Why should voters choose you in this election?

My oldest son, Champ, graduated from Crestwood High School in 2011. He was diagnosed with cerebral palsy since infancy and has been a constant source of inspiration for me. His struggles in life and throughout his educational experience are a big part of why I initially chose to serve on the school board, encouraging me to continue to improve myself and the system.

A good education is crucial for success in life, and all children deserve access to an effective and fair educational system. I ask you to please consider a vote for me on November 6. I will strive tirelessly and bravely to be a voice for all children, parents and teachers.
