Mohamed Baayd is running for Salt Lake City School Board District 5
Baayd, an immigrant from Morocco, took to Facebook to announce his candidacy:
To build a strong and successful society is not easy straight path; however, when we fuel future generations with education, the path becomes easier bit by bit. I am the living testimony of that. Because of education, I was able to lift my self and my family in Morocco from poverty, and build a future for my children. Because of that, I am running for Salt Lake City School Board District 5, to help pave the path of education for every child in my district.
