In a phrase “I am made in Hayward.” I attended Loren Eden elementary, Moreau High School and graduated from UC Berkeley with a double major. As a UC student, I spent much time assisting high school students with their applications and mentoring incoming freshmen on the ways to be successful. Additionally, I joined the Big Brother organization and I have enjoyed watching my “little” brother become a successful small business owner. Even today, I still mentor students and actively assist them with civic engagement as the Head Advisor for the Hayward NAACP (National Association for the Advancement of Colored People) Youth and College Unit. Moreover, I served two terms on Hayward’s Community Services Commission and I have been appointed to serve as a member of H.A.R.D.’s Measure F1 Oversight Committee. During the week, I work for the Alameda County District Attorney’s Office as a Consumer Mediator

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

My promise to you is to be a strong new voice that vigorously represents Hayward students and schools on the HaywardUSDSchoolBoard.  My goal is to bring fresh, constructive leadership to our local schools.  I am ready and qualified to do this work.   Professionally, I am a consumer mediator with the AlamedaCountyDistrictAttorney'sOfficeI have deep roots in Hayward. I come from a hardworking Hayward family believing that getting a good education leads to success in life.  I attended LorenEdenElementarySchool, MoreauHighSchool, and graduated from UCBerkeley with a double major.  As a UC student I mentored new students.  Later, I served as a “Big Brother”.  Today, I continue to mentor students.  I have public service experience. I’ve served 2 terms on  TheCityofHaywardCommunityServicesCommission and now serve on HARD’s MeasureF1OversightCommittee.  Our current HaywardUSDSchoolBoard hasn’t managed public funding properly, has failed to renovate our school facilities and persists in alienating the community.  I will provide leadership to ensure students get the support needed to properly prepare for college and career success.  I’ll work with the Board to facilitate a more professional and inviting relationship with the public. If you contact me I will respond.  I’m Todd Davis and I’d appreciate your vote.  Thank you.
