Why I’m running:
In order to be effective in a position of influence concerning the welfare of our children, one must possess a 360-degree view of the system and its impact. Acquiring that view requires years of observation, activism, commitment and unselfishness. Over the last several years, I have been advocating for our schools in both private and public settings in order to unite our community around the public schools in Buncombe County.
