Al Galvez, president of the Madera Unified School District Board of Trustees, has announced he will run for a seat on the Madera County Board of Supervisors, representing District 2, in the June 2018 election.
David Rogers of Chowchilla now holds that seat.
In making his announcement, Galvez posted on his website, “It’s time to drain the swamp and change course. A county supervisor’s job isn’t to run for the next office on your dime, live high on the hog, and be a smooth-talking politician. District 2 deserves leadership; someone who puts you FIRST! As president of the Madera Unified School Board, I helped lead the school district to solid financial ground and improve its leadership. I’m willing to make the tough decisions.”
Galvez’ platform includes providing “professionalism, engagement, and genuine, effective and dedicated leadership.”
Galvez ran unopposed in 2014 for his seat on the MUSD board of trustees. He is in his second consecutive term as president. Prior to coming on the MUSD Board, Galvez served on the Madera County Board of Education.
