“I listen to people to learn about their experiences and work with them to help settle concerns. During this unprecedented time, uppermost must be ensuring the health and safety of our students, teachers and non-teaching staff. I am running for office now because I believe our District needs a fresh perspective from someone with deep and varied experience.”
