Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

Children are our future!  Education is the key to success. 

This is a non partisan position.  I run  for this election because I love children and I would like to use my strong background in Finance and Law to help our district.  I believe in providing the resoures necessary to educate our children so that they become proficiency in English, Math, and Science when they enter the workforce.  History is important for all of us. And yet, according to a recent survey,  half of the millennials do not know or believe about the Holocaust event where 6 Million Jews were killed!

I would like to improve the rankings of our schools as compared to our neighbors cities.  We are still behind in this metric.

I believe that it takes a village of effective teachers, strong parents participation and the administration support to collaborate together to educate our children.   Children First!
