Biography

My family has lived in Chino Hills since 1991. We have 2 children that attended CVUSD schools from K-12. I was a coach with  Chino Hills Girls Softball as well as a travel softball team for 12 years. I also coached my son with Little League and Pony Baseball for 7 years. I have been a Board Member of our Homeowner's Association for 18 years. I started with the business in 1989 and became a co-owner in 1998. Our business is located in Chino.

 

Together we can make CVUSD even better.

Balanced budget with a declining student enrollment

Summary

Balanced budget with a declining student enrollment

As per the 2018-2019 adopted budget, the school district will continue to lose about 600 students per year for the next 3 years. With this loss, the school district will have a reduction in both state and federal revenues. I will make sure that we look at all short term and long-term spending to make sure every dollar is being spent in the best interest of the students. This includes making sure that we are getting all funds available to the school district with the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF).

Negotiating a new contract with Associated Chino Teachers (ACT)

Summary

Negotiating a new contract with Associated Chino Teachers (ACT)

The Associated Chino Teachers (ACT) went about 18 months without a contract during the last negotiations. This is unacceptable and leads to the school district inabilities to recruit and retain quality teachers, nurses, counselors, and psychologists. The current contract ends June 30, 2019 and I will work with ACT President Brenda Walker and her team to get a new contract done that works both for the school district and ACT.
