SAN FRANCISCO, Sept. 28, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The editor of The San Mateo Daily Journal resoundingly endorsed Gregory J. Dannis for re-election to the Hillsborough City School District Board of Trustees, noting that Dannis's lifelong dedication to public schools representing districts across the state on finance, labor relations, personnel, bonds and litigation "is a resource without peer." The Hillsborough School Board currently has four people running for the two board positions and according to the editors, Dannis is clearly the preferred choice. During his time on the board, the district has completed more than $66 million in school renovations, many of which have made the district a model for others to follow. "He is in tune with the district issues, but also brings a strong sense of best practices from other areas," the editor said in the September 14 issue.
Dannis is the president and a named Shareholder in the law firm Dannis Woliver Kelley, California's premiere education law firm. "All of the attorneys at the firm are very passionate about California education," he said. "Even after advising boards for over 30 years, actually serving as a board member has given me a new level of insight into what boards face on a daily basis. I look forward to continuing my tenure on the Hillsborough School Board," Dannis said. DWK's Managing Shareholder Janet Mueller expressed her delight at the strong endorsement of Greg's candidacy. "Greg's position on the Hillsborough School Board not only makes a positive contribution to Hillsborough, but it makes DWK a stronger firm. The experience and insights Greg has gained during his tenure with the Hillsborough Board have provided many invaluable learning opportunities for DWK lawyers. Our advocacy of public education throughout California is stronger for it."
