Why should voters choose you in this election?
It is my desire to further develop my vision for a public education system that stimulates community growth, gives parents choices, empowers teachers through technology and innovation, inspires children to succeed, and encourages character values, within a safe learning environment, in a fiscally conservative manner.
Over the past four years, I have demonstrated my strengths of vision, consistency, and pragmatism as our Board has faced a looming state education funding crisis and fiscal cliff as a result of the "Great Recession." In our District, with my help, we have successfully navigated through the most drastic state budget cuts in history while maintaining the balance between quality education and budget constraints.
