My Top 3 Priorities

  • Ensure that the most disadvantaged students of Fresno County do not continue to slip through the cracks in district and county budgets (Low-income, Special Ed., Foster youth, English Learners, etc.)
  • Ensure students are prepared to succeed in the 21st economy by supporting Career Technical Education and College readiness.
  • Supporting early childhood education programs as a long-term investment for our students and the Central Valley region.
