Brigadier General John Tree and his family live in Rancho Santa Fe, CA. They previously lived in Manhattan Beach near Los Angeles. Their two youngest children currently attend Roger Rowe (3rd grade and 6th grade). Their remaining children are older, with one at Stanford, an other at the University of Chicago, and the other just graduated from University of Oregon this past June and is now working for the US Air Force.

John and his family love living in the Ranch, and specifically chose their home based on their strong desire to have their two young boys attend R. Roger Rowe schools.

John has served our country for over 30 years as an Air Force officer. He is still in the Air Force Reserves, and currently serves as the Senior Reservist to the Air Force Chief of Staff at the Pentagon. This part-time position enables him to participate at the highest levels of leadership within the Air Force and still be an active member of our community.

John has 8 years of experience serving on the Board of Directors of an $8 billion/year global retailer, the Army and Air Force Exchange Service (AAFES). He spent 4 years on the Audit committee and then 4 more on the Finance Committee. If elected, he will bring this board experience of governance, transparency, and holding the administration accountable with him to the R. Roger Rowe School Board.

John believes the school district needs to provide top quality education for all students, regardless of if they are attending in person or online.  Every effort must be made to be inclusive and accommodate all children, during this Pandemic and beyond.

He is fiscally conservative and believes that the school district should continue its strong heritage of financial strength.
