Reason for running

Having served as a member of the Board of Education for six-months I have made public the short-fallings of the Board under the leadership of Ted Raskca. I will continue to do so by showing the wasteful spending of the majority of the board who wish to cut teaching positions and raise class size. I pushed for a budget that the community wanted, and that was in support of our teachers. I also spent time at our schools, talking to teachers, sitting in on classes, and meeting with principals to see and hear first hand the problems that our schools are facing.


My goal when elected with a Republican majority is to create an open BOE where residents feel their needs are being met. This will be done in a open and honest way. We (the Republican majority) will stop cutting teaching positions, make sure all students are able to learn, and most importantly televise our meetings from a location that fits our needs(the common council chambers)!!!
