2020 Candidate for

WSCUHSD School Board Trustee

"Education is the right of all students.  The School Board must partner with faculty and staff to assure that relevant, quality education is available and accessible to them. 

We cannot forget that the decisions we make now will impact their intellectual, social, and physical well-being, not only in the present crisis we face, but in their unseen futures."

“A School Board should safeguard the education of the community’s students, and assure that their intellectual, physical, social, and emotional needs are met.  The Board should listen to all stakeholders, address their questions and concerns and make decisions based on the impacts of their actions on current and future students.”

"Quality education that meets the needs of all of the students in the District must be the first priority."
