"David's ability to relate to people is what makes him a great leader and exactly what the Berryessa community needs as it continues leading in excellence."
- Jaime Koo, parent

I have been honored to serve on the Board of the Berryessa Union School District since 2006. We navigated some tough times during the recession, but I always focused on the best interest of Berryessa students. I fought to keep class sizes small, continue our award-winning music program, and maintain special programs.

We have recently enhanced the educational opportunities afforded families, by moving to all day kindergarten, adopting rigorous standards, adding additional days for staff professional development, and starting dual immersion bilingual programs for Mandarin and Spanish. Our 13 schools have all been renovated, thanks to the Measure L bond approved by voters.

I have led efforts to enhance local funding for our schools through a modest parcel tax and the bond. I have insisted that our district be a good community partner. We now generate solar energy at each of our schools, we have moved to more environmentally sustainable materials in our lunch room, and we have invested in energy efficiency across the district. We have a new central kitchen so that our students are offered more variety in their meals.

I am proud to have the support of a wide variety of parents, teachers, and school staff. I am endorsed by Berryessa Teachers, the California School Employee Association, and several other community groups. I have earned the support of a many key district leaders, including Ro Khanna, Dave Cortese, Kansen Chu, Lan Diep, and Sam Liccardo.  

Please join me as we continue to make great progress for Berryessa's students, families, and the entire community.
