Why I’m running:
Children First. My experience as a public school teacher, two-term elected school board member and former corporate executive will assist the board in developing district policy that increases academic achievement for all children. I will also tirelessly lobby the state to increase classroom funding and improve the working conditions of our hard working teachers and support personnel.
