As a parent, I know the Dysart Schools will benefit greatly from William Coniam. Our students, families, and educators are looking for leaders to unite us around a shared vision of high-quality neighborhood schools for our students in Dysart. As public schools struggle with declining involvement, lower enrollment, and budget deficits, it’s critical that our board includes members who carefully consider upcoming decisions to address these problems. I am confident that a vote for him is a vote for our children's future.
As a past president of the Arizona PTA, the largest and oldest child advocacy association in the state, I have had the unique opportunity to work with a variety of voices across Arizona who care about the future of public schools. T. William Coniam is one of the finest men I have been fortunate to meet. He makes decisions based on what is best, not what is popular. William digs in, works hard, and makes himself available to anyone who cares about Dysart and its future. A vote for T. William Coniam is a step to improving the quality of education in Dysart, ensuring we attract and retain high quality teachers, and ensures our children have the best opportunities available. He has distinguished himself as a Marine veteran, a proud parent, and someone who won’t back down to bullies. Dysart needs T. William Coniam and he deserves your vote.
I met William during the 2015 successful Dysart Override. I observed how hard he worked on behalf of students. He is a tremendous asset within the Dysart community. He is thoughtful, professional and informed through researching issues. He looks at issues rationally and critically rather than emotionally. I'm supporting Mr. Coniam for the Dysart Governing Board and encourage you as well in supporting William.
William Coniam has been our neighbor for over 8 years. We have got to know him as a father and as a friend. He and his family welcomed us into the new neighborhood with open arms. We have watched Will raise his children in this Surprise community. And when his kids started going to school he became proactive to help not only his kids but the entirety of the children in our Dysart school district to be provided with the best of education that they provide. Will is a straight forward type of guy. He speaks the truth and executes what he speaks. He is passionate not only about his kids education career but the future generations to come. Voting for William Coniam would be the best for our district and our children.

Rodel Exemplary Teacher
I am supporting T. William Coniam for the Dysart School Board. I have known William for many years, and am very impressed with the kind of person he has become. He is a hard worker, a strong family man, and has shown support for this District by vigorously campaigning for the last override, attending and speaking at school board meetings, and staying involved in his children’s elementary school. He works diligently to support the students and teachers in this district. He listens and asks questions before making his decisions or forming his opinion on subjects. He would be a desperately needed positive voice on the Dysart School Board, and an asset to the community as a whole. I am thrilled that he is running!
Retired Dysart Teacher
After reading about me and the statements from others above, if you are still not convinced, I encourage you to ask community leaders about me.
Talk to those that are active and involved with Dysart schools (PTA members, teachers, volunteers, etc.) or involved in the City (city council members current and past, business leaders, etc.). Many have come to know me through my years of service to the community. These individuals often don't want to "formally endorse" any candidates, but ask them for their candid, personal thoughts about who to vote for.
