Three candidates seek a Fairfield-Suisun School District seat in the wake of incumbent Kathy Marianno’s decision not to run again for the school board she’s served on since 2003.
Spencer Marks, Bethany Smith and Mike Wright are running in Trustee Area 1 that covers most of Suisun City. Trustees are now elected by area.
Marks, 29, said he took an oath in 2007 to serve when he joined the U.S. Army.
“It has no expiration date,” he said of serving.
“It’s my duty to my daughter and my family,” Marks said.
A parent, as well as a student at Holy Names University in Oakland where he is studying international relations and biology, Marks served in the Army from 2007-14.
