I am running for school board because I want to use my experience and knowledge to make a positive difference in my community, and there is no better place in which to provide public service than the school board.
I believe the school board’s primary concern is to make sure that every child has access to the highest quality education we can provide. I believe our focus should be to ensure our children are able to learn in a safe and secure environment as we prepare them as they move forward to be immediate contributors to a 21st century economy and to allow for the best post-secondary educational opportunities.
Our schools are at a crossroads and public confidence in our school board is low. We need board members who are honest, ethical and accountable. I will help to enforce the highest levels of transparency, and fight to make sure our dollars go directly toward teaching and learning in the classroom, so that every child has the opportunity to learn. I will work within the community to help raise the voices of students, teachers and parents.
