What qualifies you for this position?
“First and foremost I am an actively involved parent of two children, one in high dchool now and one that will be in two years. I have a strong business background and will bring a proven track record of success. I am in touch with the challenges that children face today and know that I can provide sound leadership and guidance. I am an expert at loss prevention and risk avoidance and can help the district avoid harmful litigation and avoid tarnishing the school’s reputation.”
What is the top issue in your race, and how would you address it?
“The decision to run for office was not one I made lightly. It is something I have wanted to do since my children started school. My problem has always been that until now I wasn’t unsatisfied enough with the current school board to challenge them in an election. My campaign slogan is ‘A Voice for Our Kids’ and I truly mean that. I believe that a good school board is made up of a diverse group of parents, educators, business professionals, and people who are passionate. We don’t have that at our school and I hope voters change that April 7.”
