CA Superintendent of Public Instruction (Former)
"As someone who has been deeply involved in education for many years, I believe the Davis Innovation & Sustainability Campus can be a significant boon to education in Davis and the region. In addition to the $1.33 million in school assessments and bond levies to provide annually to the Davis Joint Unified School District, the project can create considerable opportunities to improve the human capital of DJUSD students through internships, jobs, and private-public partnerships."
