Why are you running for office or seeking re-election?
The once proud RCSD is in major trouble. In the last year alone two Board of Education members have jumped ship. Ramapo Central is mired in scandals plastered across the news papers and internet. Over 40 educators were laid off last year and programs for our kids were cut. It is time to elect new leadership with real world experience in managing corporations, allocating assets and dealing with the public sector.

What in your personal, civic or professional experience recommends your election or return to office?

What would be your top three priorities if you are elected or re-elected?
- Restore school staff cuts from 2013 budget.
- Bring additional revenue into the district (Federal, State and Sponsorship Money).
- Improve communication with Parents, Students, Teachers and Staff.
- Reduce class size by hiring new teachers.
- Open lines of communication between the BOE and the community.
