What will be your top priorities if you are elected?

I will set goals of passing scores for all third grade students. I will also audit the district for efficiency and eliminate expenditures that detract from students’ academic achievement, like the Office of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion. I will work to fire the superintendent and organize the new board into subcommittees of three members each and hire a new superintendent selected by the board of trustees.

What uniquely qualifies you for this position?

I have a master’s degree in mechanical engineering and many decades of successful high-tech work designing and solving complex systems. I am the only candidate running for school board in any place elected twice to office, and I have used that experience to pursue extraordinary, measurable accomplishments.
