First elected to the board at-large in 2016 and then again to represent the east side's Area 5 in 2018 upon DUSD's conversion to district-based trustee elections, Cherrier lists on his campaign website top priorities including transparency, financial accountability and the completion of the new Emerald High School.

"I was elected on a platform of excellence in education and wise spending to match," Cherrier said in a statement issued on his campaign website. "My record is clear and consistent. (I am) in support of a comprehensive second high school."

Cherrier is being challenged in Area 5 by Sameer Hakim, who was previously appointed to the DUSD Board of Trustees and served in 2015 and 2016. The incumbent declined an interview request from the Weekly.

A longtime resident of Dublin, Cherrier works as a civil engineer with a specialty in transportation. With the school district, he has held the role of president of the board since December 2019, when his fellow board members voted him for the position. Cherrier has also previously sat on committees such as the DUSD Citizen Bond Oversight Committee and District Optimization Committee.

Other issues important to Cherrier's campaign, according to his website, are addressing school overcrowding and increasing districtwide funding.

"Dublin Unified is a great school district focused on building a strong foundation for our children's success," Cherrier said in a 2018 ballot statement also posted online. "I have consistently voted for additional resources for the second high school, voted for greater accountability and control of our limited funding sources."
