Jefferson Parish District 8 - Chad Nugent
A Certified Personal Financial Planner and father of three, Mr. Chad Nugent is determined to bring his astute financial expertise and budgetary knowledge to the Jefferson Parish School Board if elected to serve as representative for District 8. As a father of three active boys who currently attend Jefferson Parish Public Schools, Mr. Nugent was able to relate to many parents of the Endorsement Committee about the need for access to high quality schools for every child in the district.
“As a parent of three children in Jefferson schools, I was very impressed with Chad’s commitment to working with everyone in our community to make sure that all of our students have access to a quality education,” said Stand Parent Endorsement Committee Member Erin Comeaux.
Endorsement Committee Members were also impressed with Mr. Nugent’s sense of urgency around improving struggling schools and his willingness to prioritize district resources to the schools and students who are most in need of the immediate support. As well as prioritizing early learning opportunities and aligning resources to ensure that every child is mastering both Algebra I by 9th grade and reading on level by Grade 3.
As an active member of his church, a volunteer financial planner with the 24th JDC re-entry program and heavily involved in his children’s extra-curricular, it was abundantly clear to Endorsement Committee Members that Mr. Nugent is deeply committed to his community as well.
Early voting will be held from October 23 – 30, Election Day is November 6! To learn more about Stand for Children Louisiana’s Endorsement Process click here.
