Jim Gibson

Jim Gibson is the longest-serving member of the board, having served since 1998. The former Marine Corps captain owns Nova Voice and Data Systems, a technology company located in Oceanside.


Gibson has lived near Roosevelt Middle School in eastern Oceanside for the last 20 years. He represents Trustee Area 3, the eastern portion of the district.


He said he's on the board to look out for students as well as taxpayers.

“I want to raise the quality of education for students and make sure that the funds are being spent wisely,” he said.

Increasing the use of technology, science and math is another priority, he said.
