Why are you running for Re-Election?
As a passionate advocate for education, I believe that every student deserves access to quality education that will prepare them for success in life. Despite the progress our district has made, we still face many challenges. I am running because we still have work to do! I want to continue to be a voice for students, families, and the community. I want to advocate for policies and practices that ensure every student has the opportunity to reach their full potential.
