WASHINGTON-- Our Revolution on Thursday endorsed Gina Perez for the Ames School District Board of Directors.
“Gina Perez embodies the kind of innovation needed now more than ever at the local level,” said Our Revolution President, U.S. Senator Nina Turner. “Our Revolution is excited to endorse such a qualified and passionate candidate for the Ames School District Board. Gina is committed to expanding access and opportunity throughout the community, and she is starting by investing where it matters most-- schools.”
With over sixteen years of experience working in state government and information technology, Gina Perez is focused on bringing creativity and strong leadership to the Ames School District Board of Directors. Perez comes from a long line of educators and public servants-- and with two children currently enrolled in the Ames School District, her desire to get involved is all the more personal.

Perez will advocate for better wages and benefits for teachers, as well as foster a more inclusive learning community by working to expand opportunities for special education programs and confront racial disparities in the school system.
