Why should I vote for you?

I bring the experience and skills necessary for successful stakeholder collaboration.

I bring the critical thinking skills necessary to make decisions that will have a positive impact on students for years to come.

I bring the fierce commitment to public education necessary to advocate on behalf of all students.

 

Your main goal if elected?
