Hi, I'm Kevin Dayton

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.
