Education and Experience

Dean Paterakis is not like the other candidates running for School Committee Seat 5.  Dean has worked hard his whole life to earn the opportunity to run for local office.  He is not a career politician and was not given the opportunity to run because of who he knows or what he can do for other business owners.

Integrity and honesty is at the core of everything Dean does at home or work.  He wants to bring this same passion to the Brevard County School System to make it a better place for our children.  Dean knows investing in our children’s future is investing in our community’s future.

Dean’s professional and volunteer experience makes him the perfect candidate for seat 5
