Candidate Statement


Sacramento County Voter Guide Statement

High quality and responsive education, and the policies that promote these goals, have always been a passion of mine. I have 23 years of education policy experience, including the drafting of education laws, negotiating K-12 state budgets, creating and working for education nonprofits, enhancing workforce opportunities, and volunteering with school PTAs. Currently, I serve as President of the Folsom Cordova PTA Council.


My priorities as a school board member, will be to fight for enhanced school safety, smaller class sizes, greater STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) programming, local business apprenticeships & internships, after school programs, transparency in school policy, improved career training opportunities, and enhanced local control at the district and school levels. 


My wife Karen and I are the proud parents of three Folsom Cordova students; Jackson (9thgrade), Connor (7thgrade), and Logan (5thgrade). My name is Dave Reid and I would be honored to receive your vote for FCUSD School Board. Our children are our future. We can never be satisfied with the status quo. We can and must always do better. For more information, please visit or contact me at or (916) 903-6031.
