Barbara Archer, longtime community volunteer and public relations professional, was the first to file candidacy papers in the Davis school board race. Archer filed Monday as a candidate for a four-year term.
The filing period continues through Aug. 13. Four seats will be open in the election on Nov. 4 — three four-year terms and one two-year term.
Archer is a former Willett Elementary PTA president and elected Site Council member. She co-chaired the Measure C school parcel tax, which won with 72.3 percent of the vote in March 2012.
Archer was an applicant for the appointed school board seat this past spring and also recently participated in the school district’s strategic planning process, served as vice president of the Da Vinci Charter Academy Booster Club last year and was a member of the school district’s Parcel Tax Oversight Committee in 2011-13.
A public relations manager for a local farm and produce delivery service, she has three children in the Davis schools — an incoming 10th-grader at Davis High and twins who will start Emerson as seventh-graders.
Archer holds a bachelor’s degree in history at UCLA. She is married to Daniel Segel, a native of Davis.
Archer was recently endorsed by the Davis Teachers Association.
