I value the time that I have spent as a SchoolTrustee and as the Chair of the Board of Education.

I believe that my business and family background are assets that have helpedguide my decisions at the board table.

 

Your main goal if elected?

My main goal if elected is to provide the best possible education for all students.  That goal should be the focus of our budget and policy decisions. We have had great success with our graduation rates, but there is more to do. Our students get one chance at education. For each of them, our decisions today are critical.
