Why are you running for office or seeking re-election?
Want to continue the good work of the Board after hiring a new superintendent. It takes most of the first term to become well-versed in school board matters. I now have the expertise to contribute in a more meaningful way during a second term.

What in your personal, civic or professional experience recommends your election or return to office?
I have the time to devote to the important work of a school board. My background in finance and investments is a benefit to the taxpayer as well as the school district.

What would be your top three priorities if you are elected or re-elected?
We need to continue our advocacy efforts so we can provide an outstanding education in the face of mandated costs and programming. The work we are doing on the District/'/s Strategic Plan will shape the next several years and guide our curriculum. The Board/'/s communication efforts and cooperation with the community will continue to grow. The benefits have already been substantial.
