Jacob Price has announced he is a candidate for Pulaski County School Board to represent the Cloyd District.

Price is a 1992 graduate of Pulaski County High School.

“After graduation, I enlisted in the U.S. Army and was stationed in Europe and then back home in the U.S. I returned
to Dublin, working in retail sales for both Coke and Pepsi,” he said this week in a press release.
“As a result of 9/11, I decided to return to public service by putting myself through the police academy. I was hired by Sheriff Jim Davis in June 2002. I spent the next 20 years in service to
the Pulaski County Sheriff’s Office. Nine of those years I spent as a school resource officer mainly at Pulaski County High, but also at Snowville Elementary, Riverlawn Elementary, Pulaski Elementary and Pulaski County Middle. Additionally, I worked in the Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court for four years, allowing me yet another perspective,” Price stated.
He added he has also served on various public committees in Pulaski County including the Christmas Store, Youth of Virginia Speak Out, Truancy Prevention Team, Domestic Violence Prevention and the Boys and Girls Club Exploratory Committee, which resulted in the Pulaski County Youth Center.

“Most recently, I served for three years on the Board of Directors for the
Community Health Center of the New River Valley and was directly involved with the opening of the Health Center at PCHS,” Price said.
“I understand the needs of my community residents,” he said. “I can offer a unique perspective on discipline and safety in the schools. I have an established track record of service to our community. It is my belief that every student has a right to a safe and dignified education.
“Therefore, it’s our duty as a community to provide that education. If elected, I pledge to work to
accomplish this. I vow to be transparent and always be available to my community,” Price said.
If elected, Price said he will:
● be true to the wishes of my constituents.
● be a friend to the teachers and support them.
● be an advocate for the parents/guardians.
● strive to ensure that our students’ individual needs are met.
● work to foster a healthy, working relationship between the School Board and the Board of Supervisors
● be a good steward of our community’s budget.
“I humbly ask for your support this November. Thank you,” Price closed.
