WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. -

A former porn star from Boca Raton is looking to land a new role in the education field. 

David Mech, known as David Pounder in the porn industry, wants to become a school board member. The 38 year-old has qualified for the Palm Beach County School Board's District 3 seat. 

A few years ago Mech began a math tutoring business.  Signs of his business were posted at area schools, but were later removed after parents complained. 

Mech has since filed a lawsuit suing the district.

According to The Palm Beach Post, Mech will be up against incumbent board member Karen Bill.  Bill made headlines for proposing a dress code for parents.
