MAYOR BRONIN NOMINATES DAVID JIMENEZ TO BOARD OF EDUCATION

HARTFORD, CONN (March 4, 2020) – Today Mayor Luke Bronin nominated Hartford attorney and member of the Connecticut Board of Regents for Higher Education David Jimenez to serve on the Hartford Board of Education.  Jimenez is a principal in the Hartford office of the law firm Jackson Lewis, where he serves as Co-Chair of the Corporate Governance practice group.  He is a past president and board member of the Hartford County Bar Foundation, and he also served for two years as a liaison to the American Bar Association’s National Commission on Racial and Ethnic Diversity in the legal profession.  His nomination is subject to confirmation by the Hartford City Council.

“With his experience on the Connecticut Board of Regents, David Jimenez will bring an important perspective to the Board of Education as we work to build strong connections and pathways between the school system and higher learning,” said Mayor Bronin.  “David also has extensive experience in the governance of large organizations as an attorney, and that will be valuable to the Board of Education as well.  He is also deeply committed to the community, volunteering his time to serve a number of Hartford institutions, and I am proud to nominate him to this important position.”

“I am honored to bring my experience serving on the Connecticut Board of Regents and as an attorney to the Board of Education,” said David Jimenez.  “Education has been a passion of mine for a long time because I know from my own experience how it can transform lives.  The Superintendent and the Board of Education are pursuing important reforms through the District Model for Excellence, and I am looking forward to working with them to make our schools the best they can be.”

Jimenez’s law practice includes representing publicly traded corporations on various matters including organizational compliance, internal investigations, and other matters.  In November of 2014, Mr. Jimenez was appointed by Governor Malloy to serve on the Connecticut Board of Regents for Higher Education, which oversees Connecticut’s seventeen universities and community colleges serving over 90,000 students. 

Jimenez also serves as the current President of the Board of Directors of The Hartford Stage Company.  He is a former Trustee of The Mark Twain House & Museum.  He received his law degree from Hofstra University School of Law, and his bachelor’s degree in Economics from the University of Texas.
