If elected inNovember, I have many specific areas of pertinent interest including:
helping the school district aptly evaluate and make sound and financially prudent decisions in the bestinterests of the student in congruence with community resources;
being a local representative to link the school district with the overall opinions and concerns of thecommunity;
to advocate for a strong system of student achievement based upon individualized student needs foroptimal success and achievement;
AND to advocate for drug education and bully prevention programming within the school district.
