San Joaquin County Deputy District Attorney Dan Arriola announced his intention to run for the Tracy Unified School District board.
Arriola, 26, who also serves as the Youth Advisory Commissioner for the City of Tracy will seek one of three seats that will be up for election this November.
“It has been a privilege working with young people and local leaders to advocate for education and the youth in our community, but there is still much work to be done,” said Arriola in a written statement. “I am running for (the) Tracy School Board because I know just how challenging it can be to pursue an education and every student deserves the opportunity to succeed.”
Arriola grew up in Tracy and graduated from West High School in 2007. He earned a Bachelor’s Degree from the University of California, Los Angeles in 2011, and a Juris Doctor from the USC Gould School of Law in 2014.
He was featured in a story from former Record reporter Jennie Rodriguez-Moore as the first in his family to attend college. You can read more about him HERE.
