David M. Hamm – Board of Education

OBJECTIVE:
In order to be a successful servant for the citizens of Chatham County as a School Board Member, I first ask my Lord, Jesus Christ, to bless me with wisdom, strength, courage, and understanding of the awesome responsibility that comes with the position. Second, I ask for support of the parents, students, and community in working together to make our schools in Chatham County successful institutions of learning for every student. Third, and not least, I ask for the support of my family to undergird me as a School Board Member to boldly face the 21st century challenges of our ever changing and growing school system.

BELIEFS:
Put student’s needs first
Treat all areas of the county equally
Increase supplements for all staff
Correct the salary schedules for support staff
Improve signing bonuses for first year teachers
Use existing space before building new schools
