— JEROME PANDELL —
AN ADVOCATE FOR OUR SCHOOLS, FROM OUR COMMUNITY
Alamo resident Jerome Pandell is running in November 2022 to become a trustee for Area 1 on the Board of Education for the San Ramon Valley Unified School District — home of the elementary, middle, and high schools in Alamo and Danville that both Jerome and his wife Emlyn attended. A longtime volunteer for the SRVUSD, Jerome served from 2015 through 2021 on the SRVUSD Facilities Oversight & Advisory Committee, including more than 3 years as chair. This committee ensures transparency for taxpayers in spending on school campus construction projects and provides recommendations to District leaders on project design to deliver the promise of the school bond enacted by voters. Jerome and his wife and son currently reside in Alamo, California, and their son will be a student in our schools through at least 2038.
As an attorney with a practice primarily working with businesses, Jerome possesses deep understanding of budgetary issues our District faces to provide a safe, supportive learning environment for parents, teachers, and students at all SRVUSD schools.
With this experience, Jerome will know how to support educational needs of teachers and students as well as collaborate with parents and the community to ensure all schools maintain longtime traditions of excellence as well as build on that excellence.
On this website, you can learn more about Jerome’s vision and why so many SRVUSD parents, teachers, community leaders, and graduates support my vision. You can also email me at JCP4SRV@gmail.com. If elected, Jerome pledges to hold monthly “office hours” where he can hear directly from community members about our schools.
Jerome would be honored to receive your vote and to serve as our community’s advocate on our school board.
