David Dayton announced his candidacy for reelection on the Zachary Community School Board, District 9. His official announcement follows.
Hello, my name is David Dayton, your representative for Zachary Community School Board District 9. I have served this community as a member of the Zachary Community School Board since 2004, having twice served as the President of the Board.
I have lived in Zachary for most of my life. My family has deep roots in this community. I believe in Zachary and I believe in the Zachary Community School District.
My wife and I have two sons in Zachary schools. My oldest son will be a Zachary High School Senior this school year and my youngest will attend Copper Mill Elementary. My wife, Tamara, is the Director at The Lodge at Lane and has served this community through her role in Social Services for 26 years. We are active members at First Baptist Church Zachary where I am an ordained deacon.
As your school board member, I have been responsive and receptive to parents, staff, and the community. I have served fairly in all situations, advocating for the educational needs of our children. I have supported the teachers in the district having the necessary tools and training to educate our children. I have pushed for accountability and the assurance that teachers, administrators, and staff members understand their responsibilities to our students. I have been prudent about fiscal responsibility and ensuring our tax dollars are managed and administered so students can safely learn and grow.
We are blessed in the Zachary Community School District to have incredible teachers, administrators and staff. I want to continue to ensure they are held to the highest standards. I want to see our students graduate with the skills they need to be successful in life and contributing members of our community.
Serving as your trusted school board representative for the past 18 years has been a rewarding and humbling experience. I want to continue to contribute to this district and to make a difference in the lives of our students. I ask for your vote once again for Zachary Community School Board District 9 on November 8, 2022.
