David Schwartz announced he is seeking to serve a fourth term as the District 5 representative on the Bryan County Board of Education.

Schwartz, who has served on the school board since 2010, said he believes leadership and experience matter “as our school system continues through the challenge of ongoing growth.”


“Like most families my wife and I moved to Bryan County for its school district,” Schwartz said in his announcement. “For 24 years we have lived in Richmond Hill and raised our children. My two oldest children have graduated from Richmond Hill High School, one daughter currently is  in high school and we have grandchildren in our schools. I have volunteered with the South Bryan Recreation Department coaching basketball, soccer and currently high school girls volleyball. I have been active in church helping FBC with its Upward program coaching and refereeing.”

As District 5’s representative since 2010, Schwartz said he has “always been proud to support Bryan County tradition of strong public schools. My goal has been to be present and active in the community so that I understand the concerns of our parents and the needs of our students.”


He continued: “As a long supporter of our teachers and staff I have voted for all recent pay increases for systems employees. While we have not had a millage rate increase in 13 years, we have continued to provide academic excellence that exceeds all the other surrounding schools districts. I have also been a strong supporter of efforts to improve opportunities for students to be prepared to directly enter the workforce.  We have added career and technology education opportunities at the high school level so that students can have exposure to career opportunities and build real life skills.  My desire is to support and expand these opportunities for our students.”


Schwartz ended by thanking voters for their support “over the years. “


"I hope you will allow me to continue to serve District Five on the Bryan County Board of Education.”
