Brian Phelps  

Senior Director/Business Development Specialist   831-332-1559    Age: 52      

Born and raised in Santa Cruz County, I have a deep understanding of our community.  As a father of four children and two grandchildren, I have a passion for constant improvements of our schools. My roots in Soquel span three generations.  My father attended Soquel Elementary School. I attended Santa Cruz Gardens Elementary and my youngest daughter attended Soquel Elementary. Over the years I’ve worked closely with the teachers within the district and an active volunteer at many fundraising events. Professionally, I’ve been the Vice President of several local high-tech companies over a thirty-year career. One of my strongest skills is the ability to understanding complex problems and finding the most reasonable solution. I’m also trained and skilled in active listening and conflict resolution. This makes it easy for me to create a healthy rapport and create a consensus when working with others. When I am not working I enjoy coaching Judo and organizing community activities and fundraising events.

As parents, it’s important for us to understand the actions of the Soquel Union Elementary School District, therefore I’m for open School Board meetings and constant communication. I am committed to working closely with parents, teachers and board members to inspire our children for a lifetime of active learning and achievement.  Vote for Brian Phelps.
