Two candidates each for the two County School Board districts that include Antioch

By Allen Payton

There are two incumbents on the County School Board up for election, this year, who live in Antioch. They both have one challenger each.

Incumbent Cynthia Ruehlig, whose husband Walter used to serve on the Antioch School Board and is running again for it, this year, faces another Antioch resident, educator Jeff Belle for the seat representing Area 5. Incumbent Richard Asadoorian, a retired school administrator, whose wife, Barbara Cowan currently serves on the Antioch School Board, faces Danville businessman Mike Maxwell for the seat that represents Area 4.

So, Antioch will have at least one member of the County School Board who lives in town.

The election is on Tuesday, November 4.

    Between Cynthia Ruehlig and Jeff Belle I HAVE to vote for Cynthia. I do not know how Jeff Belle can call himself an educator.

  2. Jeff says:

    Jeff Belle has taught Respiratory Care to nurses, physicians, medical students and respiratory students for over 13 years. In fact, he’s given over 110 presentations at medical conferences. Further, Jeff has mentored and taught students in public health and research!
    If that isn’t an educator, then, perhaps the definition should be re-written.

  3. Jeff says:

    The fact of the matter is: Jeff Belle has lectured, mentored, clinical supervised and trained hundreds of respiratory care students, nursing students, medical students, PA students and public health students. From Virginia to California to Arizona to Hawaii, Jeff has given some of the best lectures on tics such as- ” Pulmonary Diagnostics, Tobacco Intervention for Busy Practitioners, Respiratory Pharmacology, Pulmonary Pathology, Clinical Applicatipn of Treating COPD, and other topics. Further, Jeff provided National Board Exam Prep Courses for Respiratory Students and Physician Associate students. Today, his student has had better than a 95 percentile passing score. One of the highest in the country.
