I’m a resident of Monterey, married, and a Dad to two great kids now at Monterey High School. I’ve spent more than 29 years analyzing public policy problems and proposing strategies and solutions to benefit the public good. We’re in a time when our local school district needs leaders with extensive experience and knowledge about the fundamental challenges it faces, particularly with declining enrollment. I’m eager to help if the people of Monterey choose to vote for me in the upcoming election.

Public policy consultant Kevin Dayton, who’s running against Miramontes and former Monterey Councilwoman Nancy Selfridge for the Trustee Area 3 seat, has expressed support for the Monterey High project in social media and on his campaign website.
One school board candidate, Kevin Dayton, has tweeted that he strongly supports the lighting project and refers to lighting studies cited by project opponents as “junk science.” He also accuses project opponents of abusing California environmental quality statutes.
Dayton, 50, has two kids at Monterey High School and his wife is a former high school teacher. Dayton is the son of two retired elementary school teachers. He’s a public policy consultant with 29 years of experience in policy strategy and analysis. Dayton is the chair of the MPUSD Citizens Bond Oversight Committee and the Measure P Committee for the district.
When asked what issue is the most important the board faces, Dayton said his No. 1 issue is increasing district enrollment, trying to reverse the 36% enrollment decline over the past 30 years.
“My other top issues are balancing the budget, keeping the district desirable for military families, and increasing teacher recruitment and retention rates,” Dayton said. “Also, I support lights at the Monterey High School football fields.”
Dayton said he supports the district’s plans to safely reopen when cases decline and county and state regulations allow students back in the classroom.
“Once the infection rate in Monterey County starts to decline, the district already has a plan to gradually transition toward some in-person educational activity using a ‘hybrid’ virtual/in-person model. I support that plan,” he said. “But until then, there is excessive risk that a few students who inevitably defy health guidelines may end up responsible for spreading the virus to parents, teachers, and the community-at-large.”
