How will you bring about change and improvement to the school district?

  • I plan on bringing fresh ideas and concerns to the board.  I have held chairs and been the chairman on numerous committees within Corporate America.  I realize one person cannot be the sounding board for the whole Board.  Every person elected to the School Board has an obligation to make the best decision for all involved, students, staff, and taxpayers.  This means at times one may not agree with the other Board Members but has a responsibility to speak up, don’t just agree and go with the majority.
