Candidate for Board of Education at Large

I am running to be your At-Large Board of Education member because the one size fits all approach does not work and has not worked especially for our black and brown students.

Are You Ready To Take The Next Step And Support Darwin?

About Darwin Romero

I am a long-time resident of Montgomery County and a product of MCPS having gone to Takoma Park Middle School and Montgomery Blair High School. Afterwards, I continued my studies at the University of Maryland College Park where I received a bachelor’s degree in Mathematics and Economics.

I am originally from El Salvador and a proud father of two boys that attend Montgomery County Public Schools in the Down County Consortium.

And currently, I work as a senior loan officer helping families create generational wealth through the acquisition or refinance of real estate. I help with structuring loans for first time home buyers, as well as seasoned investors, to help them attain their financial goals. 

I love to help people and would like to ensure that all our students reach their full potential. I understand that the success of our County hinges on how well prepared our students are to meet the needs of the future workforce. I am vested in our community and I want to see our students succeed both in academia and in life. In my spare time you will find me reading, traveling, and spending time with family and friends.

Vision, Issues, & Values

Darwin Romero envisions a school system that celebrates diversity at all levels, engages students in the learning process, and creates growth opportunities for all students. Every student is unique and we need to celebrate that.

In the first four years I will focus to increase diversity, build alliances and partnerships, and create opportunities.

Help us reach our goal to elect Darwin Romero as our next Board of Education at-large member by giving of your time, energy, and financial resources.

Registration Ends May 27








Increase Diversity: We need more teachers who look like the students they serve; we need more administrators who truly  understand the cultural differences and are sensitive to the needs of our diverse student body; and we need to redefine what success looks like and how we deliver the curriculum.

Build Alliances and Strategic Partnerships: Our school system is located in a County that attracts both large and small businesses that make a difference in our communities every day. We need to partner with them to better prepare the future workforce of Montgomery County in the areas of science, technology, marketing and entrepreneurship. These partners will provide real work experience that will give our students a competitive advantage.

Create Equal Opportunities: We need to provide access to thought leaders that will inspire and lead our youth to starting their own companies or finding a cure to Alzheimer’s disease. We need to fuel their creativity by providing them with an equal playing field so they can see beyond what is in front of them and that allows them to connect with the global community and gain a greater perspective of what they are capable of accomplishing.
