Davis school board trustee Alan Fernandes filed candidacy papers on Friday seeking the remaining two years of the seat he was appointed to fill in May.

“I am optimistic about the future of our district and would be honored to continue serving the people of this community and rebuilding our schools for the future,” he said in a news release.

A longtime Davis resident, Fernandes has served as a volunteer on the school district’s Strategic Planning Committee, the Parcel Tax Citizens Oversight Committee, Birch Lane Elementary School’s  Site Council, the Superintendent’s Advisory Committee on Special Education and as classroom volunteer.

He also was a school board candidate in the 2012 election.

In addition to his service in the educational arena, Fernandes has volunteered in several other community efforts, including as a board member of Cities, Counties, Schools, a statewide organization focused on finding collaborative projects among local governments; a board member of Suicide Prevention and Crisis Services of Yolo County; and as a Davis Little League coach.

Fernandes has a broad range of professional work experience in the private and public sectors. He has published on topics such as effective government advocacy, including a law review article on ethics in government, and is occasionally asked to speak publicly on these topics.

In addition, he has served as a pro-bono attorney on multiple occasions, particularly in capacities representing parents or organizations interacting with public schools. Fernandes works in Sacramento as the chief legislative representative for Los Angeles County.

He lives in Davis with his wife and two elementary school-aged sons.

A campaign kickoff will be held on Aug. 24 from 5 to 7 p.m. at 732 B St. to formally launch the Fernandes campaign and celebrate the start of the new school year. The public is welcome to attend.
