Jonathan Richardson, who is serving on the Mayor’s Commission on Crime for Fairfield, is running for Trustee Area 5 on the Fairfield-Suisun School District – and says he would have sought office if the elections were still at-large rather than by district.
“I’m committed to the community, not just a neighborhood,” he said.
The new geographic trustee areas, Richardson said, provide a balance of responsibility for representation by school board members.
Richardson, 33, an officer with the California Department of Corrections, spoke about working with students in the school district as a volunteer over the past 11 years. His work has included coaching track at Rodriguez High School.
