Board of Directors
Everett Brandon, Vice Chair
Everett Brandon was sworn into office on December 3, 2009, and soon accepted his nomination as Vice Chair. Brandon holds a Juris Doctorate degree and works as a consultant and writer. Although this current tenure marks his first political seat, Brandon has been involved in governmental policy development and education outreach for five decades, as the first President and co-founding Board member of PACT, inc.—a San Francisco based non-profit, which grooms underserved youth and adults for higher education. Brandon aspires to improve Marin City’s overall community development, help expand recreation programs, and strengthen support for senior programs.
Royce McLemore, Director
Royce McLemore is the newest member of the MCCSD Board. She is returning from a short break after serving for 8 years in the past. She’s been the Executive Director and Co-Founder of Women Helping All People for sixteen years, and a community activist for as long as anyone presently living in Marin City can remember. In 1985, the Board of Supervisors’ Housing Authority Commission appointed her a tenant advocate, where she challenged the business-as-usual order and brought about meaningful change on behalf of public housing residents. At great personal risk to herself and her family, she was instrumental in implementing policies that thwarted the negative opportunities presented by local drug pushers. In a predominately beleaguered school district, she has provided the consistent, reliable, and continually supervised Afterschool Safe House Tutorial Program. In addition to raising five children of her own, and providing at-risk children in her community with a safe and secure environment, Royce has made a home for more than 80 foster children, three of whom stayed with her for 8-1/2 years. In 2006, Royce was inducted into the Marin Women’s Hall of Fame.
Nancy Johnson, Chair
Nancy Johnson was sworn into office in 2010. Nancy attended Jackson State University and received a Real Estate designation issued by the National Association of Real Estate. As a Marin County native, Nancy returned home to serve her community. Nancy worked in social services, and in low income housing for over 20 years in Marin County. She decided to join the MCCSD board because there was a need for someone with contract and real estate experience. She worked with the CLC on developing the shopping center. Nancy has served on several boards including chair of The Grassroots Leadership Network, The Marin City Health and Wellness center, and the Marin Interfaith Council.
Belinda Ingraham, Director
