My Top 3 Priorities

  • Maintain an independent voice and work with all stakeholders to solve pressing isses of student access to needed casses, more careful spending and more effective marketing and campus outreach, especally to veterans and seniors.
  • Demand accountability and transparency on all matters; remember at all times that I'm a public servant committed to integrity, honesty and professionalism.
  • Ensure that as a trustee, I am accessible (in-person meetings, phone, email, text) to constituents and stakeholders and responsive in a timely manner.
