My Top 3 Priorities

  • Continue to improve student Success and Safety.
  • Protect local control so priorities reflect the values of Ramona's families
  • Revise how, and when, we teach Civics & American History so students graduate with a greater love of America and the American way and a full appreciation of the historical documents used by our nation’s founders.

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

I have focused on the prioritization of children’s needs over the “Bottom Line”. I promised what I would do (sixteen-years ago). I delivered what I promised – with no excuses!

I agree with the concept of documenting “how” an answer is achieved (not just teaching to the test) and have successfully embraced the integrated subject-teaching style. However, Core foundations (of what our children are taught) should not be unilaterally imposed via some Backroom, nor by a Courtroom, and certainly not from a Federal Stateroom; but should be influenced primarily through the Family Room. Education in the United States was never meant to be top down. Therefore, I believe education is best when the federal government remains in its Constitutional limited role of being a liaison between the states without the ability to decree curriculum or mandates.


Senator Joel Anderson’s endorsement sums it up best; “We can trust that Bob Stoody will continue to put our children first. I am proud to support him."
