Our District needs long-term community members who appreciate the need for every student to have options when they graduate able to build a good life. I have been serving the Renton community where we have lived for the last 22 years and my wife, Mona. Together, we feel this is my next step in helping make Renton a better place, and I have waited to run for School Board since I appreciate all the work others have done.


Over the past many years, I have served on PTA at Renton Park Elementary as well as Lindbergh Boosters where we have raised significant monies to support the vision of LHS administration by rebuilding the program from scratch. I have served on the Renton Municipal Arts Commission working on both the placement of fine art as well as performance art at the Carco Theater. And, I have been the committee chairperson starting Renton Young Life in 2014 reaching “the furthest out kid” helping to build healthy Renton families. Never before have we been in a stronger place to influence our multi-cultural community and represent our friends and neighbors.


I promise that I will work tirelessly for the success of all our children.

Occupation: Early Learning Program Manager, 15 years experience working in Education

Serving families, advocating for teachers, and fighting for high quality education for all is my passion. I have dedicated my professional career to empowering children, challenging the status quo, and demanding educators receive the respect they have earned.


The youngest members of our community deserve to be valued and celebrated, learning in a community which is safe, nurturing, and honors the whole child.  My mission is to ensure all children have equal access to education, starting right here in our own community.  Joining the Renton School Board will help me in achieving this goal.


Through my 15 years experience working directly with children/ families in an educational setting, I truly understand the needs we are failing to meet.  While our lowest-income families may be supported by various state and federally funded programs, our middle-income families are left without affordable options for care. The cost of quality early childhood education and after school care is a detrimental burden and understandably cannot be prioritized over basic household needs.


Scientific evidence suggests long-term education outcomes are determined by early childhood success. Unfortunately, birth-to-five programs are undervalued and under-funded. Through strong advocacy and teamwork I know we can do better. Vote Deskin for change!
