What qualifies you for this position?
“I put a high value on education and a high willingness to listen and talk to people. My current job requires me to work with multiple stakeholders, including engineers, finance, business operations, and government customers. I work with these stakeholders to plan estimates and budgets as well as to help review processes and assist with planning.”
What is the top issue in your race, and how would you address it?
“We have a good district but we can always continue to improve. There are small changes I would like to see to improve communication and re-engage with the community. Changes like classroom visits by board members, town halls and better utilization of technologies like podcasts to get information out. Listening to stakeholders ideas can only help improve. Better engagement with the community can lead to more understanding of the decisions made and lead to improved communication, transparency and fiscal responsibility so we can continue to deliver a quality education for all students.”
