My Top 3 Priorities

  • A solid fundamental and base K-12 education for "ALL" students.
  • A balanced and progressive approach for college, career tech and vocational educations that prepare our students for adulthood as a productive American in whatever path they choose.
  • Elimination of wasteful spending and inefficiency in school systems resulting in less taxpayer dollars in the classroom.
