Why should voters choose you in this election?

I'm running so that the students, parents, teachers and bus drivers have a voice on the school board. There are many additions from the school board that focuses on one principle group of students. All students need the same advantages when it comes to education and the ability to get a good job after graduation. All students have aspirations for their future that must be met.

I believe we also have a shortfall in education when it comes to the truant students. Somewhere within the system we are allowing these students to lose the interest in and joy of learning. We need to fix this so we have no more truants in our district.
