My name is Matt Allison and I am running for TUSD School Board Trustee in the November 8, 2022 general election.
My wife and I have lived in Templeton for the last 17 years and we are very fortunate to have all three of our children attend Templeton Schools. We feel so lucky to live here, from our beloved Saturday Farmer's Market to dinner on Main Street, Templeton has just about all we need.
I can often be found coaching youth sports. I have coached youth baseball, soccer, and basketball in Templeton over the last 9 years. I also love to surf, but admittedly, am pretty rusty these days. When at home I like to garden but it seems like most of my time is spent chasing away gophers and opossums.
For the last 18 years I have worked for a large educational company in San Luis Obispo where I currently serve as the Director of Operations. In this role, I direct and oversee operational and logistical aspects of our international organization. Within this capacity, I manage a large budget that extends across many departments and I am on the executive leadership team of the corporation. I am well versed in bringing differing opinions and strategies together to create a common path forward. I feel that all of these skills would suit me well as a member of the TUSD Board.
I have served as Vice-President of the Measure H-12 School Improvement Bond Oversight Committee where we audited and verified the use of the $35 million dollars that Measure H-12 provided to Templeton Schools. I currently serve on the Board of Directors for the Templeton Youth Baseball League and I am a proud alumni of LeadershipSLO which brings together a diverse corps of local leaders to advance the educational, cultural, health, and economic interests of SLO County citizens.
As your TUSD Board Trustee, I promise that I will always be prepared and will actively engage with all stakeholders: parents, teachers, staff, community organizations, and students. I believe we can all do better if we take the time to listen and understand each other's perspectives. I would be grateful to hear from you and learn about the issues that are important to you.
Thank you and remember to VOTE in November!!!
