This week I announced my candidacy for the District 1 seat on the DeKalb Board of Education. You can learn more about me and the issues at my website, StanJester.com.
I am a parent, active school volunteer, education blogger and IT professional. I am dedicated to reforms in DeKalb that put the classroom first and protect the taxpayer from wasteful spending.
I will bring an important technical perspective to the board. I earned a bachelor’s degree in Computer Science from The University of Texas at Austin and bring over 20 years of experience in technology and data analysis. My professional experience includes developing business intelligence data systems that drive executive decisions as well as complex, multinational software development.
My most important job is being a parent. Nancy and I have three children attending public school in DeKalb. I know firsthand the condition of our schools and the challenges of parents and teachers. I am invested in the success of DeKalb’s schools and will bring an important and effective voice to the DeKalb Board of Education.
This May, “Keep Calm and Vote Jester”.
