Greetings! My name is Greg Coladonato, and I am running for a seat on the Mountain View-Whisman School District Governing Board for the 2014-2018 term. I am the father of three public primary school students, live in Mountain View, and am passionate about improving our public schools.
Over the last several years, I have served the Mountain View-Whisman School District as
- the Chair of the Measure G Citizen's Bond Oversight Committee, since its founding in October 2012.
- a member of the Measure C Parcel Tax Oversight Committee, where I cast several lone dissenting votes when I believed the district was not spending parcel tax money appropriately
- a member and the secretary of the Board Facilities Committee
- the liaison from my children's elementary school, Stevenson PACT, to the district GATE committee
I am also involved in my local community, as the President of the Slater Neighborhood Association, and have advocated for the re-opening of one of the two public schools in our neighborhood which are currently closed.
Academically, I earned degrees in Computer Science and Applied & Engineering Physics from Cornell University, and an MBA from The Wharton School. I am a life-long learner, and strive to inspire curiosity in my children and all the children I come in contact with.
In addition to my school district and neighborhood roles, I also serve as the Chair of the City of Mountain View's Human Relations Commission.
