Board candidates tackle the issues

My name is Stacy Gramazio, and I’m 44 years old. I completed my B.A. in Media Arts from the University of Arizona and my teaching certification from California State University at Northridge. I have nearly a decade of experience in education and taught English at Poston Butte High School. Currently, I work as a public affairs and communications manager in Florence and serve on the board of directors for the Copper Basin YMCA and the Coolidge Chamber of Commerce. Most importantly, I’m a proud mom of two boys who attend Skyline Ranch K-8. As a former teacher, parent of FUSD students, and active community member, I’m confident I can provide a well-rounded perspective and fresh voice to the governing board. -- Florence Reminder and Blade-Tribune
