Darryl Jones,
School Board Chair 

Our children deserve a school board member who will make sure that they have the resources they need to achieve. The children in School Board District 3 deserve an advocate who will work to bring radical and transformative change to their schools.

When it comes to our children’s future, the stakes are too high to leave well enough alone. I will be the voice of change for school aged children living in southeast and southwest Tallahassee. I hope that you will join my campaign. Together we will help bring a 21st century education to the children in District 3.
