Bouie, Tony

Meet the Candidate

Running For:
School Board
Deer Valley Unified School District
(480) 336-3901
President & CEO
Biographical Info:

I have been married for over 20 years to my awesome wife, Allison. Allison is a former DVUSD teacher and continues to enjoy teaching our children. Our four children attend school in the district. We have lived in the district since 2001.


I am running for Deer Valley Governing Board because I believe every child deserves the best chance to succeed and every parent has the right to decide what is best for their child. Like you, I have watched our country change almost daily. It is now too close to home. I am here to be a participant in the process. President Ronald Reagan once said, “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.” Our world is changing daily and our best hope for our country is a generation that knows how great America is, understands its past, and protects the freedoms many people have died defending.
