The Caldwell School District is governed by a five-member board of trustees elected from five zones. Trustees elections were recently moved to November of odd years. Those elected take office in January and serve for four years. Each trustee must be a qualified voter in the school district and a resident of the zone he or she represents. Below is when the next elections for school board will be held. Individuals interested in running for a position should confirm that their residence is in the zone (click the link) and then contact the Canyon County Elections Office.

Zone 4 map and details

I was born in Yakima Washington. When I was very young my family moved to Idaho and settled in the Caldwell area where I grew up and received my education. In 1973 I met my future wife, Lori. Together we have had three children Christopher, Lisa and Nicholas. All of our children were born and raised in this community, attended Caldwell schools, graduating from Caldwell High School and the College of Idaho. In 1976 I started my business career in the Building Materials Industry in Caldwell and have continued to work in this trade throughout the treasure valley ever since. In 2011 I was elected to the Caldwell School Board of Trustees. As a trustee I'm proud to serve this community my family has called home for so many years.

My wife, Ann, and I and our three children are proud to say we have lived here in Caldwell going on 15 years. All three of our children attend Caldwell Public Schools and adore their teachers. I teach high school English and Public Speaking in a neighboring district, where I have also coached wrestling and advised student media and other clubs. 


We chose to raise our family in Caldwell because of the small-town feel, but with many of the large-city amenities. Ann has worked for many years on the Caldwell Bikeways and Pathways Committee. Our family regularly serves our faith community. We are strongly committed to building up the people of Caldwell, whoever they may be, and working to make sure we all do a better job of supporting our Latino brothers and sisters. We love you! And we love living in Idaho where there is an emphasis on family, faith, the outdoors, and independence. 


The Caldwell School District continues to make great strides on many fronts. But we’re not there yet. I appreciate the opportunity to continue as trustee for another term in this great city.

We look forward to the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.

I am a lifelong Caldwell resident and have been involved in community service, in various capacities, my entire adult life. I currently serve on the Board of Directors of the Caldwell Housing Authority, serve on the Caldwell Rotary Club and I have worked full-time for local title companies the past thirteen years. I love Caldwell and raised my two children, Miguel and Lucy, here. After working in the schools volunteering over the years, I feel it’s my season to give back, to advocate for the best education for all students in the district. I am excited to serve on the school board and want to ensure that all students and patrons have access to high quality educational opportunities.

Zone 1 map and details

I was born and raised in Caldwell. I attended Caldwell Schools and graduated from Caldwell High. Shortly after I graduated from college I returned to Idaho. My husband and I decided we wanted to raise our family in Caldwell. We have enjoyed being involved in the community and all the wonderful associations we have with friends and family. I believe it is important to be involved and to give service to the community in which you live. I have volunteered in CASA, PTO, cub scouts, youth groups and spent numerous hours helping in my children’s classrooms and watching them participate in various activities. I look forward to serving on the school board and helping our school district continue to move in a positive direction.
