to continue serving the students & staff of PUSD for another term.
Kelly French, President, Pleasanton Partnerships in Education Foundation
Steve has been the voice of all stakeholders in our community — with the number-one focus on what is good for our students!
Tanya Ludden, 2016 Pleasanton Mayor’s Award for Community Service
Steve always looks out for what is in the best interest of the students. He always effectively balances needs and urgency like a pro. PUSD needs Steve Maher’s experience and leadership during these difficult times.
Herb Ritter, Chair, Planning Commission, City of Pleasanton
I have known Steve for many years. He is a trusted educator in the Pleasanton community with a long history of putting kids first. I supported his initial campaign to become a Pleasanton school board trustee four years ago, and I fully support his re-election campaign.
As an elected Pleasanton official, I especially appreciate Steve’s pragmatic approach when deliberating tough questions as a school board trustee: he always considers what will be best for students and then advocates and votes accordingly.
Kathy Narum, Vice-Mayor, City of Pleasanton
He genuinely cares about our kids and shares his time, effort, and passion to support our students, teachers, parents, administrators...our Pleasanton. He truly believes in open discussion, considers different perspectives, and balances the competing priorities of our community to make the educational experience better for ALL students.
He sees more than grades and trophies and awards — he cares about the whole student — he wants our kids to leave PUSD healthy, confident, enriched, and ready to make the world a better place.
