Parent-activist Mike Nolan filed candidacy papers on Thursday, seeking a four-year seat on the Davis school board in the Nov. 4 election.

Nolan said the resignation of one school board trustee and decision of three long-serving trustees to not seek re-election “makes experience in the school district matters imperative. As a parent in the school district for the last 15 years, whose two older children that have attended Davis schools from the Davis Parent Nursery School through to Davis High graduation, I can offer a pre-kindergarten through graduation perspective on the operation of our schools.”

Nolan added, “the Davis school District depends on a super-majority community consensus to fund our schools and programs. That consensus is based on a level of mutual trust between the school board and the public. With the volleyball controversy earlier this year, as well as last year’s forgery of parent names and comments on a petition to the Board, that trust has been shaken. … We can’t afford another school board meltdown.”

Nolan served as PTA President at Willett Elementary, on Willett’s Climate Committee, and the school’s Site Council. Nolan also served on the Emerson/Da Vinci PTA and Site Council. Nolan was also a member of the Superintendent’s Parent Advisory Committee, serving under four superintendents. Nolan ran for school board once before, in 2010. Nolan also has been involved in Davis AYSO and Davis Little League. Nolan and his family live in the rural area outside the Davis city limits.

Nolan attended Cal Poly San Luis Obispo and received his bachelor’s degree in history from the University of San Francisco. He later attended Western State University in San Diego, and was admitted to practice law in 1983.

Nolan is endorsed by the Davis Teacher’s Association.

Nolan’s campaign is currently building their website, mikenolan.org.
