Why should voters choose you in this election?
Voters should choose me because I feel I bring a balance perspective to the position of School Board Trustee. I have two children who attend Lexington One. My son is currently a senior at Lexington High School; my daughter is in the eighth grade at Pleasant Hill Middle School. My wife is also an assistant principal at Pleasant Hill Middle School.
I became involved in the education world when my son started attending PHMS in 2006. I served on the School Improvement Council and served as chairman twice. I also served on the 2008 School/ Community Facilities Study Committee, where a large group of citizens met to discuss and plan the direction of the infrastructure needs of Lexington School District One. We are currently in a five-year building phase, which was approved by the voters in our district. I have also served on the Government Relations Committee and the Superintendents Parent Advisory Council. In 2008, I offered my services to serve as a substitute teacher. Although I no longer do this, it gave me great perspective into the needs of teachers and students alike.
