2010 Debbie Jones | School Board
|My name is Debbie Jones and I am running for Wasatch School Board. I am married to Chad Jones and am the daughter of Karen Mair and the late Dick Davis. I am the mother of six and have five grandchildren.
I want everyone to understand why I'm qualified to run for the school board seat and what I plan to do if elected.
Kristine Nichols has been an amazing member of the school board for the past four years. I've worked with her on committees, talked to her many times about school issues and it would be an honor to pick up where she leaves off. I believe she will continue to volunteer her time and energy in promoting education for her children and others in our valley.
I have time in my life, now, to serve in this position. It would not have worked for me when I had children in the school system, only because I wanted to be involved in a more personal level in the schools with my children, and enjoyed supporting them in all they did with extra-curricular activities. The youngest of my six children is a senior at Wasatch High School this year.
I am experienced and have been involved in education as a parent, teacher, business owner, coach and volunteer the past 30 years.
I hope voters will take the time to vote and consider giving me a chance to make a difference.
