Experience in Political or Related Positions: Current Vice-President PTO at Pomaria Garmany Elementary and Mid-Carolina Middle Schools, have served as Chairman of the School Improvement Council at Pomaria Garmany Elementary (2 years), served on the Newberry County redistricting committee in 2009.

Why should voters choose you in this election?  I am committed to not raising taxes and being good stewards of the revenue we're entrusted with by targeting maximum dollars to the classroom.

The taxpayers deserve more fiscal discipline and accountability in all areas of government and my experience, background and previous leadership positions have demonstrated that I'm not a rubber stamp leader but one who insists on those characteristics.
