Re-elect John Smoak

Dr. John Smoak has worked tirelessly for children throughout his career. For the past six years, John has done a wonderful job as a member on the Nevada County Board of Education. I have served with John and firmly believe that he deserves your vote.

John has been elected President of the board because his fellow board members hold him in high esteem due to his vast knowledge of youth-related issues, his firm grasp of fiscal matters and his compassion for at-risk youth.

John was assistant superintendent in the Sacramento City Unified School District. He understands complex legal issues and gives 100 percent as a board member. I urge Nevada County voters to re-elect Dr. John Smoak to the Nevada County Board of Education.

Member, Nevada County Board of Education
