Vernon Taylor, a 15-year resident and volunteer announced his candidacy for the Culver City School Board on August 14, 2013. In a statement released by a committee spokesperson, Mr. Taylor cites his ambition of advocating for all children within Culver City Schools as a personal priority. He believes it is a privilege to serve and affirm his commitment to all stakeholders and youth of the Culver City School District.
“As a concerned parent and longtime resident of Culver City, my priority is to focus all school board actions and decisions on how the needs and best interests of Culver City’s students can be ensured, improved and supported. I believe the focus has to be on continuing to build schools of excellence and equity while producing students that are well equipped for future success. The goals must be accomplished in consideration of the limited resources available and the efficient stewardship of the resources provided by the public. I believe my professional experience and community leadership have prepared me to make the decisions necessary to keep our district efficient and effective in pursuit of the educational excellence of our schools.”
Mr. Taylor is a bank executive and over the years has served the city as a volunteer advisor and committee member on issues ranging from planning to redevelopment and finance. He is a past two-term School Site Council member (El Rincon and the Middle School) and volunteer youth mentor and coach with the Culver – Palms Family YMCA. He also has served as a Key-Three Executive and District Commissioner for the Boy Scouts of America Crescent Bay District. He and his wife have three sons (two are Eagle Scouts), all of whom have attended Culver City schools.
There will be an opportunity to meet the candidate on Sunday, August 25th from 4 to 7 pm at a fundraiser reception being held at the home of Greg Rogers and Shannon Gaulding at 4418 Jasmine Ave. Please plan to come out and meet the candidate and lend your support and vote to the election of Vernon L.
