Trust Fernandes with our future

By
From page A6 | October 26, 2012 |

I have cast one of my votes for the Davis school board for Alan Fernandes. Over the past several years, I have come to know Alan and his family. I trust Alan with the future of our children.

He brings an amazing blend of active community volunteer experience and practical professional policy-making expertise. As a former two-term school board member in Davis, I find it heartening to see many young parents, teachers and staff becoming involved in local elections for the first time in support of Alan’s candidacy and the future of the Davis school district.

Alan is an active classroom volunteer and a member of the Site Council at Birch Lane Elementary School. He is a member of the Superintendent’s Special Education Advisory Committee. He can be seen around town coaching baseball and T-ball or helping out with any number of causes.

But you might also have seen him as the chairman of the city of Davis Business and Economic Development Commission or in the formative stages of the U.S. Bicycling Hall of Fame. Or maybe you remember that he volunteered his time and legal expertise to craft the bylaws for the Blue & White Foundation and other local nonprofits.

In fact, Alan is so visible around Davis in so many voluntary community-building activities that many people are not aware of his professional background as an effective advocate for local governments in the state Capitol. Alan builds coalitions and solves problems. He is unflappable and good-humored. He brings balanced, sound judgment and keen intellect to every issue and circumstance.

If elected, Alan will be the only member of the Davis school board with young children in our schools. He has the right stuff; please join me in supporting Measure E and Alan Fernandes for the Davis school board.
