Re "Will KJ run for a 3rd term?" (Marcos Breton, Feb. 16): In his Sunday column Marcos Breton, wrote that Mayor Kevin Johnson has been about the "Kings and the arena all day, every day."

As someone who has worked for many years with this mayor to improve education in our region, I'm compelled to point out that Johnson has led efforts to bring several world-class education programs to Sacramento. These include City Year, Teach for America, and College Track.

The Mayor also launched a third grade reading initiative to help address the unconscionable 37 percent reading proficiency rate of Sacramento's third graders.
