Jerome is running 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 that both Jerome and his wife attended. A longtime volunteer for the SRVUSD, Jerome served from 2015 through 2021 on the SRVUSD Facilities Oversight & Advisory Committee, including more than three years as chair. This committee ensures transparency for taxpayers in spending on school campus construction projects and provides recommendations to district leaders on project designs 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 the district.
As an attorney primarily working with businesses, Jerome possesses a deep understanding of budgetary issues the district faces to provide a safe, supportive learning environment for parents, teachers, and students at all SRVUSD schools. With this experience, Jerome also 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.
