Rev. Darryl Vaughn Footmon
I am running for Peekskill school board because I am passionate about the importance of every child having a good opportunity to advance and become positive contributors to our local and global society. In my years of public service, I have devoted many as a Community Affairs Officer and coordinating the Youth Law Enforcement Explorers as well as in ministry seeking to encourage, aide and empower others. I believe that our children should be inspired and supported to be exceptional students!
