Alexandria Marie Ayala
Alexandria was born in San German, Puerto Rico, and raised in Palm Beach County, Florida. As a resident of the Village of Palm Springs, she attended Palm Springs Elementary, Palm Springs Middle ,and graduated from John I. Leonard High School. As a former Legislative Aide in Tallahassee, Alexandria served constituents and worked on policy issues that impacted Palm Beach County’s families, businesses, and schools. As a community activist, Alexandria has championed causes and issues focused on empowering our communities, supporting women, and increasing voter participation. Now, as a Legislative Aide on our County Commission, Alexandria works each day to address community concerns, form successful partnerships, and support policy initiatives which foster successful programs that will strengthen our neighborhoods.
Alexandria is extremely proud of her Hispanic heritage and is excited at the prospect of becoming the first Latina on the Palm Beach County School Board. Raised by a single mom, early life was tough. Alexandria’s mom, an early childhood educator, pushed her to dream big and challenge herself. Alexandria learned the value of education early on and experienced, firsthand, the challenges families in this district face to ensure their children receive a strong education that prepares them to excel in the 21st century.
Alexandria is running for the Palm Beach County School Board to elevate the voices of the underrepresented, continue building on successful partnerships, and to ensure that each and every child has ample opportunity to succeed.
