Jeff Boyd – Candidate for Davidson Town Board
Professionally, I currently serve as manager of finance and special projects at E2D: Eliminate the Digital Divide, a Davidson non-profit that provides refurbished computers to low-income families throughout the Carolinas. Also, I run a small boutique travel agency that plans active adventures in South America. Lastly, I own and self-manage several rental townhouses in Davidson.
The social justice cause that most fires me up is human trafficking. I’ve been working on anti-trafficking efforts for more than 20 years, most recently as the Executive Director of a foundation that funded large shelters for vulnerable children in Africa and Latin America.
This is my first foray into politics although I did serve in student government in high school, college, and business school. I’ve always been one to get involved and challenge the status quo. I’m an active leader on two HOA boards in Davidson and have volunteered throughout the years on many local and global issues, most notably human trafficking in Ghana. Locally, I care a lot about access to mental health resources due to personal experience fighting the system on behalf of a family member.
My academic and professional background in business, non-profit administration, project management, and public relations make me well-equipped for this role. My passion for people and service, coupled with my high-energy, get-it-done mentality and the ability to juggle many balls at once while digesting a steady stream of information make me well-suited to represent the people of Davidson.
