Y’all spoken here – That’s a phrase that many longtime Southwest Floridan residents will remember Jada delivering at the end of her parent’s auto dealership commercials. Having been the spokesperson for Langford Ford for 23 years, we watched Jada grow up right in front of us on our TV screens.
Jada graduated from Florida Gulf Coast University with a bachelor’s degree in elementary education. Her educational experience coupled with her passion to see kids grow and develop academically led her to a 20-year career in the classroom as a teacher. Unfortunately, policies and dysfunction within the Lee County School District drove her away from the classroom and into the private sector. During her more than 5 years of corporate experience, Jada developed a strong understanding of managing budgets, increasing productivity, and making the difficult decisions that are necessary to make a business successful. Her experience and successes in corporate America prepared her for her next endeavor as an entrepreneur. Jada is a physical fitness trainer who helps high school athletes and individuals from all walks of life meet their fitness goals.
Jada is running for the Lee County School Board to bring the education of our children back to the forefront of the district’s priorities. She is determined to change the current culture and put parents and taxpayers back in charge of our schools. For too long, the bureaucracy led by liberal special interests have dominated the decision-making process, and Jada aims to put that practice to an end. She will reestablish trust and accountability between the district and the taxpayers and families of Lee County.
A 7th generation Floridian, Jada’s roots run deep in Southwest Florida. A native of LaBelle, Jada and her husband Matt are raising her 3 children in Ft Myers. In her spare time, she enjoys volunteering with youth sports, spending time with her family, and enjoying Southwest Florida’s waterways.
Jada On The Issues
They Work For You
Reining In The Budget
Changing The Culture
Education Not Indoctrination
End The Tax
Jada will fight to put an end to the half cent sales tax brought forth by the current board. Our school district never had a revenue problem, it had a self-created spending problem. This irresponsible tax was pushed on us with misinformation through a campaign of smoke and mirrors and Jada is determined to repeal the tax.
