Roger L. Snyder
For Scotts Valley Unified School Board Member – Short term

Occupation: Product Management Consultant                                                                   Age: 48

Sixteen years ago my wife Michele and I moved here in large part because of the high quality public schools.  All four of our daughters “graduated” from Vine Hill, and today we have one off to college, two at SVHS, and one at the Middle School. 

To support our schools, I have been a chaperone on countless field trips, and helped paint, build, and hammer where needed.  I have been an active volunteer with the Scotts Valley Educational Foundation since 2009, and currently serve as Board Secretary.

I also helped pass both Measure K and Measure A – leading the voter marketing efforts, walking precincts, and making phone calls.

Professionally, I have led cross-functional teams for over 15 years.  This experience, tied with my Engineering degree and MBA, allow me to understand issues well, communicate effectively, and collaborate to solve tough problems.

I am running to help build a safe, friendly, productive environment that both reflects the unique character of our community and prepares our students to be successful in the 21st century. 

If elected, I will put our students first, serving you and them with integrity, thoughtfulness, and hard work. I would be honored to receive your vote.
