Other facts

Alan is a husband and proud father of two young boys. He came to Davis in 1993 to attend the University of California, Davis (UCD) as an undergraduate. While at UCD, Alan met his wife, Lia, a "Davis girl" who attended Davis public schools from preschool through college. They graduated from UCD in 1997, but Lia still sometimes jokes that Alan is new to the community. After college, Alan earned his law degree and works as an attorney and policy advocate. Throughout his twenty years in Davis, Alan has devoted himself to community service. Highlights of his volunteer service in Davis schools include: Birch Lane Elementary School Site Council 2010-12; Superintendent's Advisory Committee on Special Education 2008-10; Classroom volunteer 2009-ongoing.

Alan decided to run for school board because he noticed the absence of a strong voice, on the Board or among the candidates, with very young children just starting out in Davis public schools. This concerned him because he knows that there will be significant decisions that will be made in the short term that will have a long term impact on the district and his own children and future generations of Davis children. So, Alan decided to throw his hat in the ring and is planning to campaign with a message about engagement, investment and enhancing our schools.
