1. How will you address your top three priorities for the position?
Reducing the School Board's and superintendent's budgets; improving relationships between parents and the district; and establishing concrete, pro-active strategies to improve learning. I will not allow the continued waste of valuable time, dollars and resources in this district.
2. Why should people vote for you?
I will reduce the board's budget, limit out-of-state travel for upper-level administrators and expose and end this district's outrageous spending habits. I will restore integrity and honesty to the board, or step down if I fail. Your child's teacher will be voting for me; I hope you will, too.
